Welcome to The Benefice of Farndon with Thorpe & Hawton with Cotham
Our benefice is made up of the Church of England parishes of Farndon, Hawton, Thorpe and Cotham and it contains three of the Newark area churches, in Southwell Diocese. (The Diocese of Southwell covers Nottinghamshire.) Farndon parish church dedicated to Saint Peter, Hawton parish church dedicated to All Saints, and Thorpe parish church dedicated to Saint Laurence. Cotham parish church was dedicated to Saint Michael, unfortunately the Cotham church has been declared redundant and so the members of Cotham church meet in the school rooms.
Of our churches All Saints Hawton is the best known, being famous for its fourteenth century Easter Sepulcher.
