Vicar to retire
 Revd Elaine Goddard says: After much thought and prayer I have decided to retire from parish ministry at the end of February 2015. The process will begin before that time to look for a new vicar to care for these parishes. We have loved our time here with you all and will miss these villages very much. Full announcement...

Plant Stall
The Plant Stall outside St Weonards Church which raises money for WaterAid has collected over £395 this year which is an all time record!! Thank you to everyone who has donated plants and bought them!!

Iona group returns
A group of 9 people recently spent a week on the holy island of Iona, staying, working and worshipping in the Abbey alongside the Iona Community. This is the fifth time a group has visited Iona from our parishes, and everyone again found it a moving and meaningful experience.

About us...
Situated in a beautiful part of one of the most rural areas in England, and close to the Welsh border, this is a lively, forward looking group of parishes and communities. This is a place where community is important, and where the churches, the parishes, the farms, the villages and the individual people are closely interwoven. 

If you are a local, this website aims to keep you up to date with local information, with our forthcoming church services and community events and with ways in which we are tackling our future. For visitors, we hope it will give you a flavour of the area and some ideas about what you'll find when you come here. We aim to keep the website up to date - it's updated at least once a week and sometimes daily.

If you'd like somewhere to be quiet, to pray or to see and touch history, you'll find all our churches open every day - there are some stunning things to be seen both inside and outside the churches and visitors are always welcome. And do come and join us at any of our regular and one-off events, for worship on Sundays or at one of our quiet services of healing and meditation.
