Elaine at her final service
Elaine's final service: Revd Prebendary Elaine Goddard retired as Vicar of the St Weonards Benefice on 1st March 2015. St Weonards Church was packed for her final service, which was followed by a bring and share lunch. It was an emotional and in many ways a sad time, but Elaine and her husband Richard want to say how much they appreciated the kindness of all the friends they have made over the last ten years. More pictures opposite, and the Vicar's final letters are on the Clergy page.

The process of finding a new vicar is already under way. 

Lent Lunches:
4 Mar: Little Treberon, Tretire
11 Mar: Quarry Farm, Orcop Hill
18 Mar: Treago Castle, St Weonards
25 Mar: Garway Village Hall

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.

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.
