We are a group of four Anglican parishes between Hereford and Ross in a beautiful part of the world.
There are five churches in all, ranging from the Norman period to the Arts and Crafts movement.
On this site you should get a taste of what we do.
The Christian faith is at the heart of all we do, providing both the structure of our life and the motivation to live it out.
As well as the Sunday Services, we hold regular Bible Studies, courses and gather for more modern worship.
Please take the time to look around the site to see how you can get involved.
At key moments in our lives we turn to the church to mark these rites of passage before God.
We regularly conduct Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals and seek God's blessing on all parts of life.
If you are considering marking an event in your life, please do have a look at what is on offer.
And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.
Christianity is a worldview, a set of beliefs. We gather in Lent and Advent to learn more about our faith and how it affects the way we live.
The Bible is our 'set book', but it is large and at times complicated. Each month we gather together to gain an overviews of a particular book of the Bible.
Children are not the future of the church: they are part of the church now so we hold monthly children's groups.
Sundays are not easy for everyone so we also meet on a Wednesday morning at Fownhope for a communion service followed by coffee.
Ministry is not solely the job of the vicar, but is the calling of all so we have a Benefice Ministry Group to encourage us all to live out their calling.
We are small rural parishes, and that is our strength. You will find good friends and a warm welcome.
We take seriously the safety of all the people we come into contact with. We are committed to:
If you are concerned that someone you know is at risk of, or is being abused, or presents a risk to others, please seek advice from the Diocesan Safeguarding Adviser, or if necessary, report the matter to your Local Authority Social Care Services or the Police
