 Welcome to the Cley Hill Churches, a benefice of 2 parishes made up of 7 churches situated  close to the ancient Hill Fort of Cley Hill and the town of Warminster in West Wiltshire . On our  journey of faith we are learning together what it means to serve our communities and to live out God’s call for us to ‘love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind and all your strength and to love your neighbour as yourself. ‘ It’s an exciting, challenging journey and we would love you to come and see what it’s all about. Whoever you are, and for whatever reason you are reading these words, may God bless you, surround you with his love, and bring you peace.

Revd Pauline Reid  Rural Dean and Priest in Charge

 Pauline's August Newsletter

Dear Friends,
A few week’s ago I went away for four days to Swanwick in Derbyshire for Salisbury diocesan conference where all the clergy, including Archdeacons and Bishops, gathered together for a time of teaching, worship and let’s be honest, sleeping! There were excellent speakers and workshops but it was very noticeable that quite a number of people were so tired that the minute they sat down they fell asleep, and I admit to being one of them. I did imbibe some wisdom I think, and it was lovely not to have to cook for a few days, but now it is back to real life with the reality of trying to visit where I can, write interesting sermons (that don’t result in half the congregation asleep!), baptise babies, marry lovely couples, plan and take funerals and just do what a parish priest does as best I can.

The theme of the conference was ‘Faith in an age of uncertainty’. My words in the July magazine about living in uncertain times and the difficulty of responding appropriately at the right moment were horrifically fulfilled in the shape of the fire at Grenfell Tower. While of course we are all still incredibly shocked and saddened by those events, time marches on and the tragedy is no longer headline news, what with all the debates about Brexit and the prime minister’s leadership. But those involved in the events of that night have no choice in the matter, they can not decide to push what happened to one side to focus on happier things because they are living day by day, moment by moment, with pain, grief and terrible loss that will change them irrevocably, and which will haunt them for the rest of their lives.............
