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.

Of course, I was wrong, and the subsequent weeks saw me constantly looking at all the activities and news being generated on the village Facebook site. My email inbox became full of ‘have you seen’ messages increasing the pressure to look once again. This demanded action, and having stopped these random emails, some semblance of normality has descended again on the Buick household!
