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.

Pauline has asked me to contribute some thoughts for this month’s newsletter, and reflecting on the past few weeks it has been a period of significant changes for our society. The country has voted in the Referendum to leave the European Union and while the reverberations were still with us, we have seen the resignation of the Prime Minister, the appointment of a new PM, Theresa May, and behind this the challenges to the leadership in the Opposition. It feels as though we are in an unsettled, unstable era. Then on a wider note we see violence, bigotry and hatred in the recent violent events in France and the USA. We are living in strange times and the future for us both economically and politically seem very unsure.
