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's November Newsletter
As I write I have just driven to Horningsham to deliver my meringues, pears and cream to the Luncheon Club and what a beautiful drive it was with the leaves on the trees turning ever more golden each passing day and the light shifting across the downs as the clouds moved across the sky.
Here we are once again in that season of remembering. On November 13th we remember and honour those who have given their lives for their country so that we can live in peace, and in the world context we find ourselves in today where for so many people peace must seem an elusive dream, we should be truly grateful for their sacrifice. Personally, I feel very privileged and humbled to be able to lead our Remembrance Day services here in the Cley Hill Parishes, as I am acutely aware that a very high percentage of my congregation will be retired military personnel who have experienced the realities of armed conflict first hand.
