Please see below for details of all our Harvest services.
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.

I write on a glorious autumn day with just a hit of nip in the air and the first leaves beginning to fall; I love this time of year both in terms of the season of the natural world and of the church. As the light fades and the nights draw in we remember how fortunate we are as we give thanks and celebrate at our Harvest Festivals.
Thinking about this and about the abundance of autumn fruit we are blessed with I remembered how my mother used to bottle fruit and make endless pots of jam and chutney. We usually had an enormous glut of raspberries and she would make raspberry vinegar, which we would have with plain steamed pudding; gosh, steamed puddings, now there’s a good memory, especially the treacle one with unctuous sticky goo at the bottom! ..............
