     Pauline Photo                  WELCOME

 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 September Newsletter

Dear Friends,
Necessity dictates I write my letter for the Parish News early in August, which means I have no idea what will be headline news when you read it. The world continues to feel very unstable and a confusing place. Meantime, the seasons roll on, the sun rises, the moon waxes and wanes and some things, dogs having to be fed and walked, never change. The English weather, true to its reputation, is cold and wet and so I am sitting here with a hot water bottle having made myself a hot chocolate to try to warm up! And, September is the start of a new academic year.

However, many Septembers come and go and however many years it is since I had children at school, this month will always speak to me of new beginnings; new shoes, new school uniform, gloriously pristine, at least for a few days anyway. I had four children and it used to take me ages to get them and their accompanying lunches, homework bags, PE kit and everything else ready for school; I remember getting up at the unearthly hour of 5.30 am to manage it all. Now, my grandchildren are at school and my son is in charge of the proceedings; how quickly those years have passed. As Paul Simon put it so succinctly in his beautiful song Leaves that are Green ‘time hurries on’. Sometimes time hurries on in such way we seem unable to actually inhabit our days in any meaningful way, nor appreciate our surroundings
