to the Cley Hill Churches, a benefice of 2 parishes made up of 6
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.
Rev Pauline Reid, Rector and Rural Dean

The Messy Church Team are very disappointed not to be holding a live Christingle service on 5th December as we had planned due to the rising cases of Covid. We felt it would be unwise just now but we will be putting together some Christingle packs which will be distributed to families across the Benefice. We will also video record a short service that you will be able to join in with from home. All the instructions will be in the pack.
Getting married is a joyful occasion and we would love to welcome you to one of our churches for your big day. If you are interested in getting married in one of the churches in our benefice please do contact our Wedding Coordinator. More information can be found on the Weddings Page.
