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
Hello everyone - today I listened to the resources that are free using this phone line from the Church of England, I was really impressed by the content. - A word from Archbishop Justin Welby if you select *, a hymn reflection on 1, some hymns to listen to or join in with on 2, some guided armchair exercises on 3, a reflection on a particular subject on 4, the weekly Church of England service on 6, Morning and Evening prayers on 7, and Mother’s Union midday prayers on 9. I do encourage you to listen in - choose what will be helpful for you- the resources are updated regularly.
Alpha @ Cley Hill
As we can no longer gather in person to run an Alpha Course we’re going online! Join us as we continue to explore the big questions of life together. For more information or to register your interest email email@example.com – we would love to hear from you, whether you have done the Alpha course before and would like to refresh or whether it’s all new to you. We will gather on Wednesday evenings for 1 hour from 7.30pm starting on 9th September. Alpha would normally begin with refreshments so bring along a drink and perhaps something light to eat, if you would like to, as we get together over Zoom. After the welcome we will watch a video together which will last approximately 25mins followed by a time to ask questions and share one another’s’ thoughts in smaller break out groups, finishing around 8.30pm. We look forward to hearing from you. Revd Gay Maynard
