Welcome to the Upper Wylye Valley Team
Growing in the Love of God
Welcome to the Upper Wylye Valley Team made up of ten churches along the beautiful Wylye River in Wiltshire. We hope this website will give you a taste of life in the Upper Wylye Valley where we live out our calling to grow in the love of God through hope, prayer and service. We come together regularly to worship God and enjoy one another’s company with a wide variety of events. Please take a look under Worship to see details of future services and under Groups for opportunities to meet together. If you would like to delve further into the life of our team of parishes, then please do take a look at our monthly publication, the Parish News.
With such a variety of worship and events there is something for everyone. So why not pop along and join us as we journey in our faith, encountering God and serving all God’s beloved children?
Thank you for exploring our website. Whoever you are, and wherever you live, may “the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all” (2 Corinthians 13:13).
The Benefice is now in a vacancy. In the meantime, the Rev Clifford Stride, house for duty Team Vicar will be leading the Ministry Team and will deal with all enquiries regarding christenings, weddings, and funerals. He can be contacted on 01985 850941 the team email account is as before firstname.lastname@example.org. The advert for a new Rector has been advertised. The Advert and Profile can be found below and on the Diocesan website.
Heavenly Father we thank you for the ministry of Trudy Hobson, our previous Rector, and we pray your presence and blessing upon her. We ask now that you will help us to share responsibility, grow in faith, love one another, care for those in need, reach out to others, and welcome newcomers. Lord Jesus, guard and grow this church as we serve you together in this period without a rector. Please guide those who are seeking the right minister for us, and those who are seeking the right church for their ministry, that together we may discover your way for the future and see your kingdom grow. Amen.
The Parishes of the Upper Wylye Valley Team take their responsibilities surrounding the safeguarding of children, young people, and adults who may be at risk very seriously, and works in partnership with the Diocese of Salisbury to ensure that we work in accordance with best practice at all times.
