FaceBook

Vicar:  Revd Canon Philippa A. Brunt.

A very warm welcome to our website where you can find out about the parish of Parkend and Viney Hill in the beautiful Forest of Dean.

Since 2007 we have been a Local Ministry Benefice under the Diocese of Gloucester's scheme, which encourages the use of all our gifts and talents in God's service in this local area in which we live and work.  We share our faith in Jesus Christ by ministry through our worship, our fellowship and practical care to the community, also working closely with other local churches. 

In 2008 we became a United Parish with our two parish churches of
St Paul's Parkend and All Saints' Viney Hill.  These buildings stand as witnesses to God's presence and places of prayer to encourage our Christian life. They are also special places for many people due to family or community connections and we seek to make them hospitable places of welcome.

Based on the lives of British Saints




To all our flower arrangers for their commitment and skill.  This month we give special  thanks to everyone involved in our Parish Flower Festival, for all their hard work, vision and dedication in creating a feast for the senses, food for thought and showing the beauty of God's creation.

 

Thanks also to all who go into our local schools  as  part of the "Open the Book" and "Storyteller" teams and participate in other activities such as holiday clubs, working with and alongside the children and young people in the Parish and helping to make God
relevant to them.
