We are endeavouring to become a different sort of church, as we face these challenging times together. Our website contains a variety of resources to help support you. It will contain recorded reflections, services and also information about all we are doing.
We also want to provide practical care and support for those vulnerable within our community during the time. Please do contact either of your clergy we can help or support you in any way.
Congratulations to our warden at St Tysilio’s, Sellack, Patrick Darling, on his elevation to membership of the Order of St Ethelbert. This diocesan award is to recognise the outstanding contributions of so many laity to the life of the church in Herefordshire/Shropshire. As we all know, Patrick has been an outstandingly faithful and devoted witness to Christ, and leader in his local community of Sellack, through many years as a churchwarden and generous leader of neighbours and friends in the area. This award is very well deserved. Here he is pictured with his wife, Dido, after receiving his award from Bishop Richard in the cathedral.
