Welcome

“Whoever you are; wherever you come from, you are welcome here!”

The people of The Monmouth Group of Parishes try to make these words come alive by example. We are a community of four Anglican parishes in Monmouth and the immediate rural area and part of the Church in Wales.

Our worship is centred on the Eucharist and the sacramental life of God’s church, that we may grow as people who witness, live and experience God’s love at work in the ordinary rhythm of daily life.

In all our churches, you will find a warm welcome from people who strive to follow Jesus through prayer, fellowship and service to the wider community.

Rev David McGladdery

Fr David McGladdery, Vicar and Area Dean


Our churches are not places to be given answers, but safe places to ask questions, find reflective space and be ourselves before God who is love. We seek to honour that diversity that strengthens us and enhances and enriches our life together.

Our churches are places where we have the opportunity to continue our journey towards God together, young and old, encouraging and supporting one another and welcoming the visitor and the stranger with a hospitality that assures no one need travel alone.

Reflections after a week of violence

Fr David’s Sermon 19 June 2016
There is nothing we encounter in life or death, nothing we have done or left undone, no circumstance of the world around us or the one within us that is not subject to the power of Jesus: the power to restore life, to forgive, to love, to heal, and to carry us through times we cannot bear on our own.

Fr David’s sermon 12 June 2016
