“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.
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.
For a calendar of all upcoming events, see the Events page.
The final Monday evening housegroup this year will be on Monday 30th November at 15 Caxton View. The Tuesday group will not meet again until the New Year.

Fr David’s sermon 15 November 2015 – after the Paris attacks
So what is our response to be? Jesus tell us that the pain is the beginning of the birth pangs. The whole point of the Christian story is summed up thus:
“While we were yet his enemies, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5: 6-10) In other words, God shows love for us precisely by putting off the divine power that we crave.
Fr David’s sermon, 18 October 2015 at St Thomas’ Church
“…cure the sick who are there, and say to them, ‘The kingdom of God has come near to you’.”
Why do we come to Church? Why are we do we call ourselves Christian? The answer to those questions lie within the celebration of St. Luke held thoughout the Church today.
