About Us

The Monmouth Group of Parishes is a community of four Anglican parishes:

We belong to the Diocese of Monmouth in the Church in Wales. As a group of parishes, we work together on social events, and we worship together when there is a fifth Sunday of the month. When we come together as a group, there is usually food and drink involved at some point!
