The Anglican Churches in the Monmouth Area

The Anglican Churches in the Monmouth Area

Welcome!

We are a group of Anglican Parishes belonging to the Church in Wales. Located within and around the beautiful town of Monmouth.

Each of our Parishes has its own history and unique identity but we recognise that we are all part of the Family of God and so we work together with one another, with our communities, and with our sisters and brothers in Christ across the denominations.

Our church buildings are currently closed due to Covid 19. However, we are finding new ways of worshipping and sharing together. Whilst we pray and worship in our homes, we are still one in Christ, and in solidarity with all who suffer at this time. We warmly invite you to join us.

Please scroll down for the latest service videos, along with service sheets and intercessions for you to read online or download.

Celebrating Pentecost Together

Have you seen the red ribbons tied outside St Thomas’ Church on the railings? Sunday 31st May is Pentecost, when we celebrate the gift of God’s Spirit – sent to bring us fresh courage, hope and inspiration. God is with us- we are not alone!

If you are in the area, you are invited to tie a ribbon for yourself, a neighbour or loved one, to show that we belong together. As you do so, you might like to say a prayer for our community, and remember friends loved ones you haven’t seen for a while.

Whether you can get out and about or not, we are together through God’s Spirit as we pray in our homes on this special day. See below for our Pentecost worship.
