Our church buildings are currently closed due to the corona virus.

However, we are finding new ways of worshiping and sharing together. Scroll down for our Palm Sunday videos and other resources.

Meet our new vicar

Revd Tim Dack, Monmouth Ministry area
Reverend Tim Dack

Reverend Timothy Dack is our new Priest in Charge of the Monmouth Group of Parishes made up of the Priory Church of St Mary, Monmouth; the Church of St Thomas the Martyr, Overmonnow; St Michael and All Angels, Mitchel Troy; St Cenedlan’s Church, Rockfield; St Wonnow’s Church, Wonastow.

Tim will also be Ministry Area leader along with his wife Reverend Karen, who will have care of a group of rural parishes.

Tim and Karen have just joined us from New Zealand, which they left just as lockdown was being implemented.

Tim and Karen were licenced on 2nd April via a Zoom meeting with Bishop Cherry, the Archdeacon of Monmouth and the Revd Catherine Haynes.
Bishop Cherry said: “Once we are allowed to gather in our church buildings again, they will both be licensed and inducted as incumbents and there will be parties and a proper welcome for both of them.”

When asked what should we call him Tim said “it depends upon your tradition; if it is your tradition and you want to call me Father Tim I will never object, but in many of our Churches this is not the tradition and I will respond positively to Reverend Tim, Mr Dack, Vicar, Tim and even Hey You, depending on the circumstances!

Spiritual Holy Communion service with Reverend Tim and Karen
Christian Greetings.
Reverend Catherine will soon be posting a Palm Sunday Family Service on the Church website and her service begins at 11.00am. Karen and I will also be celebrating a Spiritual Holy Communion online through this video, so bring a small piece of bread to the service and if you wish you can print the order; however, you can also just listen and join in the well-known hymns.

Here is “take two” – a slightly different version to the one released yesterday. (It turns out the tune for “Ride on, Ride on in Majesty” is still covered by copyright!)
