The Anglican Churches in the Monmouth Area


A Warm 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. 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.

Get in touch!

Our previous vicar, The Reverend Canon David McGladdery, has moved to Bristol. During the current interregnum, please refer all enquiries to The Reverend Catherine Haynes:

The Pool at Bethesda

Sermon by Rev Janet Bromley, Sunday 26th May 2019  St Thomas
…But is this telling us the truth about God’s healing power – is it intermittent – only there for those who can beat the queue?


Sermon for Trinity Sunday

Archdeacon Ambrose Mason, at St Thomas’ Church 16th June 2019.
This Sunday our Readings tell us quite a lot about God and we are given some insights into him as God-who-is-three-persons.
