Monmouth Praise! Weekly 13th June

MPW June 13th

This week: the story of St. Denis’s church – or is it St. Dennis’s or St. Ishen’s? – and why did the vicar bury the Bible in his garden? Also, an update from St. Michael’s Mitchel Troy, where building work is well underway to open the church to a wider community. And a poem about the spirit of Christianity from the Welsh poet Harri Webb.

Monmouth Praise! Weekly 6th June

Rhiannon Wynne-Lord explains how we are restarting family services and what she hopes for. Meet John Jones, Thurifer – incense specialist – at St. Mary’s Monmouth. Revd. Tim uses Jesus’ words from the Gospel to remind us that anyone who says they have a commission from God to lord it over others in the church is deceiving themselves. Plus Home Communion with Revd. Karen.

4 PM at The Priory


For an unprecedented second week! Meeting together to do church differently at 4 this Sunday afternoon. Worship, fellowship, cake…

4PM at the Priory

We have launched a new Sunday afternoon worship service “4PM at the Priory”. Covid regulations mean numbers who can come to the Priory are limited of course. But the service will be available on Zoom and YouTube. Here’s a short sample of what it looked like on Zoom last Sunday.

If you’d like to join on Zoom, the link will be in the weekly notices from

Daily Prayer 4th Week of November

This week’s Daily Prayer video includes a Compline with Paul Stafford, our newly licensed Lay Reader, and a Bible reading with Val Howells.

Compline from Monmouth Parishes

As a comfort during this “firebreak” pandemic lockdown, Compline evening prayers will be said each evening. You can find all the Compline recordings here.

Thursday’s Compline comes from St. Oudoceus in Llandogo, led by Revd. Canon Nigel Juckes.

Wednesday’s Compline is Celtic, the “Felgid Compline”, led by Revd. Owen Williams and his wife Liz Williams.

Tuesday’s Compline was led by Bishop Dominic. He told us how the monks of Monmouth would complete their day – Compline – with the prayers we are sharing today.



The first Compline for the “firebreak” was led by Revd. Karen Dack and Revd. Tim Dack at Old Church Penallt.
