Welcome to our churches

We have two buildings in our Benefice. St Mary the Virgin is St Briavels’ church, just opposite the castle and Hewelsfield Church, named for St Mary Magdalene, is on the outskirts of our village and serves both Hewelsfield and Brockweir.

Each church is open in the hours of daylight so if you would like to take some time out in a peaceful setting you would be most welcome.
