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.

Please join us at this unique event at St Briavels.

We have the Pillowell Silver Band and our preacher is Rev Dr Rob Jones from Newnham.

Thy Kingdom Come 9 days of prayer between Ascension and Pentecost (Whitsun)

During this time Justyn Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury, invites to spend time each day in prayer for this and to help us there will be prayer booklets in Church to guide our prayers. Please take and use them.
