Hodnet Parish is located in North Shropshire, in the West Midlands and is part of Lichfield Diocese.
We are two churches who together are looking to love God and serve Him in our rural area and further afield.
Have a look at our Statement of Purpose on the "About Us" section for more information.
We hope that you find
what you are looking for here, if not please use the details
under "Contact Us" and we will do our best to answer your
We are an Anglican
church with two lovely historic buildings in different parts
of the parish:
We share the following
Core Purposes -
Baptisms, Weddings and Funerals
Baptism and Thanksgiving
* One of them was baptised or
prepared for confirmation in the parish;
The funeral would be a service of
thanksgiving with a personal tribute to the person's life.
Because of time pressures at the Crematorium, I encourage
you to use the church for a short service. Obviously I hope
we never need to meet under sad circumstances but if we did
I want you to know that your church cares very much and
wants to support and comfort you.
THE RECTOR'S DECEMBER 2017 & JANUARY 2018 MESSAGE
We are coming to the end of another year, and entering the season of Advent, which is the beginning of the Church year. This Advent season reminds us of so much, as it reveals the wonderful extent of Godís Love with the coming of His Son.
Advent is also a time of preparation, thanksgiving, challenge and reflection. The worst around us is frantically preparing for Christmas, but for many people it is not about the birth of Jesus Christ, but more about overspending and overeating.
Each year brings its own joys and sorrows, and because we donít know the future, we can never be prepared. And yet, every year when Advent comes around we have an opportunity to look to the coming year and have hope, hope that only comes from Jesus Christ himself.
Thank you to everyone from St Lukeís church and the Chapel of the Epiphany for the ongoing support I have had in organising the film night, the craft class and the junior choir. There are seven children in the junior choir, and room for many more. Our first outing will be to Beech House to sing a few songs for the residents before Christmas.
I wish you all a very peaceful and joyful Christmas and New Year, and as we share our gifts with each other, remember the greatest gift of all.
For God sent the Holy Christ Child, At Christmas for our sake,
So man might come to know Him And feel His Presence near.
And see the many miracles Performed while He was here.
And this priceless Gift of Christmas Is within the reach of all,
The rich, the poor, the young and old The greatest and the small.
So take His Priceless Gift of Love, Reach out and you receive,
And the only payment that God asks, Is just that you believe.
Helen Steiner Rice.
Your Rector, Edith
