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 MARCH 2017 MESSAGE
Once again we are
preparing for Lent and Easter, but what does that mean to
Ash Wednesday begins
with an appeal from the very heart of God himself. The
appeal is a familiar one; it echoes through the whole of
scripture. In the Bible we hear over and over again God
calling his people to himself, inviting them into a
relationship with him - a relationship that promises
renewal, healing, a fullness of life, in fact a share in
the life of God himself.
Lent is a time to
take stock, and see just how much of our hearts are turned
to God. Is it just a small percentage for a short time on
a Sunday, a few minutes night and morning, or when
everything else is done?
Today we can
parallel our forty days ahead with the story of Exodus, in
which we are gradually being rescued from the darkness of
our lives (Egypt) and prepared in the wilderness for
Easter and the resurrection (the Promised Land)
Let us all begin a
new journey, a journey into a closer relationship with
God, and allow God to touch our inmost heart, and pray
that during the next forty days he will do just that.
(Joel 2: 12-13)
