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 FEBRUARY 2018 MESSAGE
Once again we stand at the beginning of another year, and I’m sure we wonder what this one will bring for us. I wish everyone God’s blessings and pray for St Luke’s Church and the Chapel of the Epiphany. I realise that ‘Church’ may not be top of everyone’s to-do list, and yet ‘Church’ is where we can experience love and hope from the One who holds our future in his hands.
Can you imagine Hodnet without St Luke’s or Peplow without the Chapel of The Epiphany? That can happen if we fail to encourage more people to come along to Church and be part of the wonderful community in which they live.
Along with the help of many others I have introduced a film night on the first Wednesday of every month in St Luke’s Church, and a children’s film show the last Saturday of every month. There is also a junior choir every Thursday in church at 6.00pm, and the senior choir at 7.00pm. We welcome anyone who would like to join us and continue the joy of singing to God.
The Chapel of the Epiphany holds a craft class every fortnight on a Wednesday afternoon, so if you like a chat and a cup of tea please get in touch with me.
Thank you for the support I continue to receive as your Rector and together we can dedicate ourselves to God’s Work.
With all God's blessings, your Rector, Edith
Lord Jesus, I give my hands to do your work, I give you my feet to go your way.
I give you my eyes to see as you do, I give you my tongue to speak your words.
I give you my mind, that you may think in me,
I give you my spirit, that you may pray in me.
Above all, I give you my heart, that you may love in me.
I give you my whole self, that you may grow in me.
So that it is you, Lord Jesus, who lives and works and prays in me.
