Vicar:  Revd Canon Philippa A. Brunt.

A very warm welcome to our website where you can find out about the parish of Parkend and Viney Hill in the beautiful Forest of Dean

Since 2007 we have been a Local Ministry Benefice under the Diocese of Gloucester's scheme, which encourages the use of all our gifts and talents in God's service in this local area in which we live and work.  We share our faith in Jesus Christ by ministry through our worship, our fellowship and practical care to the community, also working closely with other local churches. 

In 2008 we became a United Parish with our two parish churches of
St Paul's Parkend and All Saints' Viney Hill.  These buildings stand as witnesses to God's presence and places of prayer to encourage our Christian life. They are also special places for many people due to family or community connections and we seek to make them hospitable places of welcome.
