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. 

Whatever has drawn you to look for us, we hope this site will be helpful to you.

To all the church members who are part of the visiting team. Letting people know there is someone there for them,  someone keeping in touch and reassuring them that someone cares is such an invaluable service.

Thank you also to those who provide home communions. For those who are housebound, ill, or for whatever reason  cannot come to church to receive the sacrament, this is an important connection with the church, their faith but  most of all with God.

The Vision for our Parish is that we share in God's work of spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ
and His love in our communities, spiritually, practically and sensitively.
