Message from the Bishop of Hereford

The Festival of Churches gives us all a great opportunity to warmly welcome villagers and visitors to every church across our whole diocese. I know that Congregational members everywhere have been involved over many months in doing a huge amount to plan events for this weekend so that others can enjoy their church buildings as much as they do.

Do come. Do join in. Do bring family and friends. Do enjoy the beauty of our amazing heritage of church buildings. Do see them as the living places of worship that they are, where God is present and known and loved.

The churches are your churches. Their congregations seek to serve God and their local communities and people.

Have a great Festival time!

Anthony
Bishop of Hereford
