Edna Hughes is looking for people to join our church flower guild. Each week we put fresh flowers in the church, and on the altar and at the war memorial plaque. At Easter, Harvest and Christmas everyone joins together to make the church a wonderful place. Containers and oasis are provided, you just need to provide the flowers.

If you want to join Edna and her team either put you name on the flower list at the back of the church or ring Edna (contact details here)

St Mary’s choir

If you enjoy singing why not come and join Almeley church choir.  You don’t need to read music or have the best voice in the world as long as you are enthusiastic.  Anyone is welcome but we especially need more children aged around 7 upwards. Come along to practice at 6.30 on Fridays followed by games

St Mary’s Lottery

It currently costs us £425 per week just to keep our church and its ministry going.  The income from the lottery goes a long way to help us with this cost.

The new year of the lottery starts with the March draw.  If you are new to the village or just haven't got round to joining please consider it.

All the details are here.

Our Community

Almeley Parish comprises Almeley Village and the hamlets of Almeley Wootton, Woonton, and Logaston. We are situated in the English county of Herefordshire, approximately 15 miles North West of Hereford in the beautiful rural Marches border country between England and Wales. We are at the centre of a thriving farming community. Part of our charm is that we are off the beaten track in a relatively remote area, not on a direct route to anywhere.

On line newspapers

The Hereford diocese NEWSpaper has been revamped and renamed ‘Reflections’  Read it on line here.

In Review is a monthly tabloid sized newspaper published by the National Church Institutions of the Church of England.  The latest editions are here.

Community Larder

Throughout the year we ask you to bring tinned food, dried food,etc. to the church to be sent to the Community Larder centres in the county.   In particular we have been asked for sugar, tinned custard, rice pudding, tinned vegetables, tinned meat and tuna.

These centres help people who are in need by providing them with a bag of essential food.  There will be a box at the back of the church in which to put your offerings.

There is a Community Larder in Kington, and that is where your donations will be taken.
