What's Going On
During the COVID-19 Lockdown our church buildings were closed. However, we increased our online presence, moving our services and gatherings online. We have a dedicated YouTube channel which we invite you to subscribe to- Tidenham Parish Online Church - where you can find services, sermons, songs and other resources. A direct link to each Sunday's service and any downloadable materials, including a weekly bulletin, will be posted in the News section of this website each week.
Our regular Sunday services are now taking place at 9.00am (St Mary & St Peter, Tidenham) and 11.00am (St Luke’s, Tutshill). The parish is also closely aligned with St Briavels & Hewelsfield with Brockweir.
Throughout the week we have a number of other regular services and morning prayer.
Ministry to children, young people and families is an important priority for the Church here in the Parish of Tidenham. We long to see our children and young people immersed in the love of God and for them to grow in personal faith and belonging.
As well as services, the Parish offers opportunities for Christians to meet in small groups to grow in faith and support one another in living life together. Anyone interested is welcome to join. Find out more and see a list of current Life Groups.
Music is an important part of life and an important part of our life together as a Christian community, with a music group, choirs, bell ringing and more.
We have a range of other groups held weekly, monthly, and throughout the year including Men's Group, Wives, lunches and more.
Following ordination Revd Janice Hamilton serves as Pioneer Curate for the Parish. Janice is funded by the Diocese to work 3 days a week on the Pioneer Project in Sedbury which has mainly centred on the development of Sedbury Space.
Tidenham Parish is a Fairtrade Parish, and we try to encourage people to buy local and buy Fairtrade. The Parish participates in Fairtrade Fortnight and runs stalls at the churches. If you are looking for great gift ideas then the Traidcraft catalogues are available year-round. Contact Julia or Cate for more details.
Set up in 2014 to support the Parish church, the Friends of Tidenham is an independent (but very much related) charity in its own right. The Friends have worked and continue to work with the PCC on various projects.
Tidenham Parish is a member of the local Chepstow and District Churches Together, also known as Cytun in Welsh. As such we are involved in a number of activities.
