Thanks to the Garfield Weston Foundation

We’d just like to say a big thank you to everyone at the Garfield Weston Foundation, as they have very kindly given us a grant of £2,500 towards the cost of our new kitchen and fully accessible WC. These facilities will help Billingsley Church to be used for wider range of events, and so will help to ensure the future of this beautiful building.

New Rector Appointed!

The patrons of the benefice, the Bishop of Hereford and Martyrs Memorial Trust, are delighted to be able to announce that the Reverend Mike Harris, currently Vicar of Amington, Tamworth in Staffordshire, has accepted their offer of the post of Rector of The Severn Valley Group of Parishes. Arrangements will be made for his licensing and induction to take place – possibly in September. We will keep you updated on exact dates as soon as we have confirmation.

We would like to thank Rev’d Val Smith for all of her amazing hard work during this period of vacancy and offer a welcome to Rev’d Mike and his family when they join us in the Autumn.
