A Message from the Ministry Team

Our Benefice Churches are open daily.

Communion services are offered in church at 9.00am as follows:    Cold Ashton 1st Sunday; Marshfield 2nd Sunday; Tormarton 3rd Sunday; West Littleton 4th Sunday. Marshfield Church also has services each week at 10.30am and 6pm. 

Jesus calls us ‘to love our neighbours as ourselves’ which we do willingly, but our nation also needs us to be a community of prayer. St James wrote that if  ‘anyone lacks wisdom they should ask God for it’. This is something we can all join with for those in leadership at this time, as well as praying for strength in body, mind and spirit for all in healthcare, education and key work and for those who are economically vulnerable, anxious, ill, or bereaved. 

May God continue to grant us courage, patience, His protection and healing.                                                      Rev. Sally Wheeler

Contactless Giving at St Mary’s Church

As you now enter the Church you will see sat on a white plinth our latest acquisition, a contactless giving unit.

This is called Goodbox.

The pandemic has changed many things in our lives and one of them is a reduction in how many of us use cash.

We felt there was a need for us to embrace this and after much discussion decided Goodbox was best suited for our Church especially as it was recommended by the Bristol Diocese.

The screen is set up at the moment as a £5 donation but this can be altered up and down by the arrows either side. Give what ever you want.There is a maximum of £45.

When you have selected your donation present your card and the screen will acknowledge your giving.

We have found our giving has fallen during these times. The fabric and also mission of the Church still needs your support and it is hoped that this plus the giving link on our Church web site will make it easier for those that wish to support the Church.

Revd Sally Wheeler becomes Honorary Canon

A personal “Thank You” from Sally to everyone who came to the Cathedral for her Installation as an Honorary Canon at a special Evensong on 10th October. It was wonderful to have over 30 familiar faces from our Benefice at this service as well as some of Sally’s family and we were all welcomed to our Cathedral.

An Honorary Canon is invited to join the College of Canons at the Cathedral and be a voice from our part of the Diocese into its life and mission. Sally was installed in the ‘Chippenham seat’ in the Cathedral Quire which is hers to sit in for the duration of her ministry.

You can see in the photo Sally’s new Canon’s scarf with red trimming which has on it the Bristol Cathedral badge of three crowns and a ship. The crowns are symbols the Holy Trinity and the ship is in reference to Bristol’s origins as a port city. The three crowns are also the Diocesan symbol and you can find them in St Mary’s Marshfield in the stained glass windows of the South Aisle.

Youth Alpha Plus


Following the success of our Youth Alpha course we are launching a new group for anyone who is in year 12/13 at college or university.  We will explore what Christian faith in today’s world looks like for this age group and work together to achieve specific charitable goals.  Those who have a Christian faith, are undecided or who want help to understand the World around us are very welcome.

The Chosen

This is a series of films, beautifully made, telling the story of Jesus and some of his followers. The Chosen spotlights the real-life men and women who knew Christ.

Episodes of The Chosen are available to watch by downloading The Chosen App for free. Season 2 is now available and filming for Season 3 is underway.

This is what people say about it:

This series is quite brilliant. The best depiction of Jesus and the disciples I’ve ever watched. Some great back stories and great acting too – not some of the disappointing stuff you get with low budget ‘religious’ series. Well worth watching whether you’re a believer or an atheist.

John Marsden April 7, 2021

Excellent. I struggle to stop watching. I am blessed, and I love how it makes me think of what might had happened in between the lines of the scriptures. Thanks!  No connection issues or viewing issues. Brilliant! Praise God!

Bible Study – ‘The Bible Course’

A new group for anyone who’d like grow in faith alongside others starts this autumn.

The Bible Course (from the Bible Society) is a contemporary way to gain an over view of the Bible and see ‘God’s Big Story’ in context.

The group will meet on Thursday evenings 7.30-9.00pm in the Chapel (Marshfield High Street) and the first meeting is on 7th October.

We’d love to see you there.
