Welcome!

Welcome to the Benefice of Ross with Walford and Brampton Abbotts (RAWCHURCH) situated in South Herefordshire in the Diocese of Hereford. Our two lively congregations provide a mix of styles of worship in both town and rural locations, with many activities spanning both parishes.

If you are new to the parish there is a welcoming leaflet available - please click here to download it in PDF format.

In each parish you will find an ancient and beautiful church building which has served the community for centuries. We strive to continue in this tradition by serving the people of our communities today. Ross-on-Wye Parish Church is dedicated to St. Mary and Walford Parish Church is dedicated to St. Michael and All Angels. Our ministry is led by the Rector, Revd Sarah Jones, and a team of non-stipendiary clergy and lay people and involves both congregations.

We try to match the beauty of our environment by working together and sharing our ministry to enjoy the fruits of openness, friendship and willingness.

We hope you find what you are looking for in the pages ahead. If not, please contact our office, or the webmaster.

Collect for the Week

Today’s Collect
Everlasting God, you have ordained and constituted the ministries of angels and mortals in a wonderful order: grant that as your holy angels always serve you in heaven, so, at your command, they may help and defend us on earth; through Jesus Christ your Son our Lord, who is alive and reigns with you, in the unity of the Holy Spirit, one God, now and for ever.

Post Communion Prayer
Lord of heaven, in this eucharist you have brought us near to an innumerable company of angels and to the spirits of the saints made perfect: as in this food of our earthly pilgrimage we have shared their fellowship, so may we come to share their joy in heaven; through Jesus Christ our Lord.

The Gospel

Gospel Reading: John 1.47-51
47 When Jesus saw Nathanael coming towards him, he said of him, ‘Here is truly an Israelite in whom there is no deceit!’ 48 Nathanael asked him, ‘Where did you come to know me?’ Jesus answered, ‘I saw you under the fig tree before Philip called you.’ 49 Nathanael replied, ‘Rabbi, you are the Son of God! You are the King of Israel!’ 50 Jesus answered, ‘Do you believe because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree? You will see greater things than these.’ 51 And he said to him, ‘Very truly, I tell you, you will see heaven opened and the angels of God ascending and descending upon the Son of Man.’
