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.

The Gospel

Luke 7.1-10

Jesus entered the town of Capernaum. 2 A centurion there had a slave whom he valued highly, and who was ill and close to death. 3 When he heard about Jesus, he sent some Jewish elders to him, asking him to come and heal his slave. 4 When they came to Jesus, they appealed to him earnestly, saying, ‘He is worthy of having you do this for him, 5 for he loves our people, and it is he who built our synagogue for us.’ 6 And Jesus went with them, but when he was not far from the house, the centurion sent friends to say to him, ‘Lord, do not trouble yourself, for I am not worthy to have you come under my roof; 7 therefore I did not presume to come to you. But only speak the word, and let my servant be healed. 8 For I also am a man set under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to one, “Go,” and he goes, and to another, “Come,” and he comes, and to my slave, “Do this,” and the slave does it.’ 9 When Jesus heard this he was amazed at him, and turning to the crowd that followed him, he said, ‘I tell you, not even in Israel have I found such faith.’ 10 When those who had been sent returned to the house, they found the slave in good health.
