Growing in the Love of God

Upper Wylye Valley Team

Last Updated: 23rd November 2019  What's New ?


Welcome to the Upper Wylye Valley Team made up of ten churches along the beautiful Wyle River in Wiltshire. We hope this website will give you a taste of life in the Upper Wylye Valley where we live out our calling to grow in the love of God through hope, prayer and service. We come together regularly to worship God and enjoy one another’s company with a wide variety of events. Please do take a look at the calendar to see our regular services and opportunities to meet together, and please do explore the weekly Pew News (in the drop-down section under the ‘Worship’ tab). If you would like to delve further into the life of our team of parishes, then please do take a look at our monthly publication, the Parish News (in the drop-down section of the ‘Team’ tab).

With such a variety of worship and events there is something for everyone, so why not pop along and join us as we journey in our faith, encountering God and serving all God’s beloved children.

Thank you for exploring our website, whoever you are, and where ever you live, may “the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all” (2 Corinthians 13:13).

If Prayer

It doesn’t seem possible when we see a tiny egg that it can transform into a beautiful Green Lacewing. Yet we often see such transformations all around us in this beautiful world God created for us, just think of how the trees and fields change with the seasons. But it is not only the seasons that transform our beautiful countryside, we too cause change; good and bad.

The wonderful prayer below, written by John Birch, highlights that if we were to be more like Christ, then we and our world would be changed for the better.

I invite you to join me in praying this prayer that we might be transformed in order to transform our world.

Rev Trudy Hobson

If we had a fraction of the faith in you that you have in us
Then this world would be transformed, Lord.

If we showed a fraction of the love that you show to us
Then this world would be transformed, Lord

If we possessed a fraction of the patience that you display with us
Then this world would be transformed, Lord.

If we shared just a portion of the blessings that we have received from you
Then this world would be transformed, Lord.

If we showed as much trust in others as you have shown in us
Then this world would be transformed, Lord.

If we claimed just a fraction of the power you promised to your Church
Then this world would be transformed, Lord.

Transform us first, Lord, that we might transform this world
Through your love and your power.
