Welcome to the Upper Wylye Valley Team
Growing in the Love of God
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).

Prayer Diary during Coronavirus 2020
The Ministry Team of the Upper Wylye Valley will be praying for all who live, work and visit our parishes.
We will be following a prayer diary for this period, holding prayers on certain days of the week for each of our parishes. Through joining together in prayer, we are all connected and are all part of the communion of saints. Through prayer we know that we do not stand alone, but have the support of our fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, and the strength and courage of God to endure the difficult months ahead.
If you would like to join us in praying in your own homes for our communities, please do follow the prayer diary below.
We are urged throughout the New Testament to pray for one another, and Paul in his first letter to Timothy tells us: "First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for everyone" (1 Timothy 2:1). Paul is clearly teaching us that we are to pray for one another. As your ministry team, we always have this close to our hearts. It is a privilege that we are able to follow Christ's call and make praying for you a priority in our daily lives.
If you would like to join the Church for daily services please do visit the Church of England website at:
From this link you will find services of Daily Prayer which are available in both contemporary and traditional forms and for all times of day.
The Church of England has crafted two simple acts of worship, particularly geared to those who are isolated or housebound, or who are unable to attend church. For these acts of worship please do click on the link below:
If you would like to have prayers said or have an opportunity to pray with someone, please do not hesitate to contact any of the ministry team whose contacts can be found on the Upper Wylye Valley Team website https://upperwylyevalleyteam.com/
