"For just as each of us has one body with many members,
and these members do not all have the same function,
so in Christ we, though many, form one body,
and each member belongs to all the others."
Welcome from Rector Trevor Kemp and his wife Elaine.
We hope you enjoy our new website and find it useful. It was launched on November 1st 2015 and we will of course still be seeking to improve it, there should never be empty pages or links that don’t work and we hope the editing has shed light on the Rector’s dyslexic spelling!
If you find anything not working or any errors do let us know and we will seek to correct them.
To get help with the website scroll to the bottom of the home page and click on the word
'Help' after 'This church website is powered by Church Edit'.
Thameshead Benefice is part of The Church of England in The Diocese of Gloucester. The Benefice consists of 6 parishes and 9 churches in the South Cotswolds covering an area of over 70 square miles. Half the size of the Isle of Wight!
We have some wonderful historic buildings in some wonderful Cotswold villages and we are very proud of our heritage but first of all we are called to be the body of Christ.
Jesus says that his followers are his friends, better still we are called to be God's family, daughters and sons of the Living God, how amazing is that! Friends and family are all about relationships and we seek to grow in our relationship with each other as we grow in friendship with God. The church is the body of people who meet to grow closer to God and each other that we might become the kind of people God calls us and made us to be. It is the discovery of what it means to be truly human.
This is an exciting journey and we would love to share it with you so whether you are on holiday, just moving in or have been here for years it would be a joy to meet you.
