Ludgershall

The building

Ludergshall lies on the edge of the Bernwode Forest and it remains, as it has done for centuries, a typical English village. It still has working farms, with sheep and cattle still occasionally driven across the green. Within this tranquil setting, a church has stood on the site of St Mary's since 1080 and most probably before. Over the centuries many changes have taken place allowing the buildings to develop into what you see and enjoy today.

Arrangements during the COVID-19 emergency

Allthough our churches are closed and our services and other mid-week gatherings have been put on hold, we are still worshipping using the facilities of the internet.  

There are at least two ways to continue worship:

  • The Diocese runs regular live stream services.  Follow this link for more details
  • The Benefice holds a weekly on-line evening service at 6pm each Sunday.   Please see the separate notice on this page.

If you need pastoral assistance please contact Jenny.

 



The vacancy

As you will be aware, Priscilla has now retired and has left the benefice.

With that, we have now started the process of finding a new priest to fill the vacancy.   It can take time to find the right candidate for the post (before Priscilla arrived, the previous vacancy had lasted  some 15 months).

In the meantime Jenny will be supporting the benefice together with an array of retired and visiting clergy to take our services.

If you have a question, we recommend that a Churchwarden should be the first port of call, if appropriate to your circumstances.  You can find the list of Churchwardens in Who's Who.
