Our aim in creating this website has been threefold:- firstly, to publicize information about our beautiful little church:- times of worship, social events, it's history and architecture; secondly, to share with you our enjoyment of the area in which it is set; and thirdly, to provide you with some thoughtful reading for the quieter moments in your life. Although stemming from the rhythm of the church's year, these articles could well speak meaningfully to you at any time.
Above all, we hope you don't just rush through our lovingly-created pages, but enjoy spending some time with us.
Jean and Pauline

Again this year (January 2018) we have had very little of "the white stuff" so here is a look back at a few days in the winters of 2008 and 2009. The views are taken in and around Clippesby Hall, before the construction of the reservoir. Accompanied by some delicate and peaceful harp music by Handel.

Our Benefice is in interregnum again with the resignation on health grounds of our dear Rector; we wish for God's blessings on her and Mike and we will continue to remember them in our prayers and think with gratitude of their ministry.
The present vacancy has meant the rewriting of our Parish profile to advertise for someone to come to our benefice as Priest in Charge. We are hoping that the right person will come along very soon now that the wheels have been set in motion. A meeting with the Rural Dean took place last week when four Clippesby PCC members attended to agree the Parish & Benefice Profile & to appoint two Interviewers and fulfil legal formalities.
