At the heart of what we do is wanting more people to come to know Jesus.
We are the Church of England in Herefordshire, south Shropshire and some parishes in Worcestershire, Powys and Monmouthshire. Our worshipping community is made up of 13,300 people of all ages and backgrounds. Nearly 7,500 people attend a service each Sunday and 12,000 children attend one of our 78 schools and academies.

Through the Follow conversations and process in 2015/16 we built a shared understanding of our part in God’s mission and created a five-year strategy for our Diocese to 2021.

The communities and churches of our diocese are full of people who give generously of their time, skills and money. Our clergy are amazing - We aim to raise enough to cover reduced income caused by Covid-19, please continue to support your local church as your first priority. If you are able to give to the Diocese of Hereford, your donation will be used to help pay for our clergy now and in the coming months.
