Bishop of Hereford's Message
Growing up I had a real soft spot for the work of Gerry & Sylvia Anderson. Even if you donâ€™t know their names you will recognise their credits: Thunderbirds, Captain Scarlett, Fireball XL5, UFO and Stingray to name just a few!
Hereford Cathedral has seen great upheavals during its 1300 year history. In 1055, when the Welsh invaded Hereford, the cathedral was sacked and burned and the cathedral clergy killed. Later, in 1349, Hereford City was gravely hit by the Black Death and here and across the diocese, over one quarter of all clergy died of the plague.

I have brought you today up to High Rock overlooking Bridgnorth. Itâ€™s a dramatic place above the river which gives a unique view of the town. Itâ€™s a place I have come to pray from time to time sometimes alone, sometimes with others. There is a bit of a hike to get here, but the view is one of my favourites.
Hello everyone and welcome to this weeks video, I hope youâ€™ve had a good week. One of the many misunderstandings people have about the Bible is that its just a set of propositions and rules. Close examination reveals it a library of books of different literary styles.
