I'm New to Edge

I'm New to Edge

Edge, also known as The Edge to many people, is a small village with a long history situated on the Eastern slope of the Cotswold Scarp.

Newcomers to the village often wonder why the church is not nestled in among the villages houses.  This is because it was not built until quite recently in Church History (mid nineteenth-century) where the creation of new roads (closely followed by omnibuses) changed the shape of village life.  Our church building, although built in a fork between a main road in a country lane, is blessed with a lovely peaceful setting. The view from our churchyard is amazing, with views of the Brecon Beacons, Gloucester and most of the southern Vale of Severn.  Our services are friendly and you will not be expected to dress  formally.  We have a small kitchen at the back of the church, so we can enjoy coffee together after services. 

 We have prayer boards in each of our churches with post-its and pens, if you would like us to mention anything special.  

Everything is confidential.
