Following the sad death of HRH Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, St Faith’s will follow the 8 days of official mourning.
With that in mind, the church will remain open on Sunday after the 10a.m. Holy Communion Service until 5p.m., so that people are able to go into church into the roped-off area and pay their respects should they wish to do so.
St Faith’s will open 2p.m. – 5p.m. on Thursdays as usual.

Parish Giving Scheme
The Parish Giving Scheme. It has been put in place (and paid for!) by the national C of E. It is a piece of smart thinking, already helping hundreds of parishes in other dioceses, and just arriving at Hereford.
It uses the Direct Debit method for giving – instead of putting an envelope occasionally on the old collection plate or making a one-off cash donation. It is all-electronic so it is safe, and gets rid of the need to count cash and pay it in, so it minimises admin. It can ‘inflation-proof’ our giving, and maximise our cash-flow. It also still allows for ‘Gift Aid’ to be used.
To find out more about the scheme read the PGS Leaflet or watch the video.
To obtain a form contact PCC Treasurer John Platts using contact form.
