The Maund Group of Parishes
Taking our name from the lands of the ancient kings of the Magonsaete tribe, we are seven friendly and welcoming church communities set between Hereford and Leominster. Together we are exploring God's story in our everyday lives and faith. We seek to serve and enrich the life of our villages and communicate God's love for all people.
We are committed to the care and protection of children, young people and vulnerable adults involved in Church activities. Details of our Safeguarding Policy can be viewed under our individual parish pages on this site.
Churches in Benefice
Located near Amberley Court in the parish of Marden, we meet once a month on the fourth Sunday of the month for worship. With views over fields of Hereford cattle, we invite you to rest a while and meet God in creation and fellowship.

Welcome to St Michael and All Angels' Church, Bodenham, living out our faith in the heart of Herefordshire countryside. A warm welcome awaits you.

The parish of Bodenham is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Hereford’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs.

If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
