Lingen: St Michael & All Angels
We welcome you to this remote corner of rural Herefordshire, where the history of the Marches is all around. Our church services are usually on the first and third Sundays of the month. In other weeks, our congregation is welcomed two miles away at our sister church, All Saints', Kinsham, or at St Andrew's, Presteigne, the principal church of the group. Please have a look at our other pages and photos, and feel free to get in touch with any queries.
St Andrew's Presteigne
St Andrew’s is the Church of England Parish Church for Presteigne. There has been a church building on the site for over 1000 years. This ancient place of prayer is open to visitors as much as possible. The benefice or group of churches also includes St Michael's, Discoed; All Saints', Kinsham; St Michael and All Angels', Knill; and St Michael and All Angels', Lingen.
Presteigne and Discoed are in Powys, Wales; Kinsham, Knill and Lingen are in England, but all our churches belong to the Church of England Diocese of Hereford.
Rector: The Revd Prebendary Stephen Hollinghurst
Associate Minister: The Reverend Debbie Venables
Our main Sunday morning service is generally at 11 am.
The style of that service varies from short informal family services to Holy Communion from Common Worship or the Book of Common Prayer. Visitors are always welcome. Covid-19 restrictions have eased, but we will continue to follow guidance from the UK and Welsh governments and the Church of England on mask-wearing, social distancing, etc. Details of all services can be found on notice boards in the church porch and by the Broad Street gate; and in the Parish Magazine.
We are an inclusive church and extend a welcome to everyone in the name of Jesus Christ.
