Dymock is situated in an area famous for spring fields of wild daffodils. Tea, coffee and homemade cake are served in church from 11:00-4:00 throughout this season for the many people who visit the area and the church during that time. More information about daffodil walks is available on the Long Distance Walkers (LDWA) Website.
Lent Lunches: Every Spring

A basic lunch is served every Tuesday for visitors and parishioners during the season of Lent. This usually coincides with the Daffodil Teas (see above). Profit from the Daffodil Teas is given to St Mary's 'Special Projects' fund to pay for new items or facilities needed in the church. Recent items include a new path in the churchyard, replacement carpet in the aisles and renovation of several embroidered items. (Collections are made at other times for selected national and international charities). (Return to top)

In the Church of England, the Priest-in-Charge, Churchwardens and PCC are jointly responsible for the church. Church officers are automatically members (Ex Officio) and other church members are proposed and elected at the Annual Parochial Church Meeting (APCM). Our PCC has two focused committees that consider their subject in detail and report back to the PCC for executive authority/decisions - Finance and Fabric and Standing Committee. In addition, we are members of the Benefice-wide 'Local Ministry Team' made up of the ordained and LAy Ministers that help the priest-in-charge run the Services and Pastoral Care. (Return to top)
