The Dean of Hereford Cathedral, The Very Revd Michael Tavinor, will preach at this year’s Guinea Service at St John The Baptist Church, in Letton, at 6.30pm on Monday 29 October, in a tradition which dates back to the early 1800s.
In the last will and testament of parishioner Elizabeth Freeman, dated 1810, she left provision to ‘pay The Minister of Letton Church, one Guinea for a sermon in The Church on the 29th October yearly, forever.’

The Parochial Church Council of St Mary, Staunton-on-Wye adopted the following resolution at its meeting on 14 May 2018.
“We believe in Inclusive Church – church which does not discriminate, on any level, on grounds of economic power, gender, mental health, physical ability, ethnicity, race, marital status or sexuality. We believe in Church which welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ; which chooses to interpret scripture inclusively; which seeks to proclaim the Gospel afresh for each generation; and which, in the power of the Holy Spirit, allows all people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Jesus Christ.”
