Welcome to the Woodbridge Group of Churches...
The Woodbridge Group benefice is a group of six rural churches located in the beautiful countryside around Malmesbury, in Wiltshire.
We are part of the North Wiltshire Deanery which in turn is part of the Diocese of Bristol. The six churches, based in the villages of Brinkworth, Dauntsey, Garsdon, Great Somerford, Lea and Little Somerford offer a variety of worship styles from traditional Book of Common Prayer through to very informal contemporary praise and outdoor church.

Join us for Morning Prayer - Monday to Saturday
We lead a virtual service of Morning Prayer at 9am with Malmesbury Abbey via this Facebook Group from Monday to Saturday
For Morning Prayer you can simply follow the video posted in the group, or you can also follow the texts we’ll be using
EITHER: visit the Church of England’s website
and under ‘More options’ select:
· Type of Service: Contemporary (Common Worship)
· Time of Day: Morning Prayer
· Date: today’s date
This option is free to use
OR: download the app ‘Daily Prayer: from the CofE’ from the AppStore
or Play Store – this requires a subscription of £1.49 per year.
Either of these will present you with the text of the service. We don’t use all the text, which is designed for a full-on cathedral experience, so we’ll miss some bits out, but we’ll aim to tell you where we are jumping ahead to! There are some texts to join in with, a Psalm (or a portion of one), a couple of Bible readings, and most importantly time for prayer. We will have some pre-prepared prayers, but we will also give you some times of silence and may prompt you to pray your own prayers against particular topics. You could also type prayer requests in as comments during this time, but be aware that these will be publicly visible so ensure that any individuals named are OK with this before you do so.
