Parish News Magazine

The aim of The Parish News is to promote the Christian message and to serve the two communities. It is there to inform and support, to educate, entertain and to appeal to a wide readership of all ages through word and pictures.

The first part of the magazine gives details of our Church services as well as notices of various social events and the pastoral support which is available.

The second part reflects the diverse interests of the villages: news and details of forthcoming events from the Parish Councils, the many Societies & Clubs, the local schools as well as articles of general interest such as the historical background to so many aspects of Bishop’s Waltham. It may be that you have a contribution that would be of interest (letters are always welcome) – if so we would love to hear from you.

Please contact the Editor Tony Hunt on 01489 893372 or at and copy to the Parish Office at

The magazine is well supported by its advertisers and many readers use this section, together with the full list of ‘Useful Numbers’ printed near the back cover, as a local Trades Directory.

It is published monthly (except September) at a price of just £1 or £10 for an annual subscription.
