The Festivals that make up our Church's year
The Church of St John the Evangelist, Shobdon, Herefordshire
part of the Arrowvale Group of Parishes

Welcome to the Shobdon Festival web site. Here we propose to look at the festivals that make up the church year.

Church Festivals We've all heard of Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter and Harvest but what about the others that are mentioned during other services throughout the year. Over time we plan to expand on these and provide a reference which, we hope, will will enable you to extend your knowledge of the church and its history.

A list of the important dates can be found here and we plan to explore these in more detail so remember to come back regularly to check!

Shobdon Church The Church is part of the Arrowvale Group of Parishes and you can find out about services and activities in all the churches in our group on the Arrowvale website.

To find out more about the Church of St John the Evangelist at Shobdon visit the Shobdon Church Preservation Trust web site (SCPT). The SCPT works to preserve the fabric of the church and education of the public in the history and architecture of the building.

Shobdon Food Festival This is no longer a church event and this year will be held at Shobdon Airfield on the 29th and 30th June. The church will be open during the event and people will be on hand to tell you more about it.

If you haven't seen the recent refurbishment then do call in as it's looking splendid. We will also be at the Food Festival in the marquee with the School so call in there and say hello. Visit the Food Festival website for more information.
