Benefice magazine

The magazine for the parishes of Hallow and Grimley with Holt is produced ten times a year. There is no magazine in August and January. Publication date is always the 1st day of the calendar month.

The magazine is produced in A4 format in black and white. However, for special occasions in the benefice (for example. the 150th anniversary of the consecration of Hallow Church) sponsorship of the cover, printed in colour, is often forthcoming from generous individuals. Each month the magazine contains all the details of services in the benefice as well as articles written by the editor and several regular contributors. Many organisations – including the three churches – use it to advertise events and initiatives which are being planned. During term time both Grimley and Holt School, and Hallow School, submit a regular feature, sometimes written by the children.

Many local businesses advertise their services on a regular basis. Adverts are competitively priced – starting at £80 for a 1/8 page and the printed copies are delivered by a team of volunteers to around 600 households. At just 70p per copy, it is generally agreed that it represents value for money and keeps all subscribers informed about what’s taking place in the benefice and beyond. If you would like to have a copy delivered to your home or posted to you (if you live outside the benefice) then please contact the editor via email: westworcesterbeaconmagazine@gmail.com

Anyone can contribute an article but anything intended for inclusion must reach the editor by the 15th day of the month preceding publication. Articles can be submitted via email to: westworcesterbeaconmagazine@gmail.com or hand-delivered to the editor or a churchwarden.



The editor reserves the right to determine the publication of all submitted material and the right to edit as needed for the purposes of space etc. Contributors are asked to identify themselves at the time of submission. Their identity can be withheld from publication on request following consultation between the Editor and the PCC Chairman/his or her nominee. Opinions of individual writers are their own and not necessarily those of the editor or affiliated bodies or persons. The publication is not responsible for goods and services advertised.
