Celebration Praise

The service on the first Sunday in the month is called ‘Celebration Praise’. This is a non-Eucharistic service and less formal than our usual offerings. We hope it will appeal to children and those with young families.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Celebrating 500 years!

Although the church is much older than that, the Stoneywell chapel on the south side of the church was built as a private chapel by Bishop John Stoneywell in 1520. He was buried there in 1553.

We are celebrating this anniversary event on the weekend of 27th and 28th March 2020.

On Friday 27th we will be holding one of our very popular history talks by John Shand. This is a fund-raising event and for £7.50 you will get an evening recalling fascinating events and stories with canapés and a glass of wine included.

On Saturday 28th March, Michael, Bishop of Lichfield, will lead a walk from the hamlet of Stonywell where John Stoneywell was born in about 1475, to Longdon church for a service of celebration and reconciliation. Leaders of other churches in the area and people from Pershore Abbey where John was Abbott until the dissolution are to be invited. We hope to see you there. Afternoon tea will be available following the service.
