We are the Church of England in Worcestershire and Dudley.  
Welcome to the Diocese of Worcester.

The Diocese of Worcester is one of 41 (42 including the Diocese in Europe) that make up the Church of England. The diocese covers an area of 670 square miles and includes the County of Worcestershire, the Metropolitan Borough of Dudley, and a few parishes in northern Gloucestershire, south east Wolverhampton and Sandwell - so we are not short on variety.

Our diocesan vision is to grow as Kingdom People, sharing the good news of Jesus’ love in Worcestershire and Dudley.  

As the body of Christ, God’s Kingdom People, we join together to worship God, make disciples, share hope, and transform communities as we live out values of love, compassion, justice and freedom.

The Diocese of Worcester is committed to safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults to worship and grow in Christ safely.

Lambeth Conference

Loving God, look with mercy on your world and the many challenges we face - through environmental crisis, poverty and hurt. Make your church a sign of hope that we may bring your peace and justice to the world. And bound together by your love, may the churches of the Anglican Communion show people Jesus. Please pray for all those who attended, that it was a productive and collaborative meeting.
