  • 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 creatively, 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.

    A renewal project at Bengeworth Church, Evesham

    Pray for Andy Smith and his family as well as the existing congregation at St Peter’s Church in Bengeworth as they look forward to this new chapter in the life of the church.

    The Revd Andy Smith has been appointed to lead a new project at St Peter’s Church in Bengeworth. Andy has served his curacy at All Saints, Worcester, one of two Resourcing Churches in the Diocese which have received funding from the national church. One of the key roles of a resourcing church is to plant new churches and revitalise others to help reach the 93% of our communities who are not currently part of any Christian community.

    Andy will be officially licensed to the church in September after which he will work with the church to develop a new vision and establish a number of services which will appeal to different people, including more informal worship.

    Andy said: “St Peter’s has a wonderful tradition of worship and I want to honour that while also starting a service which is aimed specifically at young people and families. My aim is to help a wide range of people catch Jesus’ vision for their lives and help them grow in the love of God. I’m really looking forward to moving to Evesham to start this new project!”

    Andy and his family will be moving to Evesham over the summer. He is also putting together a team of people from All Saints’ Church in Worcester to move with him to worship alongside the existing congregation.
