  • 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.

    Our clergy are amazing, but COVID-19 means we need help to continue to meet the costs of their stipends.

    Donate

    Please continue to support your local church as your first priority. 

    However, if in addition to this, you are able to give to the ‘Diocese of Worcester Ministry Fund’, your donation will be used to help pay for our clergy now and in the coming months.
