All are welcome to our church, either as visitors to the town or to attend services. We are a friendly congregation and have a variety of services to cater for different styles of worship.  After most services refreshments are served in Church House, providing the opportunity for everyone to socialise informally.

About Us

The church has been a place of regular worship for the people of Alcester for almost 900 years and in addition provides the focus for both Civic and community events.  The churchyard, no longer used for burials, is a calm and beautiful place to spend some quiet time.
