Cleeton St Mary: St Mary
It is with the greatest regret that we have had to close the church during the current outbreak of Covid-19, but this is to contribute to the restriction of infection and is for everybody’s benefit. The churches remain a symbol of God’s presence with us in all our communities and this time when they are closed may serve as a reminder of His caring presence with us in all places at all times, including in our homes and especially in times of doubt and fear.
High up on the side of the Titterstone Clee Hill is the village of Cleeton St Mary. The Victorian church, along with the vicarage, almshouses and school, were all built by Revd George Pardoe of Bitterley, to serve the mining and smallholding communities of this side of the hill. The church is still active, with two services a month, and often visited by passing hill-walkers, who know there are refreshments available inside! A warm and friendly welcome awaits you if you would like to join us for worship.
