St John's Church, Ludlow

Welcome to St John's Church. We are the parish church for the eastern half of Ludlow. We hold services every Sunday, normally at 10 am and also midweek on a Wednesday at 11.30 am. During special times of year such as Christmas we hold additional services as well. Our programme is displayed on the notice board on the gate into the church yard.

Everyone is welcome at our services, whether you are a member of the Church of England or not. Children are welcome to all our services. We are always available for weddings and funerals, and we love including baptisms or christenings in our morning services.

We normally meet after each service for a get-together with tea, coffee and biscuits and we also hold an informal tea and toast session on Wednesday mornings from 9.30 am.

If you have any prayer requests please either email us or write the request on a piece of paper and post it in the letter box inside the church yard gate.
