Our regular Holy Communion Service in Stow takes place at 11.00 each Sunday. For the time being, St Edward's Church is closed for essential maintenance, so we hold the service in the Church Room nearby in Church Walk. Directions: When facing the South (main) Door of St Edward's Church, turn left and follow the path round to the left and down the steps where the entrance to the Church Room can be found.
Coffee is served from 10.15 am. Unfortunately, we are unable to live-stream services from this location. Check the Benefice website at for further details.
