Church of England Diocese of Worcester Guarlford and Madresfield with Newland

About Us


St Mary Madresfield is one of four churches forming the Benefice of Powick, Guarlford and Madresfield with Newland.

Revd Gary Crellin was instituted to the Benefice by Bishop Graham on 27th May 2018. Click 'Get in touch' tab on the left for contact details.

Services are normally held every Sunday at 11:00 am but be sure to check the back of "The Grapevine" parish magazine as times can vary. Services in the Benefice are also listed on the church noticeboard and Parish of Guarlford Website.

Sunday Worship on the first Sunday of the month now often includes a short period of discussion and a cup of tea or coffee.

There are strong links with Madresfield C of E School located opposite the church, and parents are encouraged to join their children when events are held in church.

A popular Childrens' Service for pre-school children and parents is held at 2:15 pm on occasional Mondays in term time, lasting about thirty minutes. Details can be found on the noticeboard page of the Guarlford village website.

A team of volunteers from the parish are part of the Open the Book project, and each week the team visits Madresfield C of E School to present Bible stories during assembly, often dramatizing them. These assemblies are very popular with the children, who enjoy being involved in telling the stories.

Car parking is available in Madresfield Road outside the church.

A ramp is available for wheelchairs - please ask.

There are two large print copies of the hymn book  - please ask if you need one.

There is a hearing loop and sound system, and audio devices can be linked into the system to play music for special occasions.

The church is normally locked outside service times; please contact the Rector or a churchwarden if you require access. See also 'Get in touch tab'.
