St Peter, Powick, is one of four churches in the Benefice of, Powick, Guarlford and Madresfield with Newland.
Revd Sue Irwin has moved to a new appointment and, during the vacancy period, the Rural Dean, Revd David Nichol will have oversight of the parish. Enquiries can be made by phoning Powick vicarage.
The church is contained within a large churchyard extending to the north and south of the building, overlooking the flood plains of the rivers Teme and Severn. When entering and leaving the church please take care because of the unexpected steps down and up as you pass beneath the bell tower.
With parts originating from the twelfth century, the church consists of a tower at the west end, nave with north and south aisles, north and south transepts, and a chancel beyond. In recent years toilet and kitchen facilities have been provided and a gathering space created at the rear of the church which has very fine oak pews, a decorated chancel and a number of beautiful stained glass windows.
There is now a Garden of Remembrance and a York stone path has been laid from the lych-gate to the church door. Parking is available in the long drive up to the church.
