Church of England Diocese of Worcester Crown East, Rushwick

St Thomas

Welcome to St Thomas', Crown East and Rushwick.  St Thomas's is the parish Church for Crown East and Rushwick within the Worcestershire West Rural Team.  Our vicar is the Reverend Anne Potter and her details can be found below.

The present Church of St Thomas was originally built in the 1840’s as a private chapel by the Bramwell family beside Crown East Court. It was moved and rebuilt on the main road to Bromyard where it still stands and was licensed for public worship on the 26th October 1876 by the Bishop of Worcester.

Although the churches at Leigh, Alfrick and Suckley are now open for private prayer, please note that St Thomas' will not be opening at this time.
