Welcome to the St John the Baptist, Bransford page.  Together with St Edburga's, Leigh it serves the Leigh and Bransford parish within the Worcestershire West Rural Team.  The vicar for the parish is the Reverend Anne Potter and her details can be found below.

The chapel in Bransford is a small, quaint Norman building which has changed little since it was built, and is lit only by candlelight. Before COVID it held a monthly traditional service of Holy Communion from the Book of Common Prayer.Opening of Church Buildings for Private Prayer. Please check the services and events page for dates of forthcoming services.

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