About Us

Welcome to St Clement’s Church, Worcester, one of the three oldest parishes in the city of Worcester established circa 10th Century and moved to it's present site in 1823 by Order of Kinng George the Fourth. See photograph of the Proclamation  in the Gallery

It seems impossible now to date exactly the foundation of St Clement’s  Church, but the parish is nearly 1000 years old. It ‘s origin was in pre Conquest days when times were difficult, largely because of the Danish Raids

The original church was built of timber and stone In part of Worcester which had been important for centuries, for it was near the ancient ford across the river which gave access to Wales. When the river is very low it is possible to see where the ford may have been between the bottom of Tybridge Street and the bottom of Dolday

The present building replaced several St Clement churches which stood on the east bank of the river just within the city walls and the original on the bridge was one of the earliest in Worcester. The Right of Presentation  of appointment of a Rector was in  the hands of the people. From the Reformation, it passed to the Dean and Chapter, where it remains today

We are a lively and friendly church, with a range of services, concerts and events

We look forward to welcoming you to St Clement’s in the future!
