Birtsmorton Church is an inconspicuous looking medieval Church, set back from a quiet country road in glorious countryside, close to the Malvern Hills. Our more well known neighbour, Birtsmorton Court, is famed for its beautiful gardens and as a wedding venue, which means we are lucky enough to be asked to carry out 30 to 40 weddings or wedding blessings a year, and to be able to welcome wedding couples and their families into our congregation. In addition, the Church has some treasures within in the form of some medieval stained glass fragments, two fascinating tombs and a wonderful modern stained glass window depicting one of our patron saints.
