St Mark in the Cherry Orchard Church, Orchard Street, off Bath Road, Worcester WR5 3DW

St Mark's is a friendly church that is at its best when it is 'dressed' for Christmas, Easter or a special occasion such as a wedding.  Everyone is always made most welcome and if you do not want to take part in any services, you can sit quietly at the back of church and, afterwards, you can enjoy a cuppa with some of the congregation.
