St Peter, Cookley
St Peter's Cookley is truly a village church. Built in 1849 it is a place where people from the village can meet, take time to reflect and pray in the peace of the church and to celebrate life events. All are welcome to our services and we are keen to get to know you and for you to share in our hospitality. We have opportunities for worship, prayer and learning about the Good News of Jesus Christ as well as our work in the community with projects such as 'Chill and Chat', an opportunity to come together as a community in Cookley.
St Mary's is the historic Parish Church of Kidderminster and, as such, is often the place where Civic Services are held. We are a congregation of about 50 people who worship together on Sunday and seek to live out our Christian faith through the week. We welcome anyone who wants to join us for worship or our other activities, or to step into the beauty of the building - a place where God's presence can bring calm and stillness in the hectic rush of life.
Our Sunday worship is traditional with a robed choir and hymns accompanied by the organ. Families are welcome and there are some resources for children during the Service.
During the summer months we welcome visitors on Thursdays and Fridays between 11.00 and 14.00, coming to explore this building full of history where prayer has been offered for centuries. We will announce when this begins again in 2024.
We are part of a Local Ecumenical Partnership with Trinity Methodist and a member of Churches Together in Kidderminster supporting the Foodbank and Street Pastors in the town.
Welcome to St Barnabas, Franche, Kidderminster.

St Peter, Upper Arley
St Peter’s, Upper Arley; part of the church dates to the 1100s, with a Victorian extended chancel, vestry and porch. A new kitchen and toilet extension were added in 2005/6. The building is grade 2 listed and seats around 180 -200 people. It is built of local stone and has many attractive features; the church is open every day.
There is a bell tower with six bells which are rung at weddings with the help of ringers from Alveley and once a month before morning service by ringers from other churches in the Team and the surrounding area. Bell ringing practice night - Tuesday evenings at 7.3op.m.
We offer weekly services on Sunday morning at 11:00 and extend a warm welcome to all.
The Kidderminster Ismere Parochial Church Council took the decision in November 2021 following discussions with the congregation that the process of closure for St Oswald's should begin. Due to the condition of the building we no longer meet at St Oswald's church and groups are no longer able to meet there either.
The Christian presence in Broadwaters has not left however and the congregation is still very much alive and well, meeting at our other parish churches. If you would like to enquire about the Christian faith or a Wedding, Christening or Funeral then contact the Parish Administrator on 01562 851744 or [email protected]
