Church of England Diocese of Worcester Stourport-on-Severn, St Michael & All Angels

About Us

We are a family orientated, friendly congregation in a modern, distinctive building waiting for your visit.

You can also find us on Facebook at "St Michael and All Angels Church - Stourport".

The principal service used is the Eucharist, making use of modern (Common Worship) material. Worship is inclusive, accessible, concise, and children are always welcome. On some Sundays, when a priest is unavailable, the service will be a Service of the Word.

Provision is made for children during worship.

There is good disabled access and an induction loop system.

We try to allow for the whole Church Family to worship together with an age-range of one year to 90+. Some members are recent arrivals, others have been worshipping here for many years.

Home Communion is available to those who are unable to get to church.

Our church works together, whenever possible, with our Benefice Partners at All Saints, Wilden and on occasions have a combined benifice service in one church only. Such an occasion is Palm Sunday when we also have a procession along the route of the old Stourport railway branch line from one church to the other for a combined service for both parishes.
