Welcome to the St Kenelm's, Clifton upon Teme page. St Kenelm's is within the Worcestershire West Rural Team. Our vicar is Revd Canon David Sherwin and his details can be found below.
St Kenelm's is an ancient church in Clifton Parish where we look to uphold traditional values whilst appreciating that services need to change to accommodate new styles of worship.
A look at the services on offer throughout the year illustrates what we hope is a good cross section of services.
Being a rural church we realise the importance of marking the farming seasons and also celebrate, along with Harvest Festival, Rogationtide and Plough Sunday.
The family is very important to the church. Children are welcome to all services and there are always activity sheets for children as well as a special communion book. However, some services are more 'child-friendly' and relaxed than others. A monthly lay led Family Service is held on the 3rd Sunday of each month and has a more easy going approach.
The parish of Clifton-upon-Teme is committed to the safeguarding of children, young people and adults. We follow the House of Bishops guidance and policies and have our own Parish Safeguarding Officer(s), PSOs. The Diocese of Worcester’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA) who advise our PSOs. If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.
