  • We are the Church of England in Worcestershire and Dudley. 
    Welcome to the Diocese of Worcester.

    Latest Coronavirus updates can be found here.

    During this period of lockdown, we have been producing videos twice a week for your reflection and meditation. Watch them here.

    The Diocese of Worcester is one of 41 (42 including the Diocese in Europe) that make up the Church of England. The diocese covers an area of 670 square miles and includes the County of Worcestershire, the Metropolitan Borough of Dudley, and a few parishes in northern Gloucestershire, south east Wolverhampton and Sandwell - so we are not short on variety.

    We aspire to be Kingdom People, living out the values of love, compassion, justice and freedom to bring about the kingdom of God on earth.

    The Diocese of Worcester is committed to safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults to worship and grow in Christ safely. 


    Our clergy are amazing, but COVID-19 means we need help to continue to meet the costs of their stipends.

    Please continue to support your local church as your first priority. 

    However, if in addition to this, you are able to give to the ‘Diocese of Worcester Ministry Fund’, your donation will be used to help pay for our clergy now and in the coming months. The ministry of clergy is so important at this moment for both those in the church and in our communities. They are hard at work and therefore the church receives no support from the government to pay for them. Can you help?
