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

Our Diocesan Mailing e-newsletter is published fortnightly. It's packed with resources, information, news and events to support those involved in church in the Diocese of Worcester.


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.
