St Milburgas is in the centre of the village on a site where there has been a church since the 8th century. It is normally open in daylight hours

There are a variety of Sunday services:

First Sunday - Evensong, a Book of Common Prayer service at 6:30pm

Second Sunday - Holy Communion at 10:00am with coffee after

Third Sunday - Evensong with short Holy Communion at 6:30pm

Fourth Sunday - Tea Time Church at 3:30pm, a short and relaxed service especially for families, followed by tea and cake

Fifth Sunday - this is a Communion Service at 10:00am in one of the churches of our group

Details of these services are on the lych gate notice board, on the church drive notice board, in the West of the Clee magazine and also on this website under Services. Everyone is welcome


Family Baptisms and weddings are very special occasions in this bright and spacious church. There is flexible seating for as many as 140 people. It has an excellent acoustic for music and drama as well as wheelchair access, a small kitchen and toilet. Please contact the group secretary, Grace Johnson, on 07493 247*** if you would like to use the church

Our vicar is the Reverend Justin Parker. He can be contacted through our group secretary, Grace Johnson, on the above number. She will be happy to help with information on baptisms, weddings and funerals


Music in the church is an important part of our services and of village life. We form a special choir for Easter, Harvest and Christmas services and we are always keen to recruit new singers. Sometimes we play other instruments as an alternative to the organ. If you would like to sing or play please contact Sue Cornah on 823***

A strong band of bell ringers practices on Tuesday evenings from 7:30pm to 9:00pm. Visitors are very welcome and anyone interested in seeing the bells or learning to ring them should contact Henry Lewis on 823***

We have a rota for putting flowers in the church and cleaning. This job only comes up once a year and is not onerous as our church is not large! For special occasions we decorate the church together. Occasionally we have churchyard working parties usually with a ploughman's lunch attached. We are always very glad of help. Please contact Bev Harris (flowers) 8237*** or Chris Warman (churchyard) 823** for details

The parish magazine, West of the Clee, is published monthly with details of services, forthcoming events and activities, articles of local interest and local advertisements. It costs £6.00 for a year. If you would like to have it delivered to you, or if you would like to help with it's editing please contact Sue Rees on 823664

Groups for prayer and study are formed from time to time and particularly during Lent every year. For information contact Elizabeth on 823***

We support the Ludlow Food Bank, which gives emergency parcels in cases of particular need. There is a basket for contributions and details of suitable items inside the church

If you need more information, help or advice, please speak to our Churchwarden, Elizabeth Beaumont, 823***
