Cradley Church, Herefordshire

Welcome
Cradley Church

Welcome to the parish church of St. James the Great in Cradley. The Village of Cradley is blessed with a splendid historic church situated in the heart of the village surounded by beautiful rural English countryside. Black and white timbered cottages vie with up to the minute eco friendly housing. The history of the church is a fascinating one, however, the life of the church today is focused on forward looking worship and remaining relevant to the village population of today ... while the active bell-ringing group ensure that the village is still able to enjoy the sound of the church bells. The church is open from 8.00 am – 5.00 pm in the winter and 8.00 am – 7.00 pm during the summer.

Why not support the work of the church and its maintenance by joining the Cradley Church 100 Club? Joining forms are now available.

During the first half of 2019 a significant programme of repairs was carried out at Cradley church, part of which was funded from a grant from the National churches Trust.

A MESSAGE FROM THE RECTOR (updated 24 September 2021)

Our church remains open for private prayer during the week and Sunday services have now resumed.

Those attending our churches are encouraged to take every care for the well-being of others, as well as of themselves. Although no longer mandatory, we encourage continued social distancing and wearing of face coverings in church, especially when moving about the building, and when singing.

There is also a provision for live-streamed services, on Sundays and on Wednesday evenings, for those who wish to come together 'virtually' online and by telephone. Please check the ‘services’ page of this website for more details.

Your Rector,
Robert Ward
