Storridge Church, Herefordshire

Storridge Church

Welcome to the parish church of St. John the Evangelist in Storridge.

Storridge is a rural Herefordshire parish with a beautiful parish church designed by Frederick Preedy. The congregation share traditional Christian worship and values, reaching out into the wider community with a hand of friendship and welcome to all who would wish to join them.

The history of the church is a fascinating one and the stained glass is a fine example of Preedy's work with an unusually wide third light.

The church hosts an annual programme of literary (and other) events open to all.

The parish church of St. John the Evangelist in Storridge is situated close to the junction of the B4219 with the A4103 Hereford to Worcester road. If you are planning a visit to the church, either to attend a service or an event, you can find directions and other information for visitors on this website.

A MESSAGE FROM THE RECTOR (updated 24 April 2021)

Services from our neighbouring church in Cradley continue to be live-streamed (on most Sundays) for those who wish to come together 'virtually' online and by telephone (for those choosing to come to church there remains the requirement to wear face coverings in church and observe social distancing). Please check the ‘services’ page of this website for more details.

Fundraising has been hit hard this past year, as have other crucial sources of income, including summer weddings. Since it's difficult at present to plan events of any kind which involve people coming together, could we ask you to consider making a special donation to your local parish church or even setting up a regular payment via the Parish Giving Scheme?

Thank you for your consideration.

Your Rector,
Robert Ward
