Stretton-on-Fosse

Welcome to our village

 

 

Although the current building dates from 1841, Stretton's church history dates back to Saxon times.

The church is well supported by the community and holds a service every Sunday,

embracing a wide spectrum of Christian worship.

The church in Stretton has been linked with Ilmington for many years

and more recently has become part of a benefice composed of six churches:

Stretton-on-Fosse, Whitchurch, Preston-on-Stour, Ilmington, Tredington and Darlingscott.

 

For a pastoral visit, Holy Communion at home or if we can help in other ways

please contact our Associate Minister Stephen Fletcher - 07714 171143

or Simon Bayliss (church warden) - 01608 662712.

 

We welcome to every service those of all faiths and of none.
