Welcome to the Home Page of Teme Valley South Parish in West Worcestershire

  • This site has been set up to provide information about the churches and villages of Eastham, Hanley Childe, Hanley William, Kyre, Rochford, Stanford and  Stoke Bliss. We hope you find what you are looking for. Please do use the "Contact Us" page to get in touch.Set in a glorious part of the country in the west of Worcestershire with churches that have been here for hundreds of years, we are a Christian presence in the village communities.

    With the easing of lock down and the recent announcement by the Government, that places of worship will be allowed to open for Private Prayer. In Teme Valley South, we intend to open most of our churches on one day per week from Tuesday 7th July as follows:

    • Tuesdays - Eastham 9am to 6pm;
    • Wednesdays - Rochford 9am to 6pm;
    • Thursdays - Stanford 9am to 6pm;
    • Fridays - Stoke Bliss 10am to 4pm and Kyre 2.30pm to 5pm;
    • Saturdays - Hanley William 9am to 4pm;
    • Sundays - Rochford 9am to 6pm 

    Private Prayer will require social distancing and use of hand sanitisers arriving and leaving the church.

    Unfortunately at the current time (July 2020), there is no decision about when we will be be able to fully open our churches. We have been asked to look at conducting public worship - we hope to do this in August with appropriate safeguarding in place. We will advise you here when we have undertaken the appropriate risk assessments and planning. In the meantime, we are delivering our services electronically each Sunday. The services are on Our Services in a time of Crisis page (click here to go to that page and see what is available).

    Daily regular prayer continues and people who can are joining in via the internet. This link takes you to our Covid 19 page which we will keep updated.
