Alcester Minster Churches

Worshipping God, making new disciples and transforming communities

Welcome to the Alcester Minster Website

Lent is here, and Easter is soon!


Lent is about much more that giving things up!  It's about re-aligning ourselves to God's way of living.


This has different aspects: attending to our relationship with Jesus Christ, in whom we know God; aiming to please God in thoughts, words and actions; loving all God's creatures, and looking after creation.


We're all becoming increasingly aware of the damage plastics are doing to the environment.  Here's one idea you could do during Lent - aim for a plastic-free Lent using this!  Looking after God's world is one way we show love and respect for God.


On 17 March, we've got a Soup lunch raising money for charity followed by a quiet prayer afternoon at Great Alne Church - please join us if you can - details of Lent activities here.


Services from Maundy Thursday to Easter Day are listed on the chart to the right.


We have begun advertising for a Full-time Children and Families Worker in the Alcester Minster.  Click here for details.

God bless,



Rev Adrian Guthrie

What is Alcester Minster?

It is a way of grouping together five Church of England parishes, comprising eight churches in and around Alcester with a single Ministry Team and a commitment to work together.  Many of our activities are therefore Minster-wide, designed for all who attend the churches and all who live in the parishes.  Some activities are specific to a particular parish.


The parishes are:

Alcester (St Nicholas)

Arrow and Weethley (Holy Trinity and St James)

Coughton and Sambourne (St Peter and Sambourne)

Haselor (St Mary and All Saints)

Kinwarton and Great Alne (St Mary the Virgin

and St Mary Magdalen)


Information about services in each Minster Church is available from the drop down menu on the Churches tab and also at this site too:  http://www.achurchnearyou.com/
