Welcome to Saint Andrew's Church
St Andrew's is the parish church for the beautiful village of Ombersley. We are part of a Benefice of Seven parishes with Doverdale, Hartlebury, Elmley Lovett, Elmbridge, Hampton Lovett and Rushock, which lies within the Worcester Diocese of the Church of England.
How to find us : From the south: Take the Ombersley exit from the A449 Worcester to Kidderminster road. The church is on the left just before the village roundabout (post code: WR9 0EP). From the north take the slip road to Ombersley and turn right to go under the A449, and then left at the village roundabout. The spire is easily visible for miles around. Access is through the Lychgate - there is plenty of parking on the gravel drive around the church.
Currently Open Every Day from 10am til dusk or 6pm
There is no service at St Andrew's this Sunday but there is, instead, a
Rogation Service at Bell's Farm, Hartlebury
Sunday 22nd May at 2.30pm
A wonderful opportunity to take a walk in the countryside (on easy paths!) and enjoy an open-air service of Readings, Prayers and Songs, focusing on the joys (and challenges) of our natural world. Do come!
Bells Farm is concerned to work with and share information about the natural environment AND they offer lovely refreshments! The weather is set reasonably fair (shouldn't rain and not too hot) and the whole walk is only just over 1/3 of a mile in length on reasonably level paths and tracks with the opportunity to pause and perch on some staging steps about half way round.
Families are very welcome but, with apologies, not dogs, because of food production.
The Farm has ample parking, a cafe, (and toilets) and a farm shop.
It's address is Bell's Farm Shop, Chadwick Bank, Stourport Road, DY13 9SA
Turn off of A449 at the Mitre Oak roundabout and the Farm is about 3/4 mile on the left.
Sunday 22nd and 29th May - No Services at St Andrew's
The weekly practice of saying Morning Prayer in one of our churches will continue on Wednesday mornings at 9.15.
Our YouTube Channel will feature occasional services and special events, along with filmed funeral, wedding or baptism services (with permission)

A new scam has been reported in which a person receives a text saying they need to book a vaccination appointment via a link, which takes them to a fake NHS form asking for bank details to prove their identity.
