Welcome to the Church of England in Dudley, West Midlands. We are part of the Diocese of Worcester, local churches which gather to worship God, hear the Bible, pray, and celebrate being Christians.
If you'd like to come along to any of our services, events, or you simply require information to organise a baptism, wedding or funeral, use the tabs above and contact us at the Parish Office.
We look forward to meeting you!

Corona virus updates
Physical Church alongside Virtual Church
We are gradually opening our churches for worship whilst continuing with our weekly Zoom services. In September we will move the Zoom service to 11am. This will enable a minister to lead a 9.30am service and then another service at 11am.
We held a service in St Francis' recently and are holding our first reopening service at St Augustine's on Sunday 16th August at 11am. Services will be limited to 20 people, and there can be no singing. Government guidelines continue to evolve. The latest is that everyone must wear a mask in church.
St John's are open for private prayer on Thursday mornings, which will sometimes include a short act of worship together. St Francis' Retreat Café provisionally plans to open up in September. Further details about opening up to follow.
You can also find Dudley Churches Team Ministry on Youtube for our latest videos to encourage our faith at this time. Continue to look for opportunities to reach out to those around you. If any of you require any support yourself, please do contact us. And please let us know if you or anyone you have had physical contact with has contracted the virus or is displaying symptoms.
Any of the clergy can be contacted for further information or for the code for the Zoom service. We would love you to join us!
Let’s hold one another, and our communities, in our ongoing thoughts and prayers.
Revd’s Hugh, Rachel and Sue
