Suckley church is in a group of churches called the Worcester West Rural Team and there is a service of worship here about four times a month. There is a strong feeling that this, the village’s largest building, needs to be useful to the whole community during the week as well as being our church on Sundays.

 

The church is usually open daily (with the school using it regularly too), so for the current information please look at the Suckley Church page on AChurchNearYou for up to date information on church opening and church activities.

OPENING UP THE SPACE

... FOR REFRESHMENTS

... FOR ENTERTAINMENT

The whole church and churchyard was buzzing with life when hosting the first BFG (Beer Food and Gifts) Fest of local produce. This brought the whole community, young and old, together in a way that was very much appreciated – a celebration of Suckley Produce and Talent – so the repeated request ‘same again please’ brings it back every September from now on!  Last Christmas brought more than 500 people through the door –  all the school Christmas festivities including the lighting of the Tree of Light as well as the usual Christmas services.

Before the pandemic, the new space provided a small informal social area with tea and coffee, and was  used for visitors, including school parents and those attending family graves, as a welcoming place for folk to come and meet up. Funds from trusts and other charitable bodies are being sought to install running water, toilet and kitchenette facilities so that we will be ready with modern facilities to welcome back our community, visitors and parishioners alike.

2019's BFG (Beer Food and Gifts) Festival of local produce and talents was on Saturday September 21st, and with the fantastic weather, over 800 attended to sample local brews (both alcoholic and cups of tea!), eat freshly prepared foods and nibbles, buy gifts (with Christmas in mind) and listen to musicians of all genres.
