The Church of St. Michael and All Angels
The ancient Parish Church was founded in 946 by King Eadred. In 1146 King Stephen gave the church to the Bishop of Lichfield and Coventry. The present building replaced a Norman structure and was commissioned by Henry of London Dean of Penkridge and Archbishop of Dublin. Major restorations were carried out in the fifteenth and nineteenth centuries.
The church was re-ordered in 1999 in preparation for the twenty-first century, and is once again playing a full part in the community life of this small country town. Sunday Services are 8am Holy Communion; 9am Roman Catholic Mass; 10.30am Parish Communion except on the third Sunday when there is a Family Service, and 6.30pm Evening Worship except on the fourth Sunday when we begin at 5.30pm.
The Church is open to visitors on Wednesday and Saturday Mornings and on Sundays. Details of the Church Family activities can be obtained by ringing 01785 712378. Click here for Penkridge Deanery Web Site
