You may like to join us in lively worship and celebration as well as for quieter moments of prayer and contemplation.

If you’re visiting Tardebigge, you may simply want to enjoy the elegant beauty of St Bartholomew’s church and its peaceful surroundings.

The churchyard has wonderful across the countryside, overlooking the Worcester & Birmingham Canal and towards the Clent, Abberley and Malvern Hills on the horizon.

There are quiet places to sit and contemplate the beauty of nature, admire spectacular sunsets or pause for rest on your hike along the Monarch’s Way long-distance footpath.

St Bartholomew’s

If you are just visiting, take your time enjoying the wonderful views but don’t miss the opportunity to look around inside St Bartholomew’s.

It’s one of only four surviving rural Georgian churches in the country.

The area around St Bartholomew’s has a rich history.

It was associated first with Bordesley Abbey, and later the estate at Hewell Grange – formerly home to the Windsor family.

The close involvement of the Windsor family, and before them the Earls of Plymouth, can be seen in many places in the church, the grounds and around the parish.
