St Edmund’s is the parish church in the market town of Shipston on Stour.
We offer space to worship, to explore the Christian faith and to ask questions. Services are relaxed and friendly, and there is a children’s area for young children. Our main service is on Sundays at 10am and there is a quiet midweek Eucharist on Wednesdays at 10.
Both services have refreshments afterwards and a chance to meet people and chat. The church has loos, disabled access and a hearing loop.
As the parish church, St Edmund’s has strong links with the community and provides space for civic celebrations and services. We work closely with our sister churches from other denominations in the town.
St Edmund’s is an Inclusive Church which celebrates and affirms every person and does not discriminate.
We will continue to challenge the church where it continues to discriminate against people on grounds of disability, economic power, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, learning disability, mental health, neurodiversity, or sexuality.
We believe in a Church which welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ; which is scripturally faithful; which seeks to proclaim the Gospel afresh for each generation; and which, in the power of the Holy Spirit, allows all people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Jesus Christ.
