St's Andrew, John and Peter
Netherton, Dudley Wood, Darby End
Our churches are warm and welcoming, which seek to walk alongside those who are alone, support those who are hurting, and help those who have fallen down to get back on their feet, by sharing the love of Jesus in Darby End, Dudley Wood and Netherton
A beautiful grade II listed Church, serving the people of Netherton since 1830. We can accomodate over 600 people and receive Holy Communion 3 out of 4 weeks of the month.
Originally planted from St Andrews, a smaller church with a warm homely feel. We have a thriving junior church which meets every week in the hall, and receive Holy Communion 3 times a month.
Beautifully situated on the canal and Bumble Hole Nature Reserve, we are a small church who follow a more Catholic tradition. Our interior is relaxed and we have a hall which is utilised throughout the week.
If you are looking to hire a room for a birthday party, a meeting, a club or regular community group, then we have what you need. With fully fitted kitchens, ample space and car parking on site, drop us a note.
In our churches, and as part of the Diocese of Worcester, we are committed to safeguarding children, young people and vulnerable adults to worship and grow in Christ safely. We take this commitment very seriously and believe that making our churches safe for all is everyone’s responsibility. To enable this to happen we follow the House of Bihsops Guidance and Policies, and have our own policies in place.
If you or someone you know feels unsafe you first priority should be to call the police.

If you are a child, Childline has a phone number to call: 0800 1111
