OUR WORSHIP

 

On most Sundays we offer worship in all of our twelve parishes. Most parishes have a common service time each week but some parishes vary the service times from week to week, so please check the times detailed on this website if you are planning to attend one of our services. Occasionally (usually, but not exclusively, on the fifth Sunday in a month), we hold joint services where people from a number of parishes in our Deanery meet together to worship.

 

We offer a range of services in our churches, some using formats from the Book of Common Prayer and others based on the more recent Common Worship formats. Wherever you chose to join us, and whatever service is being held when you attend, you can be assured of a warm welcome.

 

 

 

OUR DEANERY

 

Wrockwardine Deanery is a grouping of twelve parishes (thirteen churches) set amongst beautiful countryside in rural Shropshire nestled between Shrewsbury to the west and Telford to the east. Much of the southern and western boundaries of the Deanery follow the River Severn. The Deanery extends through the North Shropshire Plain with the landmark 1,335 ft. hill, the Wrekin, located close to the eastern edge of the Deanery.

 

The Deanery takes its name from the parish of Wrockwardine, near to the market town of Wellington. The Deanery includes large centres of population in the villages of Admaston and Bratton on the north western edge of Telford with the remainder of the Deanery consisting of smaller communities in villages and hamlets.

 

The twelve parishes are Buildwas, Eaton Constantine with Wroxeter, High Ercall, Leighton-under-Wrekin, Longdon-on-Tern, Rodington, Rowton, Uffington, Uppington, Upton Magna, Withington and Wrockwardine.

We have two Messy Churches meeting around the Deanery - one with a rotation around the villages of High Ercall, Rodington, Longdon upon Tern, Rowton and Ellerdine, and a second around the villages of Uffington, Upton Magna and Withington.

 

Messy Churches will take place at

We hold family fun events around Lent and Pentecost. Local Schools participate in our Easter Experience event.  During the first week of August we hold a family orientated Holiday Club. .

 

We have two Open the Book teams in the deanery serving the primary schools of Bratton, High Ercall and Upton Magna. There is a team from outside the deanery who provide Open the Book into Crudgington school. We hope to soon have a team available to provide Open the Book into Buildwas school.

 

We hold a monthly Youth Café in the Deanery. This meets on the second Friday in the month between 7pm and 8.30pm. We play games, have craft activities, support OCC shoebox appeal and sometimes we learn a new skill. We have our café time of hot chocolate and pizzas, chip butties or other delights and finish with a time of worship and reflection. The next Youth Café is at Upton Magna Village Hall on Friday 8th March.

NEWS

National Lottery support enables St Lucia’s to team up with the RNIB.

 

St Lucia’s Church, Upton Magna, Shropshire is looking forward to 2019 having received £204,300 from the Heritage Lottery Fund to begin its urgent repairs in the Spring.

 

Churchwarden, Linda Carding, said “ We are delighted to have received this grant, made possible by National Lottery players, it’s wonderful to know that we will be able to preserve St Lucia’s heritage for future generations, especially after being on the Heritage England “at risk “ register for several years facing the possibility of closure.”

 

This 12th Century church, dedicated to Saint Lucy, the patron saint of light and eyesight has stood at the heart of this rural community for over 1000 years. This project aims to carry out essential structural repairs to the roof, tower and drainage before initiating a wide range of heritage activities.

 

Fabric Fund Co-ordinator Sue Woods added “ We are privileged to be offered the opportunity to work alongside the Royal National Institute of Blind People and their Transcription centre. Tactile diagrammatic maps, books and models along with digital technology will be introduced to share the fascinating story of St Lucy, our rare and ancient bells and the history of this Medieval church to all visitors.”

 

A variety of new and exciting activities are planned involving the local community, plus the pupils of St Lucia’s Primary School will be developing a sensory garden in the churchyard. Headteacher Sarah Woolley said “We are delighted that the school is to be actively involved with this project”.

 

Daniel Kawczynski, MP for Shrewsbury & Atcham added “I am so pleased to hear that the church in Upton Magna has been awarded this  National Lottery support. The church plays an important part within the local community and it is essential that it is repaired and restored to enable it to continue to support the people of the village in a way it has done for many years. I will follow the developing association with St Lucy and the RNIB with interest.”

 

Vanessa Harbar, Head of Heritage Lottery Fund West Midlands said: “We have been delighted to support St Lucia to carry out urgent repairs and engage new audiences with this much-loved local landmark. Thank you to the National Lottery players who have made it possible.”

BAPTISMS, WEDDINGS AND FUNERALS

 

 

Baptisms

 

You can be baptised as an infant or an adult. During the service, water is sprinkled on the head of those being baptised. It is a symbolic act which means that the person being baptised has become part of the family of God. Many parents choose to baptise their children in a service that is sometimes called ‘Christening’ to celebrate the new life of their child and commit to raising the child in the Christian faith.

 

Thanksgiving for Children

 

Some parents may not wish to make this commitment at this stage in a child’s life and we also offer a service of thanksgiving following the birth of a child, rather than baptism.

 

If you are interested in being baptised, or having children baptised, please contact a member of our clergy team who can discuss this with you. You will find their contact details here.

 

 

 

Weddings

 

Over 40,000 weddings take place in Church of England parish churches every year. Getting married is a really joyful and exciting time, but it can sometimes be stressful. One of our clergy team can offer you guidance and support not only in planning your wedding day, but also in your married life together.

 

If you’re thinking of getting married in a church, we would love to discuss this with you. Click here to view our team contact information

 

Services of Blessing and Thanksgiving

 

If you choose to get married outside of a church in a civil ceremony, you can still have a service of blessing on your marriage in one of our churches. One of our clergy team will be pleased to help you plan the service and advise what sort of service will suit you best.

 

 

 

Funerals

 

A funeral is used to mark the end of a person's life here on earth. The death of a loved one is an extremely sad and difficult time, so our clergy team is available to offer you help and support. You do not need to be a regular church attender to arrange a funeral; everyone is able to organise a funeral service with us, even if you have never gone to church. Please feel free to contact one of our team if you want to discuss funeral arrangements, or for help and support at this difficult time.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OUR CHURCHES

SAFEGUARDING

 

The Parochial Church Councils of each parish in the Wrockwardine Deanery take the safety of everyone who comes to church and any of its activities very seriously. They work to safeguarding guidelines provided by the Church of England, for both vulnerable adults and children. The Church of England policies and further information are available on the Church of England website.

 

Each parish has a Safeguarding Officer who works with the Parochial Church Council to ensure our safeguarding policy and procedures are implemented and regularly reviewed. The policy adopted by each of our parishes will be available here soon..

 

The Safeguarding Lead for the Deanery is Team Rector Andy Ackroyd.

 

You can also contact local authorities and charities if you have a safeguarding concern.  Visit the relevant website listed below
