 Save the Worcestershire Archives

Worcestershire County Council intends to cut the Archive and Archaeology Service budget allocation by almost 36%. As well as covering Worcestershire, the archives contain information about a number of churches within Coventry Diocese, particularly those in the deaneries of Alcester, Fosse and Shipston.

If you would like to sign a petition to try and secure the funding for this service then please click the link below.

 Centenary Tree Project List B Applications still awaited

A number of parishes which applied for a tree to celebrate the Centenary of the Diocese in 2018 still need to submit a List B Application to gain permission to plant their tree. Permission to install the plaques is included in the List B application, without need for a Faculty.

The Centenary Tree Project details and Application Form are available on the website by clicking the link below. It would be economical of fuel and time to deliver all plaques in one area in one journey, so the DEO would be grateful if you could submit applications as soon as possible.

 Festival Churches: Mission and Community

The Diocese of Sheffield and the Association of Festival Churches invite all those concerned with the care and imaginative use of churches to a day conference. This is open to clergy, churchwardens and PCC members who are considering alternative patterns of worship, and how their church might widen its appeal to the local community. It will take place on March 25th at Sheffield Cathedral.
