Our mission: Come follow Christ in the footsteps of St Chad

Welcome – it's great to see you!

The Severn Loop Parishes serve the rural communities of Albrighton with Battlefield, Bicton, Bomere Heath, Fitz, Leaton, Montford and Shrawardine and is situated to the north and west of the town of Shrewsbury in the county of Shropshire.

We are part of the Diocese of Lichfield whose mission statement was inspired by its founding saint: Come follow Christ in the footsteps of St Chad. We in the Loop have qualified this with our own strapline: Know the Story, Share the Story, Live the Story. In our life together as disciples in these beautiful rural communities, we seek to deepen our faith, share the hope we have, and bear witness to Jesus as Lord in all that we do.

Whether you would like to join with us for Sunday worship or in one of our ministries, whether you're thinking about marriage or baptism, or whether you are just browsing, we welcome you!
