St Mary’s, Stone DY10 4BE

There has been a church on the site since 1269 and following a fire the present church built in 1830. The parish became part of a united benefice with St Cassian’s Chaddesley Corbett and now, more recently, a member of the new 5-church parish of Kidderminster East.

St Mary's Church

St Mary’s Church

St Mary’s is a grade II listed traditional stone faced country church with a congregation seating capacity of 130. The church, complete with a working bell tower and a traditional pipe organ, has a number of fine stained glass windows including one dedicated to Peter Collins, racing driver, and a more recent addition recording the many activities from the life at the recently closed church school. There is a small church room at the edge of the church boundary which is used for additional church meetings and social events including coffee mornings.

The congregation is small but there is a caring fellowship and a warm welcome is extended to all. Outside of our Sunday worship we have joined together this year for lent discussion on Praying for Others. There are a number of social events including the Annual Bluebell Walk and cycle ride.
