Welcome to the parish church of St. John the Evangelist in Storridge.


Storridge is a rural Herefordshire parish with a beautiful parish church designed by Frederick Preedy.  The congregation share traditional Christian worship and values, reaching out into the wider community with a hand of friendship and welcome to all who would wish to join them.


The history of the church is a fascinating one and the stained glass is a fine example of Preedy's work with an unusually wide third light.


The church is currently hosting a programme of literary (and other) events open to all that have recently included a number of successful poetry evenings and lectures.


Details of the events and worship of the church are to be found on this web site, and it is hoped that visitors will enjoy browsing these pages and maybe visiting us in person during a service or event.

The parish church of St. John the Evangelist in Storridge is situated close to the junction of the B4219 with the A4103 Hereford to Worcester road, and is part of a benefice that includes Mathon and Cradley.




Under guidance from Bishop Richard, our Rector, Robert Ward, has decided to take up a window of opportunity that currently exists within the Diocese for a short period of study leave, starting from 8 August and continuing through to 7 November.  The number of diocesan opportunities for clergy to engage in ‘study leave’ available in each year is limited.  As it is at least eleven years since Robert last took formal 'time out' in his thirty years of ordained ministry to renew and refresh his theological studies this opening is both timely and convenient as it falls in a quieter time of the church year.  Plans are in place to ensure that the life and work of the churches continues smoothly in his absence and these will (soon) be available on the church websites. Any queries can be directed to Churchwardens or PCC members, whilst Mike Vockins is happy to respond where a priest is required.  We look forward to welcoming Robert back as he continues his ministry within the Benefice and the Deanery in November.
