Our CAROL SERVICE takes place at Salwarpe on Sunday 15 December at 7.00pm - a traditional service of nine lessons and carols. We are grateful to our former organist Shaun Best for putting this service together and to the Hussingtree Chorale who will be singing for us during the evening. There will be mince pies served in the church afterwards and this year we are hoping to be able to do mulled wine as well as tea and coffee — all welcome.
We shall be celebrating ‘MIDNIGHT MASS’ at Salwarpe at 11.15pm on Christmas Eve.
The service at Martin on CHRISTMAS DAY will be at 10am and we extend a warm welcome to young and old alike — please do bring along a special toy or present to show everybody if you wish.
We shall once again be joining with the parish of Droitwich for a United Eucharist on the Sunday after Christmas, 29 December at 10am in Salwarpe church.

SALWARPE FETE 2020
Please enter in your new diaries Saturday 22 August, the date of the 2020 Salwarpe Village Fete, a great family fun-day - this year the emphasis will be on fun, games and competitions in the style of a traditional Country Fete. The village hall and marquee have been booked, the WI have agreed to provide tea and cakes, there will be the vintage cars in the car park and the dog show again, the Ukulele Band will entertain us - and there will be many stalls, games and events to occupy family members during the afternoon.
Our special thanks to Gillian and Will Kerton for allowing us to hold the Fete again at Churchfields Farm.
If you have ideas for new stalls and children’s games, or if you would like to help in any way either beforehand or on Fete day, please contact us via the enquiries @ button on our Contact page.
