Long Description:
This church is a Grade II* listed building.

From this listing text:-

"Parish church. C12, with early C14 alterations, restored mid-C19.

Timber bell turret, weatherboarded with oak shingled spire.

The north doorway is weather-worn and projects 9 inches beyond the wall-face. It has a semi-circular head of two chevron moulded orders on large engaged shafts with rudimentary leaf capitals
and chamfered enriched abaci. The tympanum is carved with a Tree of Life (the only surviving example of this motif in Worcestershire) with a semi-circular border of six-pointed stars and a lower edge enriched with a cable moulding."

This North doorway is now blocked up.

Services on the second and fourth Sundays.
