Six simple questions

Who are we?

We are the benefice of ‘Ruyton XI Towns with Great Ness and Little Ness’, now known as ‘Church around the Cliffe’. We are served by our Priest-in-Charge Rev Lucinda Burns and a local Ministry Team.

Each church has one or more church wardens. There are also a group of volunteers who work within the church and the wider community.

Who do we serve?

As Church of England parish churches, we are available for all the people of our community.

We cater for those who come occasionally, for those who come regularly and especially for newcomers.

People at different stages of life and belief discover through the church how God relates to ordinary life.

Why are we here?

We exist to discover the love of God revealed in the world. By worship, prayer, teaching and service we seek to point to that love most especially made known in the person of Jesus Christ.

Christians have worshipped in our three churches for hundreds of years. Generations of people have adapted the buildings for their main purpose — to be the focus for the church’s mission in our part of Shropshire.
