For the last few years, St Mary’s Stanford with Orleton has been in Teme Valley North Parish but, as part of the Stourport Deanery re-organisation, it was agreed that St Mary’s should move to the Benefice of Teme Valley South. After some two years of consultation, this will now occur on 1st November 2012. All details about St Mary’s will then be included on the Teme Valley South website.
We are planning a service of Evensong to celebrate St Mary’s transition on Friday 30th November at 7.30pm followed by a faith supper in Stanford Village Hall. Further details will be posted on this website and in November’s Temespan (Teme Valley North’s parish magazine).
Until the end of the year Stanford News (including services) will be included in Temespan.
