Welcome, Worship, Witness



"The Priory seeks to be a community which responds to God`s love in worship, welcomes all in the name of Jesus Christ and reaches out in the power of the Spirit"


The Great Malvern Priory started life as a Benedictine Monastery c.1075-1540 and is now a popular parish church.


The current incumbents are the Vicar of Malvern, Rev. John Barr, and his wife Rev. Dr. Mary Barr who not only offer a warm welcome to all, but provide church services with both traditional and modern elements.


With a well established choir and active groups for children and young people, this is one parish church that has something for everyone.


Whether you're local to Malvern or a visitor to the area, please call in - you'll be made very welcome!
