Clent Parish Church

St. Leonard’s is a pretty, rural church, set below the south flank of Clent and Walton Hills, in the north of the county of Worcestershire. We are part of the Stourbridge Deanery of churches in the Diocese of Worcester. Clent was formerly part of the United Benefice of Clent & Belbroughton with Fairfield. Recent re-organisation affiliates St. Leonard with the two neighbouring churches of St. John and St. Saviour in Hagley, all under the guidance of Rev. Richard Newton.

REOPENING CHURCH

St Leonard’s Clent, and St John the Baptist and St Saviour’s Hagley ~ private prayer and public worship. Following discussions including a joint informal PCC for Clent and Hagley on Zoom we have decided to continue to work towards opening our churches for a limited time on two days of each week for the purposes of private prayer , under organised and safe conditions. Arrangements are well under way in both Clent and Hagley. We anticipate being able to make further announcements soon. In terms of public worship , we all look forward to the day we can return to church but the consensus is that it is not possible to organise this in an absolutely safe way at the moment and that what we would be able to do in church on a Sunday would be very restrictive, with no singing allowed, difficulties distributing Holy Communion, and so on. We will therefore continue, for the time being, to hold Sunday Worship on Zoom. Even if you haven’t got a computer, we may be able to help you connect with Zoom on the phone, and supply a service sheet. Please contact me , 01562 882442 or the Hagley office , 01562 886363 if you wish to explore that. Revd. Richard Newton.

A Prayer for those being admitted to hospital

God of love, Make yourself known to me as I enter this hospital. Help me to adjust to this new manner of life. Give me gratitude for those who care for me, compassion for those in the ward with me, love for all who I may meet here, and your presence - that I may know your healing touch. Amen.
