Stourbridge Deanery NewsFrom 1st February Stourbridge Deanery, of which St. Leonard had been part, will be subsumed along with the Deaneries of Kingswinford and Dudley into the newly created ‘Deanery of Greater Dudley’.St. Leonard will not be joining them, initially.
Legal and historical affiliation to the ‘Benefice of Clent and Belbroughton with Fairfield’ mean that we will transfer to the ‘Redditch and Bromsgrove Deanery’ while making immediate application for St. Leonard to become part of ‘Greater Dudley’ (thereby retaining our present Rector and Curate).It is expected for Belbroughton and Fairfield to remain in the Bromsgrove orbit; and for the churches of Churchill, Blakedown and Broome to make application to transfer to the Deanery of Stourport and Kidderminster.
