Welcome to the web site of the church of St Gregory the Great, Morville. We are an Anglican church serving the parish of Morville, a small Shropshire village, 3 miles from the market town of Bridgnorth.
The church is a member of the Bridgnorth and Morville Parishes Team Ministry which in turn is part of the Diocese of Hereford. We hold traditional weekly Sunday services including a monthly Communion Service based on the Book of Common Prayer. All are very welcome whether you wish to join us regularly or come for services such as Christmas Day or Harvest Festival.
We are also delighted to welcome visitors, those seeking Baptism or arranging a Wedding. The church which dates back to 1118, has an interesting history and is normally open to visitors every day between 10.00am and 4pm.
Our website aims to provide information on our services and activities, the church history and links to other sites which may be useful. In particular there is a considerable amount of information on the Bridgnorth Team ministry web site which should be referred to if you have not found the information you require.

Services - Public worship at Morville Church has resumed and we welcome visitors to our services. Details of our services can be found on the Services Page together with guidance on the measures to mitigate the ongoing risks of COVID19.
Visiting the church - The church is open during daylight hours for individual private prayer and for visitors to explore the church. Please use the sanitiser in the porch on entering and leaving the church and observe social distancing. You are also encouraged to wear a mask and scan the Test and Trace QR code in the porch.

Can You Help Morville Church Please? Everyone will be aware that, with the COVID-19 pandemic, churches have been closed for services and even access for visitors for some months now and it may be a while before they are open again for services. In the meantime there are still costs to be met, bills to be paid even while the church is not receiving any income. We rely on the congregation and visitors’ generosity through church collections, donations, sale of books and similar but none of these are possible at the moment. As a result we are in need of financial support to help us through this difficult time.
Understandably, these are difficult times financially but if you feel that you are able to make a donation, perhaps whatever you would have given in the church collection plate at a service or simply a small donation to help ease the way until we can have services and start to fundraise again, please use the message form on the Contact Us page and we will provide you with bank details or address for a cheque. Your help and support will be greatly appreciated - thank you. Please see our Support Us page for more information on how you can support this rural church and churchyard.
