Welcome to the website for the churches of St Giles’ Whittington, St Mary’s Weeford and St Bartholomew’s Hints.
We are three churches in the South Staffordshire area of the Lichfield Diocese, each one serving our own villages in our own way and rejoicing in our unique identities while at the same time supporting and encouraging each other in our common goal to serve God and our communities as well as we can.
We also take our responsibilities as custodians of our very pretty buildings and churchyards very seriously and love to show them off to others. You can find us located just outside Lichfield so please do pop in and see us “in the flesh” if you are ever in the area.
We have been without a vicar since the end of January but have been very well supported by ministers, active and retired, from all over the Lichfield area and as far away as Solihull. All of our normal services have gone ahead as planned (see ‘Calendar’ for services this month).
We are delighted to announce that the Revd Dr Jason Phillips will be our new vicar and his installation is likely to be in early to mid December. We look forward to welcoming him to our churches and communities.
