Pershore Benefice is a group of four Anglican churches centred around the market town of Pershore, and includes the villages of Birlingham, Pinvin and Wick. Our Priest-in-Charge, along with a ministry team and many volunteers, worship and work together to ensure that our churches are at the hearts of their community.
