Studley Angels – can you find one?

This is the link to the Advent Calendar which will help you to hunt for the hidden angels around Studley https://bit.ly/StudleyAngels. Each window will open on the date on the front to reveal a picture and a clue to that day’s hiding place. We ask that each child only collects one angel- please don’t hoard them! Please pass on this link to families with children/grandchildren so that lots of people can join in the fun. When you find an angel, you might like to let us know on our Facebook page: @ardenmarcheschurches.

Why not decorate yours and bring it to the Walk Through Nativity on Chistmas Eve (booking required)?

Messy Christingle at Home – Sunday 6th December

Please see details for how to reserve your Christingle and take part.


Walk Through Nativity – Christmas Eve 4-7pm

Instead of a Nativity Service this year, we are offering you a Walk Through Nativity. Come with your household/bubble and join the shepherds, the angels, the magi and the Holy Family as you journey to Bethlehem to see the new born baby.

Booking is essential. You will be offered a range of timed slots between 4-7pm and you must attend in your timed slot only.

!!–Nearly all slots have now been allocated. If you find that you cannot get a ticket, please check back here regularly as we are exploring whether we can create some additional times. –!!

The visit will probably take you around 20-30 minutes. We sadly cannot offer dressing-up clothes this year, but children (and adults!) are welcome to arrive dressed as their favourite Nativity Characters.

Ensure you arrive 5 minutes before your timed slot and wait outside the main gate to start on your journey. We regret that late arrivals may not be admitted (this will be at the discretion of the event team on the day) due to social distancing.



IF YOU ARE CONCERNED that someone you know is at risk of, or is being abused, or presents a risk to others, please seek advice from a Safeguarding Adviser or if necessary report the matter to the Local Authority Social Care Services or the Police without delay.

Arden Marches: bringing God’s love to a hurting world.

Welcome to the Arden Marches Group of Parishes website. We are a group of four churches that are located on the rural western edge of the Coventry Diocese.

The group is centred around the village of Studley and has other churches in Mappleborough Green, Oldberrow and Morton Bagot. Each of our churches has a character of its own and across the group there are a wide range of services where all are welcomed.

As part of the Christian church we are committed to sharing the good news of the gospel of Jesus Christ with each other and with all in our communities. Our motto is “Bringing God’s love to a hurting world” which we seek to do through our activities, outreach, groups and worship services.

Please take the time to look round our website and see all the different things we do.  If you have any questions please contact our parish administrator, or one of the clergy team.  We would love to hear from you – but even better, we’d love to see you at one of our services, so please join us!



All are welcome to join us for our services.
