Welcome to the Arden Marches website. We are a group of four churches centred around the village of Studley, with other churches in Mappleborough Green, Oldberrow and Morton Bagot. If you have any questions, please contact us.
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)?
Please see details for how to reserve your Christingle and take part.
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.
