Welcome to St. Werburgh's Church in the village of Kingsley.
St. Werburgh's is one of five churches in the Mid-Churnet Benefice comprising of, St. Werburgh's Kingsley, Holy Trinity, Oakamoor, St. John's Cotton, St. Mildred's Whiston and St. Mark's Foxt.
St. Werburgh's Church is now in an interregnum. Please contact Church Warden Hilary Corby - 01538 754842 for any enquiries you have.
Apart from our Church Services, St. Werburgh's is a very active Church offering a wide range of activities with something for everyone. We have a proposed development at the back of the Church for a Community Area.

10.00a.m. Holy Communion with the Children from St. Werburgh's School
Our children's After School Club is called J.A.M. (Jesus and Me) and I.C.E. (Imagine Christ Everywhere). It is for children from primary school age upwards. We meet on a Friday, 4.45p.m. to 5.45p.m. during term time. It is a vibrant group, offering children the chance to develop skills different to the ones they use at home and school. We have discussions, bible stories, crafts based on the stories, music and prayer. During the year our display board at the back of the church shows our work through the various times of the Church year, e.g. Christmas, Easter, Harvest and Remembrance.
We have a Parent and Toddler Group which meets in Kingsley Village Hall (car parking available) on a Tuesday 2.00p.m - 3.00p.m. during term time. This is a great way to meet new friends and chat over refreshments, while the children play, have a themed story with games, crafts and prayer.
The church also has a Craft Club which is open to everyone, some people just come along for a chat - details will be put into the events section of this page. We also have a choir, flower arranging team, bell ringing and a thriving Mothers' Union Branch. Our Benefice magazine is available every month.
Whatever your age, we have an activity for you! We would love you to come along to our services, events or activities.
