Who we are

We are an energetic, outward and forward-looking Church of England congregation.  We use a modern Catholic liturgy based on an inclusive, liberal theology.  The parish is the largest in the Malvern deanery in terms of population, if not of surface area, and continues to grow steadily.

The community we serve

The churches of Malvern Link with Cowleigh have, since their establishment, embraced Catholic styles and traditions of teaching and worship.  Our involvement in the community has never stopped at the church door, and we seek ways to provide pastoral as well as spiritual support to the community at large.

There are currently five schools in the parish and we support them all, either corporately or as individuals, in a variety of ways ranging from school services and assemblies, membership in their governing bodies and voluntary support to extracurricular clubs and activities.
