Welcome

Welcome to the website of St Benedict Biscop  and our sister church The Venerable Bede, both of which are located in the large, attractive village of Wombourne, South Staffordshire, within the Lichfield Diocese and forming a major part of the Smestow Vale Team Ministry.  The parish church of St Benedict Biscop is a Grade 2 listed building and is a landmark building in the Wombourne Conservation Area. Records show that a church has existed on the present site for more than a thousand years. Restored and rebuilt several times in the intervening period, the present building is constructed of pink sandstone with a plain tiled roof.  It was rebuilt to the design of the prominent Victorian architect G. E. Street in 1867, yet still retains a small amount of medieval masonry in the north wall.

The Church of the Venerable Bede is more modern building, dating back to 1957 and also houses a multi-functional hall which is used for all age groups.

We hope the website will provide you with an introduction to our work, worship and witness and an encouragement for you to join us in our discipleship and journey of faith.”
