We’re a small, friendly, country church with a real community feel, drawing people from the nearby villages of Baughton, Strensham, Naunton, and Earls Croome.
Our regular service is of Holy Communion, at 9:30am on the fourth Sunday of the month. Many congregation members attend other churches in the area on weeks when there is no service here.
Our annual carol service is always a very special and popular event. Get there early to guarantee a seat!
We work closely with St Nicholas, Earl’s Croome.

The church at Hill Croome was built mainly in the style of the 14th century, and underwent extensive restoration in 1907 when much of the north wall of the nave was rebuilt. The pulpit is Jacobean. The three bells, one of which is 14th century, were restored to mark the new millennium.
It is said that the original village of Hill Croome was devastated by the Black Death, and that the people abandoned the site and moved along the lane to Baughton. Glebe Farm opposite the church, was at one time The Rectory and then briefly a home for retired clergy.
