Welcome to the Cleobury Mortimer Benefice.  We are a group of seven parishes in rural south-east Shropshire, which comprise the churches of St Mary the Virgin Cleobury Mortimer, St Michael, Hopton Wafers,  All Saints Neen Sollars, St George Milson, St John the Baptist Kinlet, St Mary Neen Savage and St John the Baptist Doddington.

Following the closure of all churches from 17 March, churches are now allowed to reopen for private prayer from Monday 15 June.  Information about reopening will be posted on individual churches' pages as soon as it is known.


Services have now re-started at all benefice churches from the beginning of September.  Details will be found on the services page, and on the pages for each individal church.


Bishop Richard visited St Mary's on Saturday 12 September as part of his Diocesan Pilgrimage.  A recording can be seen here.
