Message from the Bishop of Shrewsbury

Buildings are not quiet. They speak volumes. The church buildings of Shropshire tell of faith in Jesus Christ that has shaped lives and communities across this county.

Offering a wonderful opportunity for you to discover these stories, the Festival of Churches will open up many historical and spiritual treasures. I hope you have an enjoyable time exploring these sacred spaces and listening to the different voices, both past and present, on the way. As you visit these holy sites, lovingly cared for by present Salopians, I pray that you will find God’s divine welcome and hear his still small voice for you today.


Bishop of Shrewsbury
