Pictures from the early 1900’s
St Peter’s Crabbs Cross is a small Victorian church with a catholic tradition. It was a chapel of ease to Feckenham church when built and has “travelled” between other parishes as such, until it became a parish church in 1980. It was finally consecrated in its centenary year: 1996. It is now part of the united benefice of Christ the King Redditch.
The Victorian Society has shown interest in the building, because so many chapels like it have disappeared from the English landscape and the Society is keen that such buildings be preserved.
The church has recently had the roof repaired after a considerable period of fund raising; and is newly decorated.
We are a welcoming church to all ages. We look to the bishop of Ebbsfleet, l, for our pastoral and spiritual needs and guidance.
We enjoy and engage in pilgrimage to the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham each year at the end of July, if you are interested in coming along then contact us in the usual way.
The parish Sung Mass is the centre of our worship and all ages are welcome at the celebration. The Sunday Service is usually followed by tea, coffee, and biscuits (cake if you are lucky) in the Church Hall after the service.
Our church community has affiliated Guides, , Brownies, and Rainbows.
The church hall is used by a Pre-school group daily and 2 evenings per week by our uniformed organisations, and other groups with a Guide Hut to the side of the building.
Social events are part of our life together and once the pandemic allows, we hope to increase the number we hold during the year.
The worshipping community has a good feel, and we know how to laugh and enjoy ourselves.
We are a welcoming community, why not visit us?
