Welcome to St Alkmunds Church in Shrewsbury - 1100 years old!
Thank you if you voted for St Alkmunds in the prestigious English Heritage Angel Awards. Our congratulations go to the winners St James the Greater, Kettleby, Leicestershire. Here is our nomination video:
At the heart of the historic and beautiful town of Shrewsbury, founded about the year 900, stands the church of St Alkmund which celebrated its 1100th anniversary in 2012. There's a lot going for this town centre church, not least its reputation for the friendliness of the welcome given to its many visitors.
In this website we describe some of the work being done at this town centre church, the times of its weekly Services and something about its history and architectural interest.
We hope that you may feel inspired to pay us a visit, or, if you live in Shropshire, to take part in some of the courses and activities on offer through the year.
St Alkmund’s is open every day of the year from about 0930 to 1600 in winter and 1700 in summer.
