About Us



Our Mission

All about connecting!

Our mission is for Pershore Community Church to be a community where we are all:

  • connecting with God
  • connecting with One Another
  • connecting the Lost with God

Our Story
In 2009, a group from City Church Worcester, together with other local Christians, began to plant a new church in Pershore. Building on many years of prayer and training, Pershore Community Church launched publicly in September 2010 and was part of Salt and Light UK’s vision to plant 75 churches during the decade. In these early days the church took the form of a family on mission and outreach events were regularly supported by the entire group.

Growing steadily, and beginning to meet more regularly and formally, the renewed vision of 2015 was for “Loving Jesus, Loving Life” (John 10:10). The church met in several locations, reaching different aspects of the community, and a close-knit but growing church community emerged. The first staff member was employed, the Leadership Team expanded and links with other churches developed.

Our Beliefs
We subscribe to the Evangelical Alliance’s basis of faith (https://www.eauk.org/about-us/basis-of-faith) and are affiliated to Synergy, a family of churches across the Midlands (https://www.facebook.com/synergysphere/).
