The Parish of Tamworth has at its centre the splendid building that is St Editha's. This building has served the community, and been the focal point of Christian worship for over 1,200 years and is today the centre of focus for the town's weekly Christian celebrations and for its many civic services which include Mayor-Making, St George's Day, Remembrance and other popular services.

Our sacred space is a treasure house of history, art and architecture. Within its walls are many reminders of a building that has stood the test of time and served the community and provided a place of comfort, welcome and acceptance.

The greatest treasure this building possesses is the spiritual body, the Church, that meets within its walls - Ordinary people with a love of God and a desire to share the good news of Jesus, the Christ, and welcome you into the presence of a love that will never reject or turn you away.


Services range from Book of Common Prayer (1662) through to cutting edge, modern, worship, Taize and reflective prayer services. The building boasts a Grade I listed organ and has a robed choir who contribute as part of the worshipping life of the church.

We are a Bible-based church with a desire to minister and share with people of all ages and welcome differing viewpoints - seeking to find ways of building relationships and bringing unity to this diverse and often troubled world.

If you find yourself in town and would like to come in, the building is open every weekday from 10am to 3pm, and Saturday mornings, where you will find tea, coffee and a well-stocked bookshop (selling Fair traded products) to accompany the welcome.
