Malvern Priory - 2009

Many churches were built in Malvern during the nineteenth century as tourism expanded, but as tourism dwindled many, especially, non conformist churches closed. Now shops open on Sundays and both parents work, many families are too busy at the weekend to attend church.

Here is a list of churches that remain open. Some have large congregations and some small. 

Links are shown to websites where known. Many of the Church of England establishments have separate listings on the Any Church Near You web pages - a good place to find a church when you are on holiday.
