Worcestershire churches open up on the high street

A group of Worcestershire churches is hoping to buck the downward trend on the high street after setting up a new business.

Still Waters, a Christian centre and shop, has opened in Upton-Upon-Severn.

The idea came about after the town's rectory was sold, and another point of contact with members of the public was needed.

Canon Francess Wookey, who looks after many of the churches, said the venture was an inter-denominational operation.
