Many churches were built in Malvern during the nineteenth
century as tourism expanded because of the water cure. However as tourism dwindled, many, especially non
conformist churches, closed.
Now shops open on Sundays and both parents work,
many families say they 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
Church Near You website - a good place to find a church when you are
away from home.

When this list was first compiled in 2012 several
churches did not have websites, some of those that did have since changed
their domain name, and occasionally clicking the old name can have bizarre results. Hopefully the
list is currently up to data, but please let us know if any links have stopped
working or your church is omitted.
