The Cornmarket, Worcester, WR1 2DF
Tel: 01905 25952

The Church dates back to 1768 and is constructed with bricks made from clay brought down by river from the coal mines in the North of the County. The church contains the earliest records of Freemasonry in the City in a memorial to Samuel Swan; The Lodge was founded at the Reindeer Inn in 1791. It is also famously reputed to be the intended marriage place of William Shakespeare & Ann Whately in November 1582. However the following day a bond was issued for him to marry Ann Hathaway of Stratford upon Avon, who was with child. It is generally believed that Shakespeare married Ann Hathaway in preference and the records of this are held at the County Records Office in Worcester, due to the fact that at the time, Stratford upon Avon was part of the Worcester Diocese.
