The Church is an organisation in The Wardstone Chronicles.


They are an organisation made up of Priests, that are very dedicated to what they do. Priests prey and dedicate their time to God. They are not enemies of the Spook's, and not allies, but merely neutral.

The Church is an organisation dedicated to the Light.

Status and Relationship with Spooks

The Priests from the Church don't agree with the business that the Spook's undertake, but are not neccecerily hostile towards them.

They leave hostility to the Quisitors, who hunts down witches as well as Spooks.

An exception is with Father Stocks, who is not hostile towards Spooks, for he did an apprenticeship with John Gregory, completing his time as an apprentice Spook. However, Stocks turned down the chance to become a fully-trained Spook, and instead turned to the Church as his occupation.
