.  Everyone should maintain a safe 2 m distance from other people.

The church arranged for safe private prayer, June 2020

For the moment, the church is just opening for the purposes of private prayer. Although we’d love to see you, we aren’t yet ready for visitors who just want to have a look around the church. Hopefully that will be possible again before too much longer.


Unfortunately we’ve had to cancel all public worship and close the church for the near future, so we’re live-streaming services each Sunday morning and recording weekly videos for our children. Please join us each week for the 10am Sunday service – all the links are given below.

For more information about past services, resources for prayer and our response to the coronavirus situation, including suggestions for helping the community, please see our coronavirus response page.

We’re a friendly, open parish church in the heart of Sutton Coldfield where all are welcome, whether you’re visiting for the first time or have been coming here for many years.

We welcome people of all ages and at all stages in their Christian faith. Our churchmanship is ‘central’ and inclusive. We have a warm, comfortable, accessible church. Our facilities for children help them to feel part of the Church while allowing parents a space to worship and learn.

I think the services work really well, and I’m not for a … Continue reading A thing I need to say…
