As a church we aim to be outward looking, both to the local community and to the worldwide church. We have an active parish visiting team, which visits house to house to make links with those who are not yet part of the church community. We hold regular Alpha Courses for anyone wanting to explore the faith.
We have strong ties with several parts of Africa. We have a link with the Diocese of Aru in the Democratic Republic of Congo, through Bishop Ande Titre, who was on placement here during his training in Birmingham. As well as praying regularly for them, we have helped finance the building of a church secondary school and diocesan office, as well as funding humanitarian work. We also support the diocesan link with the Anglican Church in Malawi, which several of our members have visited. And we have ties with a church school and orphanage in Moshe, Tanzania. Groups from the parish have visited both, and we aim to give regular financial and prayer support.
Other mission links include Dave Waters, with Ambassadors in Sport in South Africa, Ron and Jeanette Happ with Interserve in Nepal, and a family working with CMS in a Muslim country in central Asia.
More locally, we are happy to support both financially and practically the work of Friends International among international students in Birmingham’s universities, and also the work of the Church Army and the Children’s Society.
We are a friendly and growing church in the south of Birmingham Diocese and on the edge of the beautiful Lickey Hills. We have two church buildings and a modern and well used Parish Centre. We aim to be inclusive of all ages, and have a range of lively children's and young people's groups. We also aim to be outward looking, both to the local community and to the worldwide church, and have strong ties with several parts of Africa.
There is a wide range of services, from the contemporary to the traditional, and you will find a warm welcome at them all. We also offer a variety of midweek groups for all ages, and a range of courses for anyone wanting to explore the Christian faith.
