We are a Methodist Church serving the communities of Four Oaks and Mere Green in Sutton Coldfield in the English West Midlands.
You are assured of a warm welcome if you join us for any of our services and events. There are directions and details of how to find us on the For Visitors page and if you may need any help to join us do please contact the office.
Revd John and Deacon Liz Rowe lead our church family, and John and Liz also have pastoral responsibility for two other churches in the same part of our circuit, churches at Blackwood and Streetly. We share some services with these churches (have a look on the Worship page for details) and also some other events, such as this Autumn's Alpha Course which began on 10 September.
Have you visited our Prayer page? There are some details there of opportunities for you to pray with us, or for us to pray for you if you wish. One of the links on that page will take you to the Hope Together website. If you would like to find out more about HOPE 2014 or join a million other Christians in a Season of Prayer click the link here.
On 1 December we enter the season of Advent, as we prepare for the arrival of Jesus. There are a number of special occasions in December, and if you are planning to join us for any of those you will find details of times and dates on the Worship and the News pages. If you haven't visited us before, or not for a long time, you might find the information on the Visitors page useful - directions and parking information for instance.
Some of the services in December can be rather busy, such as the Light up a Life Service we share with our friends from St Giles Hospice and also the Christingle nativity service which features the young people from our Sunday Club. Others are very quiet and calming, like the continuous communion available on the afternoon of Christmas Eve. We hope there will be something for everyone. You will be very welcome at any of our events and services, at this time of year as during the whole year, and as always do please get in touch we us if we can help.
Not everything finds its way onto the website, especially the activities of some of our church groups and clubs. There's a lot more about that in our monthly magazine The Messenger. If you don't already receive a copy, pick one up when you are in church or contact the office if you would like us to send you one. As well as our various activities, it carries more general pieces. Currently for instance some articles explore what Methodists mean by discipleship, and recent editions have been featuring a series of reflections by one of our most distinguished members, the Revd Dr John Taylor.
