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, 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 the Autumn Alpha Course.
June and July is a holiday time of the year. We hope that if you are on holiday this Summer you are blessed with a time of regeneration and refreshment, whether it is peace and quiet or fun and adventure that you look for when you go away. But not everyone goes away and for some people, especially the older folk in our local community the Summer is sometimes a lonely time when usual groups and clubs are closed. Senior members of our local community are warmly invited to have a Holiday at Home with us on 8 August (more details on the News page.)
There's a lot more about church groups and activities in our monthly magazine, The Messenger than we could ever fit onto the website.
The June/July edition has a challenge to us all from our Outreach Committee to consider our mission to the area where our church is located. As Revd John mentions in his letter this is part of a process that will see us evaluate our vision and mission and we will have a meeting to discuss this in October.
It also contains more information about our church's activities and groups, a reflection on this year's Christian Aid week, information about the Baptism Team, and an introduction to the church stewards. Two of our members have articles of interest, one from Jack McGinnigle considers whether perhaps you CAN sometimes be too careful, and The Reverend Dr John Taylor has written on the subject of Respect.
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.
