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.
Please note that the church office telephone number has recently changed. The new number is 0121 308 7425.
At the beginning of December the church also changed its email address. The address is firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
Later in the year the three churches will be combining their resources to run an Alpha Course. Here at Four Oaks we have run courses for some years and we're excitied at joining forces with our "sister churches". There will be dates and detaisl soon on the Community page.
You will be warmly weclomed at all the services listed on the Worship page, but have a look too at the News page for some of the other things that are happening. You might find Messy Church good fun, or perhaps you like the idea of fellowship and friendship on a Monday afternoon, or church that happens at Costa Coffee and involves a lot of cake!
On 19 May we celebrate Pentecost, often called the birthday of the church, when the Holy Spirit empowered Jesus' first disciples. Coincidentally, for Methodists this year the same Sunday is also Aldergate Sunday. That is the Sunday prior to 24 May, when we remember the experience John Wesley had on that day in 1738 which transformed his life and inspired his ministry. This year we will have an all age worship in the morning and will share our evening service with friends from neighbouring churches of Churches Together in Four Oaks.
Call back at our site soon to see what we will be doing to support the campaign launched in January: Enough Food For Everyone - If. We are planning what we can do about that - you may be able to help. In the meantime please join with us in praying that when the leaders of the G8 meet in Northern Ireland in June, hosted by our own Prime Minister they will be guided with wisdom to consider the four Big IFs - AID, TAX, LAND and TRANSPARENCY.
Not everything finds its way onto the website. If you don't already receive a copy, pick up our monhly magazine The Messenger when you are in church, or contact the office if you would like us to send you a copy. It has more information about what some of the church's groups and clubs are doing week by week as well as more general pieces. For instance, recently we have featured articles about distinctive features of Methodist history and heritage.
