Four Oaks Methodist Church
Lots of information on where to find services on radio and TV, live services online, service sheets for home worship, materials for Bible study, links for prayer. Keep scrolling for the latest additions and for Revd Stephen's amazing Bible puzzles.
We are an active Methodist church in the Four Oaks part of Sutton Coldfield, serving the communities of Mere Green and Four Oaks in the northernmost part of Birmingham. The menu will help you find out more about where we are and what we do.
The Frequently Asked Questions button was new just before lockdown began. Generally the answers there tell you the position in more normal times - please refer to the Covid-19, Worship at Home and Junior Church at Home pages for information during the health crisis. If you find that a more general question about what our church is like isn't covered though, or the answer isn't helpful, please tell the website editor.
Although our sturdy old church looks very traditional you will find our facilities are all new. As part of our calling to serve our community, when they aren't in use for services all our rooms are (in normal times) available for rent by getting in touch with our manager. Click this link or look out for the "book a room" buttons.

On the day, starting at 8.00 pm exactly, stream the music from here so everyone in the country can play it and sing along at the same time.
Joy to the World
More than sixty UK churches contributed to this blessing. Our buildings are mostly closed and quiet, but we are the church and you can hear our voice everywhere.
Resources for Junior Church members to be church at home as well, including Junior Church Online on Sunday afternoons and lots of videos, puzzles and activities.
During the COVID-19 health crisis many services and activities which normally take place in church are suspended. The general information on our site about activities and services does not apply.
During this time please see in particular three new pages (also found by clicking the big buttons at the top of each page or their titles below) and visit us on Facebook.
Please contribute to these pages. We want them to be as comprehensive and as up to date as possible. Tell us about something we've missed, anything that's out of date, links that have stopped working. Send us anything you would have wanted to go into our monthly magazine, the Messenger, if instead it might be suitable to go here on the website, or on our Facebook page - or both.
Whilst the health crisis continues to disrupt normal church activities so extensively we won't be updating most of the pages on our site, but we will update these three pages as often as we can - hopefully with your help! Click the big orange button to send us an email.
