Four Oaks Methodist Church
A beacon for Christ
radiating the love of God
through worship, word and witness
Our Mission Statement
During the COVID-19 health crisis many regular services and activities in church were suspended, but happily most have now resumed. There are services in church on Sunday and Wednesday mornings and you are warmly invited to join us. Most regular church groups and activities have restarted - see the Information Page.
Little by little we have begun bringing back into use the pages from the website that went into mothballs during the pandemic. We will keep some of the temporary pages (mentioned below) going for a while though, even if that means that sometimes you might find something mentioned twice.
In the meantime, Click here for the latest news about worship in person.
Don't forget that you can also visit us on Facebook.
News and updates from church, additional contact details, the prayer line, this week's notices, and lots of other details. This temporary page has been a lifeline during the pandemic, but as more and more things come back to normal we will be bidding it farewell before long and waking up the pages that went into hibernation with the first lockdown.
Lots of information that we all relied on in lockdown - and which we may still need - about where to find services on radio and TV, live services online, service sheets for home worship, materials for Bible study, links for prayer.
Please contribute to these pages. Tell us about something we've missed, anything that's out of date, links that have stopped working.

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 the first lockdown began. Generally the answers there tell you the position in more normal times - please refer to the temporary News and Information, Worship at Home and Junior Church at Home pages for current details, and click here for information about worship in person. 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 available for rent by getting in touch with our manager. Click this link or look out for the "book a room" buttons.

Thank you to everyone who came early to Church on Easter Day and shared breakfast. We raised a little over £200 to go to this year's Christian Aid campaign. There will be opportunities between now and Christian Aid Week (15 to 21 May) to make a donation in church if you wish and in the meantime you could always click the logo or this link to go to our justgiving page.
