Events at church are still affected by Covid restrictions but we are now worshipping in person as well as online. Check out the News and Information page and the Re-Opening Church page for the latest information about services.

Our Mission Statement

WELCOME

During the COVID-19 health crisis many services and activities which normally take place in church were suspended. The general information on our site about activities and services does not apply, though we hope we will be filling those pages with activities again soon. There are now services in church on Sunday and Wednesday mornings and you are warmly invited to join us.

 

Click here for the latest news about church re-opening and worship in person.

During this time please see in particular these three pages (also found by clicking the big buttons at the top of each page or their titles below) and visit us on Facebook.

The News and Information Page:

News and updates from church, additional contact details, the prayer line, this week's notices, and lots of other details.

Click here to find more news about services in church

The Worship at Home Page:

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 show some live services on the Worship at Home page.

The Junior Church at Home Page:

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. Find out why young people are getting together with God every Friday at 5:17.

We have lots of links to activities on the Junior Church at Home page.

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 Tell us about something we've missed, anything that's out of date, links that have stopped working.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. 

Christian-Aid-2.jpg

It was Christian Aid Week 10-16 May. There were no traditional envelopes again this year, but the need is as great as ever. If you're able, please click the logo to go to the church justgiving page for Christian Aid to make a donation.

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 News and Information, 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 available for rent by getting in touch with our manager. Click this link or look out for the "book a room" buttons.

More than sixty UK churches contributed to this blessing. Our buildings are still closed and quiet far more often than we would like, but we are the church and you can hear our voice everywhere.

At the moment we are expecially moved by the terrible toll the virus has been taking in India. Many of us have links with India or have friends or neighbours who do. Please join us in praying for help to flood into all parts of India from all parts of the world. Perhaps this version of the Blessing sung in more than thirty languages from around India will help to focus our thoughts.
