Lent 2020

Lent is fast approaching, starting with Ash Wednesday this week, where our service will take place in the evening at 7:30pm.
Please note that there is no morning service this Wednesday.
During Lent we will be using the Live Lent booklets handed out recently, please retain these and bring them with you to services during Lent where we will hold short informal discussions around topics from these booklets.

Holy Lamps for anniversaries and thanksgiving

Our church is a place of constant prayer, by having lamps burning at the Lady Chapel, and other shrines, seven days a week. Anybody may sponsor a lamp in thanksgiving for a special anniversary or birthday, or in memory of a loved one who has departed this life.
The cost of sponsoring one lamp is now £20.00 per month, or £5.00 per week. Envelopes are available at the back of the church, once completed please place on the collection plate during the Sunday offertory.

Toy Service - Thank You!

Once again you have been very generous and all gifts have been deleivered to Birmingham Cty Mission ready to be categorised, wrapped and then deleivered to children in the city who would otherwise have nothing or very little to look forward to opening on Christmas morning.

Shown here is just a small selection of what was donated.

Fund Raising Update - Thank You!

Great News! Thanks to the fund raising efforts of our congregation, we have more or less reached our target of £5000 towards a replacement heating system.

Our efforts will now move to securing funding for the remaining amount so that we can have heating restored in the main part of the church in time for next Winter.

Parish Update

There have been a number of changes over the last few months, including renovation work in All Saints House in preparation for new tenants to move in.
The good news is that the house is almost full as earlier this summer the Church of Englands childrens charity, The Feast, moved in.
More recently the top floor flat has been let out to theological students. The house provides a vital source of income for the church, but it is also wonderful to have such great neighbours on site.

Prayers

Prayer is a very powerful tool for talking to God, by using prayer daily in our lives we are able to give thanks for what we have and we can also ask our heavenly father for those other things we are in need of. Set some time aside each day for prayer, especially during this season of Lent.
