The Parish of Halas

A website for the Church of England Parish Churches in Cradley, Halesowen, Hasbury, Lapal and Romsley

We are  a team of five churches, working together to live as friends and followers of Jesus Christ in our local communities.

 

Alongside other churches in Dudley and Worcestershire (the Church of England Diocese of Worcester) we pray that our lives reflect the life of Jesus through our commitment to...

Love, Compassion, Justice & Freedom

 

If you'd be interested in joining with us in our worship, our fellowship, our work or any part of our daily journey with God, come along to one of our services or get in touch.  We will always do our best to make you welcome and to listen to what you have to say.

Welcome to the Halas Website.

We hope you find the information useful.  Do not hesitate to contact us if you wish to meet a member of the clergy or find out more about what we offer.

 

Fr Rob Hall, Team Rector.

Stuck at home? Struggling to pray?

We're setting up a new page - Halas Churches at Home- for weekly readings, prayers, Sunday Sermon texts, videos and audio, and Midweek Reflections.

We're also reinstating the Halas Team Facebook Page for your responses to sermons, personal reflections, prayer requests and mutual support, with a daily late evening prayer video uploaded by 8pm each night Monday to Friday from one of our churches.

public worship

is now suspended

but we're not closed

we're just going virtual instead

The Church of England has suspended regular Church Services across the country

in order to reduce the rapid spread of coronavirus COVID-19

(Funerals are still happening but with very limited numbers)

Our church buildings, like those throughout the country, are now closed until the present restrictions are lifted.

We're finding new ways to worship together while we're all at home.  

Look around this site and the facebook page

and if you know people who want to be in touch but don't have internet access

please get in touch and let the office or one of the clergy know.

 

The Black Country Food bank will need our particular support at the moment to answer significant need in our community.  If you can't get supplies to them, you can give financially through their website.  Click on the logo above.

The Halesowen Welcome Group

was an initiative of local Churches for asylum seekers and refugees and Halas has been involved from the beginning.  The video will give you some idea about the group's work.
