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, get in touch. 

We'll always do our best to make you feel welcome 

and look forward to hearing what you have to say.

We are seeking to be diverse and inclusive churches

What happens if I am sick and need prayer?

Please contact the clergy.  We may not be able to visit in person at the moment but we are more than happy to be on the phone and pray with you.  And of course we'll keep you in our private prayers and the prayers of the church community if you should you wish it. 

 

What happens if someone needs Last Rites?

If someone you care for is in hospital, contact the hospital chaplaincy immediately, but please also let the Parish Clergy know.  If they are at home, please contact the parish clergy directly.  Our numbers are under our photos at the top of this page.

 

What happens if I need to arrange a funeral?

We are always here to take funerals.  The Funeral Director will be in touch with us if you would like a Church of England minister to conduct the service.  For the moment however, under government guidelines, funerals can only take place at the crematorium or at the graveside, not in church buildings.  Only immediate family can attend - generally spouses or partners, parents and children.  We realise that this is very hard, but these rules apply throughout the country at present, and are for your protection and the protection of the people you care about.  We would encourage you to consider whether then holding an additional Memorial Service when the present crisis is over might be helpful for you and for those unable to attend the funeral.  All friends and family would be welcome to come and pray, remember, and celebrate their life,

 

What happens if I want to arrange a christening?

Please contact the Parish Office. There are no baptisms at present, except when a life is in danger.  However we are happy to make provisional bookings for the future when we'll be free to gather together again.

 

What happens if I want to book a wedding?

Please contact the parish office.  There are no weddings at present, but we are happy to make provisional bookings for the future, and will do all that we can to help you if you have had to re-arrange a planned ceremony.

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.
