The Parish of Halas

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

c14.png
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 want our lives to reflect the life of Jesus through commitment to...

Love, Compassion, Justice & Freedom

This is Prisons Week
Pray for 
prisoners and their families, prison staff, the victims of crime, and all involved in the care and resettlement of offenders

The Black Country Food bank needs 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.

 Open, diverse and inclusive churches

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.

Our Rector, Fr Rob Hall will have been a Vicar in Halas for twenty years on 13th November this year.  After two decades of ministry here, he will be moving on to take up a new post as Vicar of St Paul's The Crossing, right by Walsall Bus Station, and of the adjacent parish of St Luke's Chuckery.  He starts his new job (after a short break) on 7th December.

What happens if I am sick and need prayer?

Please contact the clergy.  We may be able to visit in person either to your home or garden, and if that is not possible 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.  The restrictions on numbers which were in force during lockdown no longer apply, although we may need to be careful with larger funerals since we still have an obligation to keep people safe and not allow overcrowding - it varies from building to building but we can talk about that easily.  Some crematoria also still have restrictions on numbers in force.  We continue to require face coverings during worship, hand sanitiser is available in all our churches, and we sing seated to lessen the risk of transmission of viruses

What happens if I want to arrange a christening?

Please contact Lizzi in the Parish Office. We are now arranging christening services againand would be happy to discuss possible dates with you .

What happens if I want to book a wedding?

Please contact Lizzi in the parish office.  The restrictions on numbers which were in force during lockdown no longer apply, although we may need to be careful with larger gatherings since we still have an obligation to keep people safe and not allow overcrowding - it varies from building to building but we can talk about that easily.   We continue to require face coverings during worship, hand sanitiser is available in all our churches, and we sing seated to lessen the risk of transmission of viruses.
