This week's Prayer


Please use this prayer during the next week. 

Almighty God,
as your kingdom dawns,
turn us from the darkness of sin
to the light of holiness,
that we may be ready to meet you
in our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.



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

What happens if I am sick and need prayer?

Please contact the clergy.  We are  able to visit in person either to your home or hosptial and care homes. 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.  

What happens if I want to arrange a christening?

Please contact Lizzi in the Parish Office, who is 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.
