Coronavirus

Because of the national and local situation in Sandwell we are mostly ONLINE in all our meetings, including Sunday.

We're delighted that up to 30 of us are now able to meet at the church building on Newhall Street (you can view our Covid-19 Risk Assessment). If you'd like to know more about that please fill in a contact form.

But we will continue to be doing our service in the same way whether at home or in Newhall Street: pre-recording sermons and putting together a 'service' ('Grace Together') that you can use personally if you are on your own or as a couple or a family or as housemates ... whatever works for you.

And if you're not a Christian or you're trying to reconnect with God and church, you're very welcome to join us for any of our 'online' services which are linked to below. You can also contact us via the contact page

Below are our services. You can follow the prayers and the readings, listen to the songs (sing or hum if you can/want to ... or just listen to the words) and watch recorded messages (on Vimeo/Youtube) from the Bible:
