It is good to welcome you to this website of the dynamic and vibrant community that worships in the two parish churches in Moseley - St Anne’s and St Mary’s. We are an open and inclusive, wide-ranging group of Christians who meet together to worship God and encourage one another. The Eucharist is central to our worship in Moseley and through it we receive empowerment to share God’s love to the people in the village and beyond.
Our congregations regularly contain five generations worshipping together and in both churches you will receive a warm welcome, experience the opportunity to worship God, to be challenged and encouraged through his word and to make new friends. Some of St Mary’s services are live-streamed across multiple platforms. Please see our weekly bulletin for details of how to access these if you are not yet able to join us in person. With a range of ‘services’ there is something on offer for most people – please have a look. We offer Breakfast Church, worship in traditional, contemporary, Celtic and Taizé traditions - something for most people.
The first half of the Church year focuses very much on Jesus, his life, ministry, death and resurrection. The second half of the year moves the focus on to God’s people as we work our way through Sundays after Trinity. This period, which lasts right up until autumn, is known as Green Time or Ordinary Time. Each week the readings set for Sundays take us through an exploration of a wide range of issues as we work out what it means to live as the people of God. As we continue to emerge from the lockdowns of a pandemic, we need to learn afresh what it is to build community, to look out for the forgotten and marginalised and to be faithful in our worship of God.
Thank you for stopping by to read. I hope to welcome you in person very soon. Please contact our office if you have any questions.
With warm best wishes,
Revd Duncan Strathie
Vicar of Moseley
Current Coronavirus Guidance
From Sunday 5th June we will resume offering communion in two kinds, both the bread and the wine. Receiving the wine is entirely optional; the Church of England has been clear throughout the pandemic that communion in one kind (i.e. just the bread) is complete communion. Those distributing communion will continue to wear a face covering. Intincting our wafer is not permitted for hygiene reasons.
Please be aware of the updated NHS guidance on covid symptoms and do not come to church if you are feeling unwell.
If you wish to wear a face covering please do so - masks are available at the welcome desk.
Please be sensitive to those who may prefer some space around them.
