The pandemic has been difficult for all of us, but especially for those on the margins of our society, those vulnerable and those in need. The work of foodbanks is essential for many people in the community. This year for our harvest services which will be held on Sunday 3rd October, we will have a food collection which will go to Sparkhill Food bank. Their work makes such a difference to those who use it in a wide area of the city.

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, the opportunity to worship God, to be challenged and encouraged through his word and to make new friends. In these times of pandemic restrictions we are operating blended worship - with congregations present in both our churches and with some of St Mary’s services being 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.
We are used to celebrating the major Christian festivals like Easter and Christmas and even a day off for Pentecost at the end of May each year. We are also familiar with Church seasons such as Advent and Lent. Sometimes the festivals and seasons come quickly, one after the other, other times they stretch for a long a period. Nine weeks after Easter comes Trinity Sunday when we focus on God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit and so begins the season of ‘Sundays after Trinity’ which runs all the way to end of October. Each festival and season have a liturgical colour and these Sundays are known as Green Sundays. This is useful as our readings week by week take us through Bible passages that help us to attend to our faith, nurture our spiritual growth and generally tidy up the way we live as Christian disciples. Green is appropriate as it reinforces notions of growth and cultivation as we attend to the garden of our faith.
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
