Solihull Parish has something for everyone through the three churches of the Parish.


Here you can find out how to engage with the Church at whatever stage you find yourself on the faith journey. 

 

Whether you are a regular at one of our churches, a newcomer to the area, or are just wanting to know more, there is almost certainly something for you.

  • Throughout the parish there are many regular activities and events for children, young people, adults - indeed all members of the family.

  • Some are held weekly and others less frequently, but there is something for everyone.

  • Click on the "Church Groups" button to see what's available.

 

 

Social Events : Solihull Parish isn't all about worship, care and learning. We also have a thriving and vibrant social calendar.

 

Church Groups : There is so much going on in the parish, we've created a directory where you can search for what you might be interested in.  There are over fifty activities going on, so there must be something for you!

 


Families

The three churches in the parish extend a particularly warm welcome to families. We offer a wide selection of Sunday services tailored to the needs of families with children aged 0-11, and there are also many activities which take place during the week. Children over 11 can attend other activities for young people.
 

 
Social Events

Solihull Parish isn't all about worship and learning. We also have a thriving and vibrant social calendar.

Social events cater for all ages and specific ages, with some events especially aimed at younger people or adults, as well as many family occasions and all age functions.
 
They may be held parish wide, or with the focus on a particular church centre or interest group. 
 
All our churches think that it is an important part of church life to have the opportunity to meet on a social level.  So we make sure there are many occasions across the parish to do so. These are not fund raising but fun raising events and as such they are chances for the members of all the congregations to meet with each other.
 
Examples of our fun raising activities are pot luck lunches, a barn dance, barbeques, beetle drives and summer fêtes.  We are of course open to new ideas and suggestions, and of course to offers of help.
Children

There's lots going throughout the parish for children and their families - from midweek groups like Prams to Preschool Praise and Play and Friday Fun @ 4 and All Age Services. There are also one off events like the Bright and Light Party and Journey to the Stable.
