Solihull Parish 20s and 30s

The 20s and 30s group started in 2018 and has grown quickly. We bring people of our generation together for a mix of spiritual and social events. We provide support and prayer for another, as well as having a laugh in a relaxed environment. We’d love to meet you.

Some of our members have children, some don’t: so we have a mix of daytime (family friendly) and evening events. We come from all different backgrounds and are a fully inclusive group.

Past events have included a guest speaker on vocation from the Diocese of Oxford; a time of Bible Study looking at John’s Gospel; Drinks & Games in the Paramo Lounge; and even a Gin Tasting Party. We have an annual Christmas party and also a summer BBQ. If you’d like to get involved in the group ask in church or email Fr Sam.

Events for Autumn 2019:

Saturday 19th October 10am-3pm Day Trip to Worcester Cathedral. We plan to travel together to Worcester, enjoy the cathedral and have a guided library tour, a short time of worship together, then a pub lunch. 

Friday 20th December, 7pm onwards Annual Christmas Party, 17 Church Hill Close. Mulled wine/apple, mince pies and Christmas-themed antics.

The Inbetweeners

We are a group aimed at anyone who for whatever reason maybe age, gender or work life, doesn’t fit in to some of the existing groups. Many of us work during the day, and so can’t get to certain services and events! So we started this group up as a place to meet, socialise and pray together.

If you would like to find out when our next event is, or know anyone who might like to join us contact Lynne Groutage (Group Convenor) or give your details to the Parish Office. It will be lovely to see anyone who would like to join us and see how this group evolves. 

Prayer Group on Tuesdays

The St. Alphege Prayer Group meets every Tuesday at 10.00am in the Upper Chapel. The meeting lasts approximately 45 minutes and is followed by a time of fellowship and coffee in the Oliver Bird Hall. We normally have about 12-14 attendees.

After a short varied introduction we pray for current issues, worldwide, local and personal. We are always grateful to experience the wonderful ways in which God answers our prayers.
All newcomers are made most welcome. If you’d like to get in touch email Anne Rock or phone on 0121 704 2355.

House Groups

There are house groups across all three of our churches. They meet for prayer, fellowship and study. If you would like to join one, ask the priest/minister in the church you attend and they will be able to link you up with one, or get in touch with the Parish Office.

St Alphege Wives’ Fellowship

Our programme choices are suited to a small membership (a core of around 20), and attracting visitors, as it is locally-based and easily accessible.
Monthly Fellowship Walks are meant to be sociable and healthy without being over-strenuous. We meet at 10.30am and finish well in time for lunch (optional) at a nearby public house or eatery where non-walkers can join us. (No charge for walking).
Visits to nearby places and events of interest, meeting at 10.30am at the venue, e.g. gardens and nurseries, craft fairs, cookery demos,exhibitions, tours of heritage buildings including churches etc.
Friday evening meetings at West Midlands Bridge Club, Warwick Road, Solihull with speakers at 6.30pm or 7.00pm. (Levy of £4 for non-members and £3 for members to include tea/coffee with cake or pastry). Occasionally we meet at the Oliver Bird Hall for an activity evening.
Special events at the Bridge Club include our Advent/Christmas lunch (Friday in early December), seasonal afternoon teas and the AGM and supper (Friday in early July).
Full membership Annual Subs are £8 (covers room hire, speakers’ fees, postage/stationery, affordable charity donations).
