Worship in our Parish
Whether you are looking for a quiet space to pray, a place to bring your baby, a place to worship with your family, or a place to encounter the majesty and mystery of God, there is an opportunity to worship in Solihull almost every day of the year. Below are just some highlights of our offering:
Jigsaw at St Helen’s
All Age Worship at 4pm on the 3rd Sunday of the month. We’d love you to be part of Jigsaw: a time of worship, a Bible reading followed by a time to explore the passage in a range of different ways – by discussion, writing, drawing and colour, activity, craft, listening and silence. This service is perfect for those whose family commitments mean they might struggle with Sunday mornings
Choral Worship at St Alphege
Worship led by our world-class choirs, including boys, girls, ladies and men as well as St Alphege Singers, our voluntary choir. You can experience the beauty and joy of their singing at the 9.15am Parish Eucharist several times a month, and especially at the 11am Choral Eucharist every Sunday. We also maintain the English choral tradition in a contemplative setting, through the singing of Choral Evensong at 6.30pm on Sundays and Wednesdays in term time.
Weekday Eucharist at St Michael’s Chapel
A quiet, contemplative Eucharist in the peaceful and friendly setting of St Michael’s chapel, Bryanston Road. Celebrated each Wednesday at 10am followed by a time of coffee and conversation.
All Age Worship at St Alphege
On the 2nd Sunday of the month, the Junction and 9.15 Eucharists are combined for an All Age Eucharist in St Alphege church. A worship band leads us in contemporary songs. Young people often act as servers, and the teaching is especially suitable for children and families.
Messy Church meets at St Helen’s Church several times each term. It includes a time of craft, worship, a hot meal and lots of Messy fun for children and their families. To book and find out more look here.
Weekdays in St Alphege
Come and reflect in this ancient and holy space. Light a candle, say a prayer, or just rest in God’s presence. Morning Prayer is said in church at 9am (8.30am on Wednesdays in term time). The Eucharist is celebrated regularly in church each week: 9.30am on Monday and Tuesday, 10.30am on Thursday, and 9.30am on the 1st Saturday of each month. You will be made very welcome.
