St Alphege is a flourishing parish church at the heart of Solihull. The church has stood at the end of the High Street for over eight hundred years. Today it continues to be a place of worship, witness and service for the whole community. Our main building is a fine medieval Grade I listed church. You will find a warm welcome at St Alphege as well as a diverse range of services, events and activities.
Who is St Alphege?
Alphege is our patron saint, the holy person to whom the church is dedicated. He was an Anglo-Saxon bishop, made Archbishop of Canterbury in 1006. When captured by Danish forces, Alphege refused to allow the poor of England to pay his ransom and died at the hands of soldiers. He is a martyr and inspiration for the work of reconciliation and social justice.
What to expect at St Alphege
We strive to give our best to God in worship, through our liturgy, teaching and music. St Alphege uses the rich traditions of the Christian faith alongside elements of modern worship, offering services to suit all ages. The worship at St Alphege is centred around the Eucharist where we offer our worship to God, and bring to God the needs of the community and the wider world. Sunday is the high point of our worship, where we seek to encounter the transforming love of God and the presence of Jesus in the Bible, in the bread and wine of the Eucharist, and in each other.
