Praise & Play

During the lockdown, Linda and Sue bring Praise & Play to your homes on Friday mornings at 9.30am with the familiar format of songs, a story, craft and prayers.  The YouTube link will go live shortly before 9.30am or you can watch on Facebook. 

During normal circumstances, Praise & Play takes place every Friday in the main hall of the Oliver Bird Hall from 9.30am onwards. A time of fun and fellowship for parents and carers and their children aged 0-5. Come along and chat, play, eat biscuits, sing action songs and explore a bible story. No need to book but if you want to know more email Linda Hicks or phone on 0121 270 7390.

Messy Church

Due to Covid-19 restrictions, Messy Church in person is currently suspended, however we have been been able to do a virtual Messy Church. Full details are in the April Edition of the Families Newsletter.

Join us for some Messy Fun with crafts, celebration time and hot tea. Usually on the second Friday of the month from 4-6pm at St Helen’s Church, St Helen’s Road B91 2DA.

The latest dates and times can be found our Facebook page.


Due to Covid-19 restrictions, Oasis is currently suspended

Come along and talk about the really pressing issues of modern day living that impact on Christian family life. A safe space to share time with friends and build relationships. There’s plenty of good coffee (or tea) posh biscuits and brioche. Don’t worry if you need to bring a little person with you as there will be toys (and people) for the children to play with while you enjoy a drink and a chat.
Tuesdays in term time, 9.15-10.15am in the main hall of the Oliver Bird Hall. Just come along or for more information email Linda Hicks or phone on 0121 270 7390.

Parish Puppets

The Puppets at a social event in the OBH.

Solihull Parish Puppets is a group of people who love working together to plan, rehearse and finally perform sketches and songs using a variety of puppets, including arm rod puppets, Sockettes (sock puppets) and stick puppets. We meet on Thursdays at St Helen’s Chapel, St Helen’s Road, B91 2DA, 6.30-7.30pm during term-time to plan and rehearse our performances. We have a lot of fun together, developing our skills and trying out new ideas. We are particularly grateful to members of our church who have helped with recording sketches and making costumes and props.

To date, we have performed at the different churches within the Parish, but would be interested in performing at other locations too. We are currently a small group of eight, but would love to have more people join us, especially as our young adult members prepare to move on to university, for example. If you are interested in becoming a member of Solihull Parish Puppets, or feel that you could support us in an alternative creative way, then please do get in touch with Ruth Sabbagh, on 0121 705 3088 or 0791 2626315 or alternatively, with Linda Hicks, on 0121 270 7390 or 07838 670772.
