At @SPCBalsall we are making arrangements to commemorate Prince Philip’s contribution to the life of the nation. St Peter’s will be open for private prayer between 10am and 5pm during national mourning.
The Government has advised that in order to observe current Covid-19 precautions, physical condolence books should not be offered at this time.
The National CofE website is hosting a national book of condolence, which can be accessed via the following link,
The book is open to any individual or church communities who wish to sign and record a message.
“Daily Hope”, a free national telephone line, offers music, prayers and reflections as well as services from the Church of England at the end of the phone, 24 hours a day on 0800 804 8044

This is the homepage for the church of St Peter Balsall Common. We are a friendly, inclusive neighbourhood church with services, faith & social events for all ages & life-stages.
In these pages we set out our values and activities, tell people who we are and what we are about, and invite you to join in. You can click on the boxes at the bottom of the page for 'newsletters' and forthcoming events. Where there is different colour text, or sometimes underlined text we provide 'hot links' that go directly to the information.
More information at http://www.Facebook.com/SPCBalsall where you will find updates about sudden and unexpected changes of plan, as well as reminder of regular and special events and regular updates also appear on www.twitter.com/spcbalsall . If you prefer a longer read, our monthly Magazine 'The Key' is also now available on-line as a .pdf file! You can read it here online! Please let us know if you do, so we shall know that this is valued, and might remember to update it more regularly!
St Peter's stands on the south-west edge of the growing 'village' of Balsall Common, but aspires to be at the heart of the community and to bring the message of Christ to all who live nearby. We have social activities for all ages, including 'mothers and toddlers', older people, and young people. We extend a welcome to all who want to learn more about our faith, or to join our activity. You may already have come to one of our social events, or have had a visit one Saturday in our 'Say One for Me' programme - but if you have not and don’t know us, we’d love to meet you!
Our church has tried to be accessible to everyone. We have a level floor (no steps!), comfortable chairs, a modern audiovisual and livestream system and acoustic loop (and wifi!) and a bright interior! As far as possible, we seek to be Inclusive, Dementia friendly and Aware of autism (neurodiversity).
We hope our services combine a warm welcome and an informal feel with proper reverence and worship and activities for Youth & Children. With the local Methodist Church, we also provide outreach services at the Harper Fields Care Home, on one Friday morning every month. (During COVID we have been offering a weekly “Online” service by Zoom, which has been well attended by the residents, who asked for it.) We do not believe that 'church' is only for Sunday, so have lots of things for different age groups on a variety of weekdays as well.
Please feel free to visit our church and become part of all this, too!
We take issues of child protection (and the protection of vulnerable adults) very seriously. If you have a concern, you can find our policies and contact details here.
