St Peter / Balsall Common

We are open - even if Solihull is Locked Down, Church Worship is permitted! And for our usual services, we can welcome more than 6 people!

Happily, we are welcoming people to our Sunday 9:30 services! And if you have been joining us online during the National lockdown, you will be very welcome to join us in church over the coming months if that’s right for you. We do not intend to turn people away - we are all set up for an 'overflow' and can seat over 30 in church and more in the Hall. We have now restarted our Informal services, on the first 3 Sundays of the month, as well as the 10:30 midweek Wednesday morning communion .... and if you are still shielding, or otherwise ‘locked down’, in quarantine, or unable to come in person, each week we try to upload both our Sunday Eucharist and the ‘Informal’ service for that week to the Youtube Channel. Access is only via the link posted on our website on the Link page (Which you can go to directly using this Link!) (Nothing this week as all the team are otherwise busy or in holiday! Sorry.).

We have been asked to help spread the local advice on Covid - Balsall Common and Berkswell ARE in Solihull,  and the latest update for our area from Solihull Borough is available here: (Click on these  coloured words

St Peter's Balsall Common

This is the homepage for the church of St Peter Balsall Common. We are a friendly 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 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 . 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!

Ecochurch Icon

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 system and acoustic loop (and wifi!) and a bright interior! As far as possible, we seek to be 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. 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!

NB: Safeguarding

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.
