Christian Aid is one of the charities that St Mary's and St Anne's support. This year, Christian Aid Week is focussing on the climate emergency, which is one of the greatest injustices we face. They say that people living in poverty fight the worst of the climate crisis every day.
From drought to flooding, climate change robs people of control over their lives. Extreme weather means many struggle to survive with no reliable source of water. A gift can help a community build an earth dam, so that when rains do come they have the water they need to live. A reliable source of water will help families withstand drought or relentless rainfall.
Every gift, however small, will help.
You can donate to our on line giving page for Christian Aid here.
Becoming a single parish
After a period of prayerful reflection and consultation, our PCCs took the unanimous decision in December 2019 that our two parishes should merge into one to better facilitate ministry and mission within Moseley. The formal draft scheme for the merger of our two parishes has been published by the Church Commissioners for consultation. The scheme summary states:
The Birmingham Diocesan Mission and Pastoral Committee has prepared a draft Pastoral Scheme for
the union of the parish of Moseley, Saint Mary and the parish of Saint Anne, Moseley being the two parishes, which comprise the area of the benefice of Moseley, Saint Mary and Saint Anne;
the parish church of the parish of Moseley, Saint Mary and the parish church of the parish of Saint Anne, Moseley to both be parish churches of the new parish;
Anyone may make representations for or against all or any part of the draft Scheme (please include the reasons for your views) preferably by email or by post to reach the Commissioners no later than midnight on Monday 24 May 2021. Please send your representation to email@example.com or letter marked for the attention of Katie Lowe, Pastoral Division, Church Commissioners, Church House, Great Smith Street, LONDON SW1P 3AZ.
Alleluia Christ is risen! He is risen indeed alleluia!
It is good to welcome you to this website of the dynamic and vibrant community that worships in the two parish churches in Moseley - St Anne’s and St Mary’s. We are an open and inclusive, wide-ranging group of Christians who meet together to worship God, encourage one another and who are sent out to live the love of Jesus Christ.
Our congregations regularly contain five generations worshipping together and in both churches you will receive a warm welcome, the opportunity to worship God, to be challenged and encouraged through his word and to make new friends. In these times of pandemic restrictions we are operating blended worship - with congregations present in St Mary’s but also with the services being live-streamed across multiple platforms. Please see our weekly bulletin for details of how to access these if you are not yet able to join us in person.
With the warmer days, brighter evenings and the celebration of Easter, it is feeling like we are heading in the right direction after a terrible year of hardship, deprivation and loss. Our church communities offer silent spaces for private reflection, online socialising and opportunities to worship God together and praise him for his love and goodness which never fail.
Thank you for stopping by to read. I hope to welcome you in person very soon. Please contact our office if you have any questions.
With Easter joy and warm best wishes,
Revd Duncan Strathie
Vicar of Moseley
