About Us

We bid you a warm welcome to the Parish of St.John the Evangelist, Kates Hill. We are an open and welcoming worshipping community for the young and old alike and you are very welcome to come and join us any time. Whether just visiting or looking for a new family to worship with, our doors are open to you

St.John's Church has been a centre for Christian worship and service in the Anglican style for over 170 years on Kates Hill. Since the closure of the church in 2002 worship has continued with an interruption in the Parish Hall. As Christians we see Christ as the foundation of the Church and the people of Christ are the church, not the buildings.

The future of the burial ground at St. John's is that it will continue to have a separate identity from the old building and are at no risk from any changes it may undergo. Efforts by the local community have made the churchyard more accessible than it has been in many years. So if you haven't been for a wander through our beautiful Churchyard with its magnificent views of Dudley, the Castle, the surrounding counties, TV masts at Sutton Coldfield and the BT Microwave towers at Newhall Street and Pye Green (15 miles north), be sure to visit soon and receive a 'Bostin' Black Country welcome
