St Peter's Crabbs Cross is a small Victorian church with a catholic tradition. It was a chapel of ease to Feckenham church when built and has "travelled" between other parishes as such, until it became a parish church in 1980. It was finally consecrated in its centenary year: 1996. It is now the centre of the united benefice of Christ the King Redditch.
The building is uninspiring from without, but was once described by a visitor as "continental" within!
We are a welcoming church to all ages. We look to the bishops of Ebbsfleet for our pastoral and spiritual needs and guidance. We engage in pilgrimage, both young and old to the Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham and take part in youth events across the West Midlands organised by the Society of the Holy Cross, Forward in Faith and Ebbsfleet. The parish Sung Mass is the centre of our worship and all ages are welcome at the celebration. We have a strong altar serving team, but worship is in no way regimented, but it is dignified. Our church community has affiliated Scouts, Guides, Cubs, Brownies, Beavers and Rainbows.
The church hall is used by a Pre-school group daily and in the evening by our uniformed organisations; there is a separate HQ for Scouts adjacent to the church.
Social events are part of our life together and a renewed effort is being made of late to increase the number we hold during the year.
The worshipping community has a good feel and we know how to laugh and enjoy ourselves.
We are a welcoming community, why not visit us?
