About Us

Welcome to the Parish Church of St John.

We are a lively worshipping fellowship in the heart of the community of Walsall Wood. We would be delighted to welcome you.  

We believe in a church which welcomes and serves all people in the name of Jesus Christ; which is scripturally faithful; which seeks to proclaim the Gospel afresh for each generation; and which, in the power of the Holy Spirit, allows people to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Jesus Christ.  

We offer a range of worship activities which reflects a breadth of spirituality: from our family-friendly Sunday morning Holy Communion, where the children join us partway through; to the lively monthly All Age Service or Morning Worship,   Also, for busy families, "Messy Church"is held monthly on a Saturday morning.

St John's seeks to be an outward-facing church community.   We have regular contact with our local primary schools and an excellent close partnership with St John's Primary School.

Members of St John's are actively encouraged to take a full part in the life of the church, through involvement in worship, organising social and outreach activities, and membership of teams working to develop the church's mission and ministry.

St John's is blessed with a wonderful modern Community Hall, provided for us through the generosity of a local charitable trust. Many of our social events take place in the Hall, which is also used by a range of community groups. The Hall is also available for Children's parties, Baptism parties, etc.  

At the heart of Walsall Wood since 1837, our church has undergone many changes over the years but we are still pleased to welcome many families as they bring their children to be Christened (Baptised)  or to celebrate the joy of marriage. We also seek to offer pastoral support at the painful times of life, such as sickness or bereavement. 

We honour, with grateful thanks, the traditions which have nurtured us as we look enthusiastically to the future. Thank you for visiting this web site. Why not come and visit us in person.

You will be made most welcome.
