About Us

St Mary's Church has served the Selly Oak community as its local Anglican Parish Church since the 1860's. It is a place where God is worshipped, where faith in modern life can be explored and where people can bring their troubles and their joys. We are always pleased to welcome new people into our committees to help organise church life.

Children and young people are nurtured through the Junior Church and a number of lively youth organisations. Other activities such as concerts, discussion groups and ramble, suitable for all age groups take place. We are fortunate to welcome into our congregation students and clergy visiting from around the world to attend the University. Students preparing for the ministry regularly have an opportunity to share in leading worship and preaching as part of their training.
