Every Second, Third, Fourth Sunday at 9:30 a.m. for 1hr
Church End Shustoke Birmingham
We are a very friendly, inclusive and relaxed congregation - there are usually around 20 of us at a service. When you come in, enter through the main door, the South door. Someone will be inside to welcome you before a service. However, if they're not, they soon will be. You can sit anywhere in the main pews - you won't be taking anyone's seat!
Most of our services are Holy Communion, other than a first Sunday which is a service of Morning Prayer. Our orders of service explain everything you need to know but people around you will help you if needed. There is no way to get anything wrong in a church service. We have an order of service which guides you through what is said and we will sing hymns, all the words are printed in a hymn book. If you don't know the tune you do not need to join in immediately, hopefully you'll pick it up as we go along. You will also hear readings from the Bible and the Priest or a Reader will talk about the readings we hear. The sermon is usually around 7-10 minutes long. There will also be a time of prayer, when we pray for our world, our churches, our community and all those who are struggling or who have died.
We currently don't offer any children's groups but children are very welcome. We have toys for children to use during the service and even some jobs for them to do if they'd like to take part. The congregation at St Cuthbert's is made up of people of all ages, we are one big family.
We always finish with tea, coffee and biscuits or cake. We'd love to get to know you so if you're able please do stay.
