Church of England Diocese of Birmingham St. Peter Balsall Common

St Peter Balsall Common

St Peter's Church stands on the edge of the builtup area of our village but aims to be a heart of the community through its social and community activities, its worship, and its friendship to all.  In so doing, we hope we demonstrate the values of Christianity and will inspire others to join us.

During the Coronavirus Lockdown, our church building is closed during the week, but our hearts are open and we have moved online! Watch and take part in our services .... or follow the links and updates on Facebook and Twitter ... or email [email protected] for our weekly newsletter.

We are now open for our 9:30 services, (or at 11:00, when there is an online Switch Service at 9:30), and for private prayer or to leave donations for Helping Hands foodbank  at 10:30 on Wednesdays.

Obviously, all our other activities have had to be suspended but we hope to resume them all once this is over! But we might keep some of the new things going if people like, especially our use of live-streaming on youtube and the puppets!

We have a safeguarding policy and pages on our own website which link to other sources of support and to our Safeguarding team, who will be happy to advise or help if we can! The Diocese of Birmingham’s safeguarding pages contain vital links and information including contacts for the Diocesan Safeguarding Advisor (DSA). If you are concerned that a child or adult has been harmed or may be at risk of harm please contact the DSA. If you have immediate concerns about the safety of someone, please contact the police and your local authority Children or Adults Services.

We are working on this problem with the website developers! Bear with us, but do come and try us in person!)</span>
