Blakeley Green House Good Friday Service

There will be a service at 12:00noon on Good Friday by the cross in the garden of Blakeley Green House, led by Rev. Liz Rathbone. Tea, coffee and hot cross buns will be served in the main house afterwards. All are welcome. After the refreshments, a group will process back to Christ The King Church for their afternoon service. However, you may also wish to proceed on to Saint Paul’s for the Hour by the Cross.


Annual Parish Meeting

A quick reminder that the Annual Parish Meeting is tonight, 7:30pm at the Parish Centre, Upper Street, Tettenhall.  All are welcome.


Church and School together

There are lots of different occasions when Saint Paul’s Church and Saint Paul’s Primary School work together, including events such as the summer fayre and activites over Christmas.
You can get involved in these through the Friends of Saint Paul’s (the PTA).  You do not have to be a parent to get involved with the Friends.
The Summer Fayre is being planned now and members of the church are invited to work together with parents and staff from the school to further our links.  To get involved or find out more, speak to Jo Perry or Vicky Murry.
