10:30AM Every Sunday
Our main service.
Each weekday at church begins with Morning Prayer. Most of the time it's just a handful of people meeting in the small room. We read Psalms and passages from The Bible; discuss and pray for all kinds of global, community and personal issues. Morning Prayer lasts about 30 minutes unless discussion gets really interesting then it may go on. But you could pop in for 5 minutes on your way from dropping the children off at school or on your way to work. We all lead busy lives but it's good to give time to God at the start of a busy schedule. Try it. Even a couple of minutes in prayer gives the day a different feel.
Check the weekly notice sheet to be sure when Morning Prayer is happening. Sometimes we need to cancel and re-organise.
Andy Pandy's Stay and Play
Andy Pandy's - Mondays during school terms - 1.30 - 3.00pm
Andy Pandy's is a stay and play group for parent's/carers and children. Mike leads the group which makes him Andy Pandy even though he refuses to wear the blue and white striped suit.
Every week there is time for free-play; a craft activity; a Bible story; singing and a prayer. The charge is £1.20 per family. This covers the cost of a soft drink, biscuit and/or fruit for the children and a cup of tea for adults.
Every week we currently host around 15 children aged between a few months and rising 3 year olds, plus moms, dads, carers and grandmas. We've still got plenty of space. You are welcome. Come along and try if for yourself.
Solihull Striders & Strollers
10:30AM Alternate Tuesdays
Solihull Strollers & Striders is a group of people who enjoy walking. They meet on alternate Tuesday mornings at 10.30am at the church; go out on a planned, led walk then head back for a cup of tea and a biscuit. It's never too demanding but always good fun and great company. You can find out more by going to their webpage Solihull Striders & Strollers
A friendly and lively group who meet each Wednesday, in the Bluebell room, please do join us for a chat - there is always tea in the pot, coffee at hand and a biscuit or two.
After-School Sports Club
3:15PM Weekly (Term-time only)
An after-school club for Bishop Wilson pupils in Years 4, 5 and 6, the children are collected from the front reception of the school at 3:15pm. The club is a chance for the children to learn about Jesus while taking part in team activities such as basketball, dodgeball, football, fox tails and many more - ensuring that there is something for everyone. The club finishes at 4:30pm and the children will need to be collected from the church.
Knit and Natter Group
More than 20 ladies meet every Thursday to develop their knitting techniques; drink tea, eat cake and biscuits and chat.
Over the last couple of years the group has grown and grown and grown - but there's still plenty of room for more. Don't worry if you've never picked up knitting needles before. Many of the group were in just that position, but help, advice and tuition is available from the other members.
Knit Bitz has taken on all kinds of knitting challenges; garments for refugees; clothes for the premature baby unit at Heartlands Hospital; clothes for women's refuges and toys for children who visit their parents in prison. Currently they're knitting clothes for homeless people who will visit Christmas and New Year shelters; teddy bears for children being baptised at St Andrew's and angels for our Christmas nativity scene
Whatever your knitting skills are the conversations and company are good. It's informal, relaxed and fun.
3:15PM weekly during term time
SPLASH is an after-school group for Year 1 children at Bishop Wilson CofE Primary School. The group is led by Anna and Shirley, ably assisted by Mrs Hannah. The children play; eat snacks; enjoy craft activities and learn about the Bible. Anna and Shirley collect the youngsters from school at 3.15 and parents collect them from the church at 4.15. It's hard to believe that you can have so much fun in just 1 hour!
Sorry, there are no special events this week.
