Christian Aid Week

Sunday 14 to Sunday 21 May

Christian Aid week is here and there are several activities. Our focus is on refugees. Please visit the Christian Aid website to download games and activities for your children. We are always in need of new house-to-house collectors. The more roads we cover in Moseley, the more funds we make for Christian Aid! Please collect a pack from the table, or speak to Julia Kilby 449 0559. Thank you.

Thank you from Trish Everett

A huge thank you to everyone for the gifts and celebration after the service on 30th April. Special thanks to Angela for the lovely cake she made. It has been a privilege to serve as Churchwarden for the last six years and I have enjoyed every minute of it. I would like to thank everyone who has helped and supported me, I couldn't have done it without you.

Black Tie Dinner followed by 'After-Party'

This is in aid of all the great work that is done by St Anne's and a number of people in the local community for those most in need, especially the homeless. St Anne's manages a night shelter over the winter period which provides weekend food, warmth and cover for the homeless. It also holds a Monday lunch club and provides hospitality for all those alone at Christmas. ThIs work is not particularly well known or supported across the local community, and the event is intended to help raise its profile and hopefully provide some much needed financial support to boot.
