What to expect

10am Sunday Service

Our 10 am service at St Philip's and St James' is a time when we worship together as a united family. We seek to make our service appropriate for all ages. We use a variety of styles and we are especially welcoming to families with children.

After the service we meet together to have refreshments, catch up, and get to know each other.

We have children's and youth groups offering age appropriate worship opportunities and learning activities during the 10 am service.

6.30pm Sunday Service

This is a safe, traditional and friendly place, with a quiet spiritual core. We have a small, friendly and committed congregation, and this service is a great place to come together and encounter God.

10.45am Wednesday Service of Holy Communion 

at St George & St Teresa Catholic Church

This is a small, quiet, welcoming, and caring space where we meet with each other and God, and come around the communion table together. Our friends at St George & St Teresa have invited us to use their church while St Philip's is unavailable during the building project. 


Breakfast Church takes place on the first Sunday of the month, 8.45am at St James' Bentley Heath, and lasts for an hour. 

Breakfast Church is for people of all ages, it is relaxed, interactive and fun. We start with breakfast (cereal, pastries, juice, tea & coffee) and meet around tables.
