Twenty seven years, three months and twenty one days after the old St Mary’s church closed its doors, we’re thrilled to tell you that the new St Mary’s will be open for worship on Easter Sunday 2014. The last few decades have told a long an eventful story of Wythall’s Parish Church, but the next chapter to be written is sure to be a joyful one, and we hope that you’ll be part of it with us.
The new church building, built as part of The Coppice School’s expansion, has been designed with both functionality and beauty in mind. The build incorporates the church, a large new hall, a kitchen and meeting rooms, with partitions allowing flexible use throughout the week. Our prayer is that it will both inspire prayer and worship and be a rich resource for the community for years to come.
At present we’re busy preparing a whole season of “welcome events”, which will include:
- Our first service on Easter Sunday (20th April, 10.30am)
- Open Day
- Concert in aid of Christian Aid / Acorns Charity
- Regular café on Wednesday mornings
- History Exhibition
Watch out for more information in the coming weeks – we do hope you’ll come and see our new church and yours.
