Please see our Contacts Page.
We are a Bible based, Holy Spirit focused, evangelical Church in the village of Barston, near Knowle and Solihull, in the West Midlands, UK
We offer you a warm welcome to our services, in which we combine the best of both traditional and modern worship. Our aim is that in every service there will be something for everyone.
Sunday Services start at 10:30am and finish by 12 noon followed by coffee, fellowship and Prayer Ministry. Children have their own time of teaching in small groups except for the All Age Service where they are involved.
St Peter's church, Bickenhill, dates from the 12th century although little remains from that period. Alterations took place in the 14th century and, in the late 15th century, the north chapel and west tower were added.
There was a major restoration in the first half of the 19th century with the floor being relaid, pews added, repairs made to the churchyard and the south walls of the chancel and nave being demolished and rebuilt. The spire was struck by lightning in 1876 and rebuilt 10 years later.
The church registers date from 1558 and copies are available at Solihull Heritage & Local Studies Service.
Church services are at 10 am on a Sunday.
