    A Prayer for these times:

    God you made us for relationship, with one another and with you.  We have perhaps lately over-asserted our independence, our desire to take back control, our individual rights; we have brandished individual freedom as an unqualified principle without really thinking it through.

    As we now find ourselves more isolated than we meant, we pray that you will face us with the loneliness that our society had created in its rush. As we feel a tender shock at this imposed solitude, prompt us to pray for everyone for whom isolation is a normal feeling.  Deepen our sympathy and alertness for those who are lonely or overlooked when the world rushes on.  In the frustration of lock-down, may your ironic Spirit overwhelm us with a sense of inter-connection.  In the ache of missing people, help us rejoice in our inter-dependence.  As we fast from friendly contact, turn our sorrow into prayer and gratitude for the invisible people who keep us connected: those hi-vis utility workers; telecommunications and software engineers; cleaners; delivery drivers and warehouse managers; food growers and suppliers; broadcasters….[see who else comes to mind and uphold them before God]

    In our most unexpected Lent wilderness, remind us how dreadfully dull independence is, and how glorious, rich and full is inter-dependence.

    We pray through Jesus, who came to be with us, in all our weakness and hunger. 

    Amen.

    A Message from David

     

    Welcome to the All Saints Kings Heath website.

    How I wish we could welcome you to our Church services and Café as normal.

     Along with Archbishop Justin and many churches around the land, candles will be lit in the windows at 7pm proclaiming the Biblical assertions that “love is stronger than death, it’s passion fierce as the grave” (Song of Solomon) and that God’s “light shine’s in the darkness and the darkness has not overcome it.” (St John’s Gospel)

    Any requests for prayer or conversation can be made via this website, or calling David, your Vicar, on (0121) 444 0260.

    We celebrate the goodwill of many neighbours, of diverse beliefs and backgrounds, looking out for each other in creative ways.

    Below is a prayer for any, like, me, who is necessarily self-isolating at the moment.

    With love for our remarkable neighbourhood,

    David

    The Revd Canon David Warbrick

    Vicar of All Saints Kings Heath, Birmingham

     

     

     

    Lent is a time when many people, not only for religious reasons, give something up or fast. Fasting gives time to delve into our normal longings, usually quickly satisfied, to see what they are made of. It is a time when we rediscover how precious ordinary things are. There is a big difference between choosing to fast and having hunger imposed on us, but even so, this time of hunger for friendship can still be a time of growth, wisdom and deepened gratitude. Perhaps it can be a time for a deepened sense of connection also with those whom we do not know, but make our normal life possible.


     

    God you made us for relationship, with one another and with you. We have perhaps lately over-asserted our independence, our desire to take back control, our individual rights; we have brandished individual freedom as an un-qualified principle without really thinking it through.

    As we now find ourselves more isolated than we meant, we pray that you will face us with the loneliness that our society had created in its rush. As we feel a tender shock at this imposed solitude, prompt us to pray for everyone for whom isolation is a normal feeling. Deepen our sympathy and alertness for those who are lonely or overlooked when the world rushes on. In the frustration of lock-down, may your ironic Spirit overwhelm us with a sense of inter-connection. In the ache of missing people, help us rejoice in our inter-dependence. As we fast from friendly contact, turn our sorrow into prayer and gratitude for the invisible people who keep us connected: those invisible hi-viz utility workers; telecommunications and software engineers; cleaners; delivery drivers and warehouse managers; food growers and suppliers; broadcasters….[see who else comes to mind and uphold them before God]

    In our most unexpected Lent wilderness remind us how dreadfully dull independence is,

    and how glorious, rich and full is inter-dependence.

    We pray through Jesus who came to be with us, in all our weakness and hunger.

    Amen.

    Arranged Visits: If you want to arrange a visit, perhaps for a school group, please in the first instance contact the Church Office (Contact details down this page).

      

    Vehicular entrance to all All Saints buildings is by a new access road to the left of the Medical Centre; parking is behind the old Church Hall.  There is no direct pedestrian access across the site from the new car park to the church, except on Sundays from the car park: to access the church, go along the new access drive past the Medical Centre to Vicarage Road; turn left along Vicarage Road to the Village Square. Walk across the Village Square to the main door.
