We are delighted to announce that Revd Toby Crowe has been appointed as Vicar of St Johns Sparkhill and Christ Church Sparkbrook.   

The arrangements for Toby's institution and start date are to be confirmed.

Please pray for Toby, his wife Emma and children James and Amelia as they prepare to move to Sparkhill.

We are delighted to confirm that our worship will be back in the main church on Easter Sunday,
and we will continue each Sunday at 1030am

There is plenty of space to ensure we can meet safely.

At the same time we will continue to live stream our service through Zoom and Facebook live.
