Great Barr & Perry Hall online worship
As the District Sunday Morning Worship is only on the 1st & 3rd Sundays and current lockdown restrictions have re-closed our churches,
we are re-introducing our own online worship service on those weeks when there is no District service.
Details will appear above for the weeks when we are streaming our own online service.
The service will be streamed on the Great Barr Methodist Church Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/greatbarrmethodistchurch/
Birmingham Methodist District Sunday Worship
Due to the current restrictions our District will live stream Sunday worship on the 1st & 3rd Sunday of the month.

Orders of service for the district service will be published below nearer the time, although due to copyright issues the full order of service cannot be published on our website.
