20.6.22 Planning Application: 21/1720 – Field Adjacent the Duckery, Chapel Lane

Update (8.8.22):  This application has still not gone to planning so there is still time for people to let Walsall Council have their comments on proposal for the construction of a battery storage facility including 28 energy storage units which is intended to be on the site for around 40 years.  

If you want to know more details about the application, please click on the link below which will take you direct to Walsall Council’s Planning website and enter 21/1720 to access the reports:

With the increase in infections, if you wish to attend one of our services, please click here for information on what happens at our services - thank you.     If you prefer to worship at home, then please look at our "Situation during Covid" page to find postings from the Vicarage.

If you wish to attend the church for private prayer at another time, then please contact the Parish Office  on email or leave a voicemail on 0121 357 1390 to arrange so that somebody can let you in.

As from 19 July 2021, Government legal restrictions may have been lifted, but we would appreciate people continuing to wear face masks in church in order to reassure other people who are vulnerable or nervous. 

Hand sanitiser will continue to be available and we will continue social distancing in church with some pews still roped off.  Any changes will be introduced slowly so that people know what is happening.  The church will continue to be cleaned down after any services.

The church is now hoping to catch up on Baptisms and other events that had to be postponed due to Covid.

Updates will be on the Coronovirus page of the website or you can contact the Parish Office  on email or leave a voicemail on 0121 357 1390.  As soon as these restrictions are lifted, we will update this page fully.

Donations to St Margaret's Church

There is now a new way to donate to St Margaret's Church using "Donate Now" set up by the Diocese of Lichfield to help their churches.  Their Finance Team, with help from a local software company, Data Developments, have put a Donate Now button on the Diocese website.

If you would like to make a donation to St Margaret’s Church, then click on the link to the Donate Now page, after you have clicked the button, you can enter your details and can choose St Margaret’s from the drop-down list of churches. 

In addition, there is a Gift Aid option as well as an option for donors to cover the transaction cost if they want to.  As is the case with Contactless and Giving Direct, funds go into the Diocesan bank account as the registered charity and are then passed on to St Margaret’s as soon as possible along with a report showing when the donations were made. 

Many Thanks

If you are looking for details on Worship at Home, the digital resources of the Church of England or a variety of prayers, then please see the "Coronovirus" Page for more details.

Parish Magazine - Website Edition

It has now been decided to attach an abridged version of the latest version of the St Margaret's Parish Magazine to the website and can be downloaded from the 'Parish Magazine' page. 

Full copies of the magazine can still be obtained from the church for 50p per copy.

Due to the current interest in the proposals for Great Barr Hall, Rev Rutter has put together some information on the history of the Lunar Society for those people who would like to know a little more about them.
