Newtown and Lozells is a mile north of Birmingham City Centre. We are a diverse multi-cultural area and our membership reflects the vibrant, international nature of the area. We offer a warm welcome to all as we believe all are one in Christ. We also have halls and rooms for hire and. Our main Sunday services are at 10.30 am (St George’s) and 10.45 am (St Paul and St Silas). Enjoy your visit to our website and may the Lord bless you.

Jesus says, “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you are also to love one another. By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.” John 13:34-35

From the woman at the well to the women at the foot of the cross

We're nearly halfway through Lent now, and we're starting to look forward with anticipation to the extraordinary Easter message. Before that though, we still have lots of thinking and reflection to do.

Tarie gave us an important message in her sermon on Sunday. She warned us about being like the Israelites in the desert, allowing our problems to make us lose trust in God. Instead we should be like the Samaritan woman Jesus met at the well. We should bring our problems to Jesus, and our friends and family to him too.

This Sunday (26th March) is Mothering Sunday, and our readings are:

Old Testament – Psalm 34: 11-20

New Testament – Colossians 3: 12-17

Gospel – John 19:25-27

This short Gospel reading comes from Jesus' crucifixion, when he sees his mother at the foot of the cross.

See you at St. George's soon!

Being born again in Lent

We had another important sermon on Sunday. Rev. Nejib reminded of the importance of being 'born-again'. We should all live new lives as God's people now we have decided to follow Jesus. As it comes to the middle of the week, we pray that we all remember this message amid the busyness of our lives.

Do join us at 6pm on Wednesday in church for a short time of prayer and worship. All welcome. 

As part of your Lent reflections, you might like to read through our readings for this coming Sunday (19th March): 

Exodus 17:1-7

Romans 5:1-11

And the Gospel is John 4:5-42. 

In the meantime, enjoy this coming of spring. It feels like the world itself is being born again!
