In 1997 both the parishes of St James Hill Top and St Paul's Golds Hill entered in to a new arrangement where they would work closer together, with one minister overseeing them. So the Benefice of St James with St Paul West Bromwich was formed.
This arrangement worked well for many years, as the churches supported each other, and worked together, and shared a common goal, to love and serve their communities.
After 20 years of working together in this form, and under our last two Vicars bring brought closer together, the Diocese of Lichfield has offered to bring us closer together still, and asked us if we would like to become one Parish, to share one Parochial Church Council.
This would mean us working more closer together, and really praying for each other and sharing our common goal more, as we work together in new and exciting ways.
So by the end of this year, we will have joined together to become one parish: The Parish of St James and St Paul's West Bromwich.
We are aware this is a mouth full, so to keep it short, our Web sight, Social Media and email addresses will be able to be found at sjpchurch.
