Grateful Thanks  Rev'd Lindsey's Prayer Stool



Grateful thanks for your generous gift!

For those that weren't in church when I brought this beautiful prayer stool in to show you; here is an image of my purchase following my licensing and installation. 

It's seen many years of use and I'm very happy to add my knees (and prayers) to all those that have used it before me.


Thanks again,
Rev. Lindsey.

Black Five Steam Engine.

Who knew we had a lady Steam Engine Driver in our midst at St. Stephen’s?

Karen Thorp is the proud owner and keeper of this beautiful engine which, when not in use on the Diglis track, has pride of place in her sitting room.

Why don’t you catch up with Karen after one of our services if you want to learn more about her enthusiasm for all things steam!


A Prayer for the people of Ukraine


Bishop John has called on all in our diocese to pray for the people of Ukraine and for peace, and for the leaders of the West as they deliberate on how to respond to the terrible unprovoked aggression of Russia. He has invited people to use this prayer from the Dean for public worship and private intercession:


Lord of all the earth, be present with the people of Ukraine at this time of danger, fear, and conflict. Grant that wise and peaceable counsels may yet prevail, and give to all suffering nations the freedom they desire and deserve. We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

A little something from 1928

A little piece of a recipe book complied by parishioners of St Pauls, Hockley, Birmingham. (1928)

A Good Hint


Take equal parts of kindness, unselfishness and thoughtfulness, mix in an atmosphere of love, add a spice of usefulness, scatter a few grains of cheerfulness, season with smiles, stir with a good laugh. Success is certain.

Shared by Alistair Morris, Parishioner of St Stephens.
(Nephew of Rev Canon Ralph Stevens of St Paul's, Hockley)
