All Saints Church, Streetly.

All Saints’ Church is made up of a lively and articulate community of people who worship God in a variety of ways and seek to serve Him in the course of their daily lives. The theological perspective of the congregation is broadly liberal and we welcome all who come to worship with us.  We have a rich tradition that is reflected in our Eucharistic and choral services but we like exploring newer ways to worship as well - and not just on Sundays.   In addition, we enjoy being in fellowship with each other - the hall and church are often busy with church and community events.   The life of a church is far more than what happens within its walls and we try to demonstrate Christ's love in Streetly in a number of ways.  

All Saints’ Church is called …

- to be a loving, caring, welcoming community of faithful people following Jesus’ example;
- to be aware of the spiritual and pastoral needs of those in church and the wider Streetly community;
- to be ready to meet those needs with encouragement, care, support, love and tolerance.
 
We hope that you will want to learn more about us and we welcome you to contact us, or to simply come and see! 
 
Streetly Parish Church itself was built in 1908 on land given by Mr. Arthur Turner and Mr. B.T. Featherston of Maxstoke Castle. The foundation stone of the original church (now the South Aisle and the Lady Chapel), was laid on Saturday 5th December 1908, and the church was dedicated to All Saints on 27th May 1909.

It was originally designed as a Mission Church to serve the eastern part of Great Barr which remained the mother church and appointed a curate until Streetly parish was formed in 1918, though All Saints was licensed for weddings in 1911. The parish is in the Deanery of Walsall at the southern extremity of the Diocese of Lichfield.

The church was enlarged in 1953 - 4 to accommodate the growing population of Streetly. The foundation stone of the 1954 extension (which now includes the Nave, Chancel and Sanctuary), was laid on Saturday 5th December 1953, exactly 45 years to the day since the first foundation of the church.

Apart from a beautiful set of traditional stained glass windows, All Saints contains a number of attractive early features, including the stone Font and brass Ewer dating from 1909, the 1937 Oak Pulpit made by Messrs. Bridgeman's of Lichfield and the figured Oak Lectern, a gift of thanks offering for the recovery from war wounds of a young Streetly officer in 1916. The Processional Cross was given to the church in 1909. Other decorative and symbolic features have been added over the years.
