Click here for further details.Read more
(JSP, ManUp, etc.) of up to six people are being invited to meet for fellowship, prayer and Bible study/reflection in gardens with appropriate social distancing and hygiene arrangements. (others may be able to join in virtually where numbers are greater). Of course these will be weather permitting; as we wait for the time when small groups can begin to meet once again in homes or church.
A Zoom Meeting Alternative will be available for those who are having to self isolate or wish to remain at home.
(People are invited to download the Zoom app for computers or smart phones and a meeting link will be provided for each occasion – do get in touch if you need support in doing this)
Giving in whatever form is so important to the Church and I want to say a big “Thank you” for continuing to support St Clements at this difficult time and for your patience.
However, at this present time we are finding it difficult to pay cash into the Church account and we would ask anyone who usually pays by cash to consider, if possible, providing a cheque to cover your giving. We have made arrangements to send cheques by post direct to the bank for processing. (Please use one of your envelopes as this provides your bespoke number for us to track.)
If at all possible, we would love you to consider giving directly into the Church account through a regular standing order with your bank, or by bank transfer if you do internet banking. This enables church members to sustain regular giving, whether or not the congregation are able to gather. It also saves money as the church has to pay a fee for the envelope scheme. (Please contact Ann Davey or myself if you need advice in doing that.)
Details for the Church bank account are as follows:
Account name: St Clements PCC. Sort Code: 20-07-84 Account No: 90061662
In the meantime, if you have any envelopes, please would you would post them through Ann Davey’s letterbox (181 Blandford Avenue), or even let Stuart have them I should be grateful. Do get in touch if you need them collecting.
For those who wish to continue with the envelope scheme, I will let you have your new envelopes as soon as available.
In the meantime, thank you all.
Alison Haywood (St Clements Stewardship and Gift-Aid Coordinator)
As the minister of St Clements, Castle Bromwich, I believe this an important moment for all Christians to openly declare their concern for justice, and, whatever their race or ethnicity to stand in solidarity with black communities in their grief and justifiable anger and fear.
Jesus would undoubtedly assert, “Black lives matter!”
Those of us who are white must learn to understand and echo that cry with our black brothers and sisters, and to change and reflect the truth of it in our lives and institutions.
Rev Stuart Carter
St Clements, Castle Bromwich meets in quite a modern (1960s) multi-purpose building, originally constructed to be the Church Hall. What we lack in terms of a steeple or stained glass, we make up for in our congregation of about 60 people seeking to move forward in worship, discipleship and mission.
Our church serves a parish of about 12,000 people. A third live in Castle Bromwich and the remainder of the population come from the Smith’s Wood Community, an Urban Priority Area. Both communities are well represented in the congregation and its leadership.
Our worship is usually relaxed and informal (but still Church of England). Words are projected on a screen, and we have been exploring the use of multi-media in services. We use a variety of contemporary Christian worship songs alongside more traditional hymns.
We meet for worship on Sunday Mornings: 10.00am-11.30am
We also have a Midweek Communion Service on Wednesday mornings: 10.00 – 11.30a.m.

At St Clements, we want to maintain a safe environment for everyone, especially children, young people and vulnerable adults.
