Welcome

  • Welcome to the Gornal and Sedgley Team Ministry website. 

    Our parish includes All Saints' Church in Sedgley, St Andrew's in The Straits and St Peter's in Upper Gornal.

    We've been a team ministry since 2005: team working allows us to provide spiritual and pastoral care to a wide area including  Upper Gornal, the Straits and Sedgley.

    We look forward to meeting you at one of the churches in our parish soon.

    TERESA CLEARS HER RELATIVE DORIS'S GRAVE 

    Teresa Webb travelled over to visit us from her home in Northamptonshire at our coffee morning on 7/9/18.

    She is on the trail of her great grandparents' graves - Martha Jane Jackson and John Jackson. 

    Thanks to Dorothy Inett's records and a plan of Gospel End Street graveyard now kept at Dudley Archives, we were able to locate their daughter Doris's grave, which is clearly marked and bears an inscription. She died in 1940 aged 27 years. 

    We think it's possible that her grandparents are buried in an adjoining plot, or at least nearby. They both died after their daughter, in 1944 (John) and 1958 (Martha). Martha's funeral was conducted by Revd Stanley Lloyd at All Saints' in 1958, according to the All Saints' parish records on microfiche at Dudley Archives. 

    Teresa came over for the day to see the plot and to tidy it up - with the consent of Dudley Council who now have responsibility for the graveyard. She also laid fresh flowers on the grave. She wanted to see whether there are any traces or references to Martha and John nearby. Alas, on this occasion she couldn't find any, so the search continues. 

    PAULINE TURNER 

    It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Pauline Turner, a very active member of All Saints' congregation, who contributed a vast amount of her energy, enthusiasm and talents to the life of our church community. 

    Pauline's funeral has now been arranged for Wednesday 19th September at 14:30 in All Saints' Church, with refreshments afterwards in All Saints' Church Hall.

    If you would like to leave a tribute to Pauline, we've created a special folder for this purpose. Send your memory to: 

    mmjones29@blueyonder.co.uk

    or leave a memory on our Facebook page:

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to her husband Alan, and to the family. 

    YOUR CHANCE TO SHAPE THE PARISH'S FUTURE 

    On Sunday 14th October 2018 there will be an opportunity for church members around the parish to influence the future of our Christian community in Gornal and Sedgley.

    There will be one Parish Service, Holy Communion at All Saints' at 10.30am, after which we'll gather in the hall for a picnic lunch followed by a time of reflection and discussion. 

    The Vision Day will break down the activities of the parish into eight elements  identified by the Diocesan Initiative 'Signs of the Kingdom'. 

    On Sunday 'Signs of the Kingdom' booklets were given out with pew sheets. The eight elements are explained in the booklet, and parishioners are invited to rate our performance against these criteria and enter this rating on charts that are now on display in each church.  

    The results will be collated and available to view on the Visioning Day, when they will be discussed by those attending.
