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.

Who's Who at All Saints'

Pop into our Coffee Club on Friday morning 10.30am-12.00noon
The former All Saints' Sunday School drawn by Ron Baker in 1967- now Lloyds Chemists/Deb's Diner.
We're continuing our focus upon reminiscences of High Street and Dudley Street shops at Friday's coffee club.
Come along and contribute your memories of the businesses that used to occupy familiar premises in our village.
We now have a set of records from Kelly's Trade Directory for Staffordshire, giving the names of business holders in many of the premises, in the year 1940.
The records tally with, and complement what Kennedy Slater and Margaret Woodhall have told us in their recollections over the summer.
JAN'S INVESTITURE AS AN HONORARY LAY CANON
Our LLM Jan Humphries will be invested as an Honorary Lay Canon at Worcester Cathedral in September.
A date has now been chosen for the investiture of new Honorary Lay Canons in the Diocese of Worcester.
Jan Humphries, our LLM, will receive the honour at 5.30pm on Saturday 23rd September 2017 at Worcester Cathedral, during the Evensong Service.
Jan received her blue 'reader's scarf' at Worcester Cathedral in 2008.
The title has been awarded by the Bishop in recognition of her many years of voluntary service to the parish. Jan has been especially busy during the Vacancy, when there were no ordained priests in the parish for over a year.
While Jan is already entitled to call herself 'Canon', the ceremony represents public recognition of her new status.
Keith our Churchwarden is organising a coach to attend from All Saints' - there is a list to sign at the back of church if you'd like to go.
