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.

    A GREAT TIME AT ST PETER'S 175TH ANNIVERSARY FAIR 

    Many congratulations to the congregation at St Peter's Upper Gornal who once again held a magnificent summer fair in the church hall.

    This year the event was extra special as the community celebrated 175 years since the opening of the church in 1844. The hall was filled with people and was a hive of activity - the food was excellent.

    Thank you to everyone for all your hard work in preparing, running - and in tidying up afterwards!

    ST PETER'S - WEEKEND AWAY AT PENTRENENT HALL 

    St Peter's have recently returned from their annual weekend away, which was spent at Pentrenant Hall near Church Stoke, Montgomery, a holiday centre in Wales for Christian retreats. 

    All Saints' Norbury
    They went for a trip on the Welshpool and Llanfair Light Railway; and the church is the one just over the border in Shropshire where they attended for a service on the Sunday morning - it's called All Saints', Norbury.

    parochial church council (PCC) is the executive committee of a Church of England parish and consists of clergy and churchwardens of the parish, together with representatives of the laity.

    Legally the council is responsible for the financial affairs of the church parish and the maintenance of its assets, such as churches and church halls, and for promoting the mission of the church.

    Are you searching for the grave of a relative?

    If you're searching for a relative who was buried in one of All Saints' three graveyards, please let us know if you are intending to visit.  We may be able to do some preparatory work that can help you in locating the grave. 

    Alas, there is little we can do to help when people arrive unexpectedly. 

    There is usually a Friday Coffee Morning from 10.30am - 12 noon, when All Saints' Church is open to all (ring us 01902 540289 to confirm one is definitely on), and you can come and talk to us then. 

    To contact us in advance, please email the Parish Office:
