St Michael and All Angels The Parish Church of South Yardley Birmingham B26 1AP

Welcome to St Michael's website

As many will know, we are currently without a Priest and, in conjunction with our colleagues at St.Cyprian Hay Mill, are working hard to search for and appoint a new one to work in both churches. Via the Diocesan website and The Church Times the advert for applicants has been published which reads as follows:

Incumbent - St Cyprian, Hay Mills & St Michael & All Angels, South Yardley

These two parishes in urban/suburban east Birmingham have been working together for a number of years, have committed lay leadership and look forward to their next stage of development. 

This post would suit a person energised by:

• Praying, living & witnessing in diverse, multicultural Birmingham

• Fostering vision and direction across both parishes

• Encouraging a rich variety of worship, from formal Anglican to creative middle

• A leading role in an innovative industrial heritage mission project with established partners

• Collaborative ministry leadership with church members and beyond.

‘We are supportive and down to earth people who look forward to working with a new priest as we grow together.’

Closing Date: 17 February Discernment interviews: 11 & 12 March

Interested candidates are welcome to contact the Archdeacon of Aston, Ven Simon Heathfield, for further conversation on 07769 187435 or
