We are the Church of England team parish within the Bloxwich area, (just north of Walsall) and are three family friendly churches - the parish church of All Saints', St Thomas' and Holy Ascension.  We have varied services from traditional and reflective, to the more informal, but do check out further to find something for you.  For anyone interested in learning more about the Christian faith, we run regular Alpha courses.
