St Edmunds Church Tyseley

Serving the Parish of Tyseley & The Wider Community

St Edmunds Church is Currently in “Interregnum”. Which means we are awaiting our new Parish Priest (Vicar).  We are still very much open on Sundays, Wednesdays and Alternative Tuesdays for our Services and our Coffee & Craft times.  You will be offered a warm welcome and Christian Support & Care. 

For the foreseeable future we are unable to conduct Weddings and Baptisms without the help of our Neighbouring Churches in Acocks Green (St Mary’s) and Hall Green (Church of the Ascension). 

If you need any Help, Support or Prayer please contact us through the email address on the contact us page of this web site.

 Marriage after divorce

Your church wishes you a lifetime of love that grows within God's protection. But we recognise that some marriages do fail for all sorts of sad and painful reasons.

So in certain circumstances the Church of England accepts that a divorced person may marry again and this has been the case since 2002.

The reasonable and clear guide to charging for a wedding

Wedding CoupleIt’s our privilege and our duty to celebrate weddings. When couples come to us, we want their day to be personal, meaningful, legally binding and beautiful. This need not cost them a fortune.

1. When a couple marries in church it is a privilege for them to pay! They become part of a centuries old tradition by contributing financially to the ministry costs of their wedding. In so doing, they help sustain Christian service in that community.

2. To marry in St Edmunds Church, everything that is legally required costs less than £450. In fact the statutory fee, as set out in the "The Table of Parochial Fees 1st January 2015 is all that a couple is obliged to pay by law to marry in church. Other things, like flowers, organists, bells and choirs, along with the services of verger, are all optional extras in law.

3. Additional costs for these optional extras must be based on real expense incurred by the church.
