South Cliff Methodist Church: Service celebrating the ordination of Rev Rose Coles

Sunday 25th June is a special day in the life of this circuit as Rev Rosie Coles is ordained at Solihull Methodist Church.

However, not everyone is able to travel for this special event so at South Cliff at 6:30 pm the service of Holy Communion led by Rev Denise Free will include aspects of the ordination service as we celebrate with, and support, Rosie on this memorable part of her journey. So, if you can’t make it to Birmingham, please come and join us at South Cliff.
