Small Heath Baptist Church is ‘the church on the corner that cares.’   We have a friendly approach and welcome all who come through our doors.  We are open for a variety of activities, meetings and events that take place throughout the week, as well as for weekly Sunday worship.  We have a long history of serving our community and bringing people together.  All our activities are FREE.

Development Practitioner:

May’s background is in adult health and social care and she has volunteered on various church and community-based projects.  May enjoys cycling, going for long walks and singing in the church worship team.  Her role as Development Practitioner is to bring together participants aged 50 plus, develop ways of connecting through their skills and interests and to develop new activities.



Match Club

11:00 am - 5:00 pm
In the Front Hall, Small Heath Baptist Church

MATCH club is a group that was originally established by volunteers to provide a safe and friendly place where the older men could meet to play dominoes.

We are now open to all and invite participants to bring their own packed lunch and hot drinks will be available. (Caribbean meal has been suspended until further notice.)

There are about 20 African Caribbean participants (men and women) from the church and local community.  They come together and share in a time of fellowship and fun and during the afternoon there is a discussion-based activity.  The discussions are focused on topical issues in health.
