The Blakenall Heath Parish covers a series of outer council estates about three miles to the north of Walsall town centre. It is the largest UPA parish in the Lichfield Diocese . It can be a difficult place to work but it is also an exciting parish with many developments that are not to be seen in more affluent parishes.

The Team Parish is served by two anglican churches:- Christ Church and St Catherine with St. Chad's. Each church has a catholic tradition in which the Eucharist is central.

To find out more about the individual churches please click on the links at the top of the page.
