Our Beginnings

SCF was formed in 1972 by a group of people from a range of church backgrounds (including Anglican, Baptist, Brethren) who were hungry for more of God in their lives.  Since those early beginnings we have grown as a church including developing our own building, The Bridge.  We firmly believe that The Bridge is a gift from God that we are to use it to help fulfill His vision for Shirley, Solihull and further afield.

SCF is part of the worldwide Christian Church and we adhere to mainstream Christian belief.

SCF is also a member of the following groups and is committed to their stated aims and ethos:

• Shirley Churches Together;

• UK Evangelical Alliance;

• The Willow Creek Association
