St John the Baptist, Middleton, is one church in a Parish of three, the other two being St Nicholas, Curdworth, and St Chad's, Wishaw, in the Deanery of Sutton Coldfield and the Diocese of Birmingham. There is a service every Sunday and when there is a fifth Sunday in the month we get together for a joint service with the other two.
Our vicar is the Reverend Dr. Matthew Rhodes and the church wardens are Gordon Butler and Geoffrey Stait. The Middleton Church Council meet regularly approximately every two months, to discuss matters pertaining to the life of the church. Village social events organised by the Church Council over a twelve month period include:-
A whist drive
Two general knowledge quizzes
Open gardens with a Flower Festival
A musical concert including a harvest supper.
A magical candlelit carol service with mulled wine and mince pie refreshments.
