Join us and become part of a friendly and welcoming church community. Our church is a place for spiritual reflection and meditation as well as being an inspirational space.
There’s been a building on this site for over 160 years and when the church was rebuilt ten years ago, what we wanted was a building which shouted out ‘We are here for everyone’. And yes, we are here for everyone, young and old, of different cultures, backgrounds, ages, sexuality and gender. We are an Inclusive Church and as a caring church community, we are very much here to meet the needs of the people of Erdington and beyond.
Our Vicar is Rev Emma Sykes. To watch her welcome message, click here.
