Summer Fun

“The best things in life are free”

If you are at a loose end for something to do this summer holiday, please pop by and have a look around the church and visit the Tea Lounge. The church is free entry, and we currently have on our ‘Summer Holiday Treat’ lunch starting at £3.25 for the children.

Birmingham City Centre has quite a few free attractions, and if you want a couple of places to visit beside the church, we’ve rounded up a list of our favourites…

The Birmingham Museum and Art Gallery
