Celebrating 100 years of Worship at Hazelwell

Last November marked 100 years since the laying of the foundation sone of St Mary Magdalen Church, Kings Heath, on the site of a Mission Hall affiliated to All Saints church Kings Heath.

In July this year we celebrated 100 years since the church was first consecrated for worship at a special service led by the Right Reverend David Urquhart Bishop of Birmingham.

Members of our congregation contributed to an oral history of our church since it's consecration which was illustrated by a display in church.

This was followed by a bring and share celebration lunch which was greatly enjoyed by everyone.

During the year we are planning a variety of activities to celebrate 100 years of worship on this site culminating in our church partnership, and including our joint worship with our Cambridge Road Methodist Church friends for part of this year.
