Reaching the Community

St Michael and Holy Angels Church is on the High Street in West Bromwich.

The Parish Hall was in poor condition and ideal for a regeneration project as it is centrally placed at the heart of West Bromwich. The plan of the Church to place its facilities at the service of the wider community was born.

Birinus was able to place its “know how” at the service of the Church: researching the needs of the area, creating a feasibility study, developing a business plan and training the leadership team.

After a period of fundraising and successful grant applications, the refurbishment began. The regenerated hall was opened formally by the Archbishop of Birmingham on 8 December 2013. The facilities of the Church Hall are now at the service not only of the Church but of others in the neighbourhood.
