St Mary, Alvechurch
St Mary’s is situated in School Lane, Alvechurch, and indeed is sited in the old village school buildings. Some of our older parishioners announce with great pride that they once attended, as do some of our visitors when they join us for Ecumenical Services.
We opened as a Catholic place of worship for the village in the early seventies, having already built up a community whilst meeting for Sunday Mass in Alvechurch Village Hall. The present building has been renovated to make it suitable for worship, whilst retaining many of the characteristics of a Victorian school; our latest improvements include kitchen facilities and a disabled toilet, done to a very high standard thanks to our ‘in-house’ team!
