Saint Clement’s Church of England, Castle Bromwich
St Clements, Castle Bromwich meets in quite a modern (1960s) multi-purpose building, originally constructed to be the Church Hall. What we lack in terms of a steeple or stained glass, we make up for in our congregation of about 60 people seeking to move forward in worship, discipleship and mission.
Our church serves a parish of about 12,000 people. A third live in Castle Bromwich and the remainder of the population come from the Smith’s Wood Community, an Urban Priority Area. Both communities are well represented in the congregation and its leadership.
Our worship is usually relaxed and informal (but still Church of England). Words are projected on a screen, and we have been exploring the use of multi-media in services. We use a variety of contemporary Christian worship songs alongside more traditional hymns.
We meet for worship on Sunday Mornings: 10.00am-11.30am
We also have a Midweek Communion Service on Wednesday mornings: 10.00 – 11.30a.m.
