Saint Leonard's serves a friendly and welcoming congregation and is
located in a surprisingly pretty rural setting despite being surrounded by
large Birmingham estates. It is very old, tracing its origins back to 1087,
and the Saxon stone base of the churchyard cross indicates that Christians
have worshipped here for generations, perhaps as early as 700 A.D.
Saint Leonard's is very popular for weddings and baptism services. In order
that these are properly prepared for the families concerned we ask you get
to know us in our Sunday worship first. We have interviews on
Wednesday evenings at 7-8.30pm in the hall next door.
This is a small church - seating a little over 100 people - and is cosy and
comfortable. It is easy to see why it is considered an attractive venue for
weddings and Blessings. We also have a very skilled and enthusiastic group
of flower arrangers who really come into their own at weddings or when
there is a Christian festival.
Frankley Parish Church and part of the Church of England diocese of Birmingham
The church has good parking with easy access for those with mobility problems, and a hearing loop. The adjacent Church Hall
also has easy access for people with mobility problems together with disabled toilets and baby changing facilites.
Our members take their part in helping the church link with the wider Frankley community especially through the Church
Community Centre at St Christopher's Holly Hill.
The churchyard is beautifully kept and provides an oasis of quiet tranquility for the many visitors who come to pray, recollect or
just sit where generations have been before them.
Our sister church at St Christopher's Holly Hill is located on the Frankley estate about a mile and a half away and it provides both
weekly worship and a base for the active Frankley Church Community project which we share with our Methodist friends in this
ecumenical partnership. Each Sunday in term time at 4pm the Sunday Crew hold lively all-age worship there. This is led by an
enthusiastic Christian band of musicians.
