St Peter’s Church, Sutton Coldfield
St Peter’s was consecrated in June 1905 by the Bishop of Birmingham, the Rt Revd Charles Gore, only 2 weeks after the Diocese of Birmingham had been formed. The brickwork contains Arts and Craft details and rainwater heads are cast with grotesque heads.
There is stained glass by Sidney Harold Meteyard RBSA (1868-1947) while the Sanctuary is home to a large alabaster Reredos and a gold and blue painted Reredos can be found in the Lady Chapel.
Drop in and explore the church at your leisure. Members of the church will be on hand to answer questions and refreshments will be available for a donation.
There are good public transport links with a number of buses stopping on Birmingham Road (X3,X4,X5, 905, 5) and within walking distance of both Wylde Green Train Station (35-40 minutes) and Sutton Coldfield Train Station (15-20 minutes).
