Sutton Coldfield Methodist Church, South Parade
Sutton Coldfield Methodist Church had occupied a prominent site in the town centre since 1888. In 1926 the Sunday School moved to new buildings in South Parade. It is now the Church Centre next to the church SP1295 : Methodist Church Centre, South Parade. In 1935 the Borough Council and the Trustees agreed in principle that the Council would buy the church and convert it to a public library, while the Trustees could build a new church in South Parade. Achieving that outcome was not straightforward but a new church was built and opened on 17 October 1936. The whole story is told on the church's website: LinkExternal link (Archive LinkExternal link ) Click on About Us, then A Brief History of the Building.
The view is across a corner of the bowling green next door SP1295 : Bowling Green, South Parade which has a story of its own.
