St Cuthbert of Lindisfarne, Castle Vale

At Walsingham 2017

The Parish Church of St Cuthbert of Lindisfarne has been at the heart of Castle Vale since 1973. It aims to serve the community not only as a place of prayer and worship but also as a base for many other activities and organisations serving Castle Vale.

Over 10,000 people live in this community, on the northeastern edge of Birmingham in the English Midlands. The estate was built in the late 1960s on a former Royal Air Force airfield. The original aim was to  accommodate people from the Aston and Nechells districts of the city.

The Parish is In The Pastoral and Sacramental Care of The Bishop of Ebbsfleet and St Cuthbert's offers both regular services and services for the stages of life (such as weddings, baptisms and funerals). Details can be found on the Church Services page.


The church building has a modern interior which gives a light, airy space for worship. It also has two halls used by different organisations for a variety of activities. The church halls are available for hire, please contact the Hall Bookings Secretary for information.


For help with all enquiries please see the list of Church Contacts.

RAF Castle Bromwich

605 Squadron

Castle Vale was built on the site of RAF Castle Bromwich. That heritage is very much a part of the community today, especially at St Cuthbert’s where it is home to the 605 (County of Warwick) RAF Squadron’s Colour and War Memorial.


For more information about the Squadron, please visit:



The Church is here for every part of life: at baptism, marriage and for funerals. But there are also other times when people might feel the need to come to God: confession (the sacrament of reconciliation) is when people freely tell God what troubles them and hear his absolution, some people wish to have their new homes blessed, and others wish to hold a service to remember someone special. All of these services can be discussed with the clergy of the parish.


If you have any questions, please contact the clergy, or you might like to look at the Church of England website.
