The Church of St Cuthbert's of Lindisfarne, Castle Vale

Walsingham Abbey Grounds

The Parish Church of St Cuthbert of Lindisfarne has been at the heart of Castle Vale since 1973. We aim 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.


Our 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.

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.

605 Squadron


Castle Vale was originally a Royal Air Force base where the 605 Squadron began its life. The church is home to the Squadron’s Roll of Honour.

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.
