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.

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.

Saint Leonard's is very popular for weddings and baptism services. In order that these are properly prepared for the families concerned 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 when there is a Christian festival.

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.

It would make a great place for a church quiet day with the practical facilities next door in the new church hall and excellent parking available and no difficulties for wheelchair users or other disabilities.
