Fascinating history revealed as community church refitted.

STIRCHLEY Community Church is to be refurbished after marking its 40th anniversary.

The building, on Hazelwell Street, Stirchley, was built in the late 19th century as a local institute by the Cadbury family, and has been owned by the church since the 1970s.

As well as being used for church activities, it is a thriving community centre.

The work will include plastering and repairing the walls, repairing and replacing damaged flooring, creating new storage areas, installing new doors, and upgrading electrics, lighting and heating to more energy-efficient systems. Work is expected to be complete by the end of next month.

Gary Cadge, the church's pastor, said: "In digging around the archives in preparation for the anniversary celebration, we have found that the building has a fascinating history and this project will enable us to make it sustainable for the future."
