I’m indebted – as I usually am – to the young David Evans who’s given me the heads up about events surrounding the 50th Anniversary of Silver Street Methodist Church in Brownhills.
The church was built in 1967 to replace the and combine Mount Zion and the Wesleyan in Brownhills High Street which were lost to redevelopment and it has to be said, old age; latterly, the remarkable building whose design hasn’t dated at all has accepted congregations from other churches and chapels in Brownhills like Park View, Brownhills West and Coppice Side.
There are a fair few events to celebrate the fifty year milestone – note the memorabilia display starting this Thursday (27th April 2017) which will be very interesting indeed:

Thanks to David for letting me know – and as ever, if any members of the Church would care to drop me an email I’m happy to advertise your community events. Just drop me a line.
If you have any memories of the new Silver Street Church – or indeed, the ones it superseded – please do comment or drop me an email. BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com.
