Parish Church

Holy Trinity - this church has now been demolished.
St. Michael and All Angels, Causeway Green Road

The church of St Michael and All Angels at Causeway Green Road, Langley Green was the parish church for Langley from 1890, replacing the smaller Trinity Church, Langley. It closed in 2007, the last service being held on 1st July. (The congregation now meets at Edward Street Methodist Church and monthly at St John's Rood End.)
The Birmingham Diocese has been unable to find a purchaser for the building to date, and it is now likely that the building will be demolished.
