An ecumenical ‘Service of Praise: The churches of Birmingham welcome the Commonwealth Games' will be held at St Chad’s Cathedral at 3pm on Sunday 24 July.

We will be joined by the Lord Lieutenant of the West Midlands, the Lord Mayor of Birmingham and the High Sheriff of the West Midlands (former athlete David Moorcroft).

Archbishop Bernard Longley will introduce the service and Bishop Mike Royal (General Secretary of Churches Together in England) will be the speaker.

A varied programme of music will be provided by the Cathedral organist, a worship band, the Birmingham City Council Workplace Choir and children from Sacred Heart Primary School.
