As a good Catholic boy of Irish descent I was somewhat dragged along as a young lad to church every Sunday. All Souls was our place of worship but I have vague memories of going to the original Christ the King church on Westhill Road. This was before the modern chapel that stands there currently and would have been early 70's? Maybe it was my age and size but I seem to remember thinking and recalling it was not much more than a wooden shed? Anyone recall and have any images?

Hi NeilsYard, Hi all Wave I have attended weddings there & my grandson is a member of their football club. That about sums my experience up for Christ the King Church. Wave

Yes it was a weather boarded building built on Scots Lane, prior to that they rented a house in Scots Lane, for the supper as they had it first in Moseley Ave in a room at the Rialto their congregation were Polish, Ukrainian, then Italian, so it says, I know by a neighbour where I use to live who attended she told me it was one of the priest who built the club, so perhaps he built Our Lady of Lourdes Christ the King Church at the same time, as you know it now, it does say a priest and another part of the church helped to pay for the church to be built.

Some useful info here (opens as a PDF file) although still no images of that wooden church pre ‘72/'73 before the current 'modern' one.

I remember the wooden RC Church of Christ the King, in the 1940s-50s my grandparents' next door neighbours in Malvern Road, Coundon worshipped there, though I had never been inside and, alas, know of no picture of how it was then. Would it turn up at the Herbert? Edited by member, 31st Oct 2019 9:27 pm

Thanks Prof, I'll keep up the search. I can definitely remember being in it so would have been one of my earliest memories.
