Parish History[edit | edit source]

The Ecclesiasticl Parish of Boldmere St Michael was created as district church from Sutton Coldfield, Warwickshire Holy Trinity in 1857. The benefice of  Boldmere is in the Sutton Coldfield deanery of the Diocese of Birmingham.

Suuton Coldfield has a historical connection to the British Royal Family, resulting in it receiving the title of Royal Town when it was a municipal borough in its own right and part of Warwickshire. When the Local Government Act 1972 came into force in 1974, Sutton Coldfield became part of Birmingham and the wider West Midlands county.
