Enjoy a Virtual Visit from Santa

The Gracechurch Centre is working very hard to make this Christmas special for families of Sutton Coldfield, and we’re giving you the opportunity to experience the magic of a traditional Santa visit from the comfort of your own home. That’s right… you can book a virtual visit with Santa now, just click the button below.



Following a major refurbishment, made possible with funding from Sutton Coldfield Town Council, The Gracechurch Centre is now home to a new Changing Places facility. The new facility will enable local people with profound learning or physical disabilities to use the bathroom facilities at the centre safely and comfortably.

The facility is fully equipped with adult-sized, height adjustable changing benches and hoists. Every aspect of the design, down to the colour of the tiles and paint, has been carefully selected to create a friendly, welcoming environment. 

The facility is located on the First Floor of the car park, next to Customer Care.

Jazz Festival 

We’re proud to be hosting two dates as part of the Birmingham, Sandwell and Westside Jazz Festival! Enjoy a performance from Sheila Waterfield on Saturday 17thOctober at 12:30pm, and Swing Café on Saturday 24th October at 12:30pm.


Working in all musical settings from duo to 17-piece big band, Sheila Waterfield’s sound is a unique blend of jazz, folk, soul, Latin and blues, described by Ron Bailey of Jazz Live as ‘a beautiful, warm, expressive voice’.


Swing Café is a stylish swing / jazz band playing well known and loved tunes from the 1920s to the 1950s. Led by popular Midlands vocalist Billie Baker, Swing Café consists of highly talented musicians with an impressive collective CV. Their joyous sunny sound reflects a wide range of musical influences.
