St. David's Church, Shenley Green
|Denomination||Church of England|
Part of the parish was taken from that of St. Gabriel's Church, Weoley Castle.
The church is dominated by its large lantern tower which not only illuminates the interior but also acts as a local landmark. The distinctive green copper roof was replaced with stainless steel in 2011-2012 after a number of thefts of copper sheeting.
The consecration stone, and dedication stones were brought from St. David's Cathedral by the local scout troup in a handcart.
The church contains a pipe organ dating from 1970 by Bowen of Northampton. It was enlarged in 1999 by Trevor Tipple of Worcester. A specification of the organ can be found on the National Pipe Organ Register.
