How to get to the Pastoral Centre.

Drive up the A38 from the south. As you drive up a hill you enter Northfield and come to a complex set of traffic lights. KEEP ON THE A38. Go along the bypass (A38) and you will pass Sainsbury's on the left and then their fuel station. At the next set of traffic lights you will be turning right on to the A4121 (Kings Norton/Cotteridge). You will then go over another set of traffic lights (in a short distance) staying on the A4121. At the bottom of the hill is a 'T' junction (traffic lights) where the A4121 goes left and you do the same. Now take the  second turning on the right called Rectory Road (you cannot turn into Church Road as it is one way). At the bottom of Rectory Road turn right and you are in a narrow lane running alongside the Church. At the end of this lane turn right again and in 20 yards on the right is the entrance to the car park and Pastoral Centre. The entrance to the Pastoral centre is opposite the 'The Stone' pub'!  Google Map view is here
