What to expect


Thank you for taking the time to visit our site! You are valuable to God and valuable to us also. If you live in Birmingham, have relocated to study or just visiting the city, we would love to have you join us at one of our services this weekend.

Mount Zion Community Church is a part of the Assemblies of God in the UK. Each week 300-400 people attend our services and many more than that call Mount Zion their home. We place a high value on creating a welcoming and friendly environment where authentic relationships and teaching are a priority. Our music is vibrant and passionate and easy to relate to.

We are equally committed to helping people find faith and helping people grow in their faith. We are well known in the community for responding to many of the issues directly affecting our community over the years.

Steps to Visiting on a Weekend

1. Choose a Service:

We have two  services each Sunday.

The times are as follows:

1st Service: 9.30 am - 11.oo am

2nd Service: 11.45am - 1.30pm

2. Arrive and park:

Plan to arrive 15 minutes early to find parking and get into the service. If you have children, it’s best to arrive 15 minutes early to get them registered for Zion Kids, our Children’s church. Zion Kids takes place during our Sunday morning service.

3. Find a Place for Yourself and Your Kids:

One of our welcoming team will be available as you come through the front door. Simply ask them to point you to the auditorium (or to children’s check-in if you have kids). Our welcoming team can help you with directions, questions or any other needs you may have.

4. Celebrate Through Worship:

Ushers will welcome you into the auditorium where you are free to sit anywhere you like or you can choose to have an usher help you find a seat.

Our service begins with approximately 30 minutes music. Words to all songs are displayed on large video screens.

There is then a greeting (shake hands with those around you), announcements, communion, an offering and a teaching message. Our services typically last about two hours.

5. Enjoy Your Visit in Comfort:

During our service you will be made to feel welcome as a visitor. You are not expected to participate in the offering. You may choose to participate in communion . . . or not (either way is just fine). You will not be pressured into a visitor’s reception. You can remain entirely anonymous if you like. We’re just glad you came. You are encouraged to visit as often as you like. When you are comfortable, take the next step and connect with us.

6. Connect with Mount Zion:

We trust you will enjoy visiting Mount Zion. If you would like to know more about the church, simply fill out a visitor’s card during the service. If you would like to be part of the Mount Zion Church family, take the one-evening membership class Membership 101, taught by one of our Pastoral staff. If you are new to the Christian faith or simply reconnecting with it, sign up for New Creations, our new believer’s class.

7. Food, WIFI & Restrooms:

We know how important food is! We want you to be able to relax in the church foyer before and after services. Our wonderful catering staff provide a selection of food and drinks that you can purchase after the service either to eat in or take away. Toilets are in the foyer and upstairs in the main auditorium. We have free WIFI internet connections. Simply select “MZCC Courtesy” from your list of available wireless networks.

Still not sure about visiting? We’re happy to answer any questions you may have.
