Guru Nanak Gurdwara Smethwick

Guru Nanak Gurdwara Smethwick is a Sikh place of worship in Smethwick, near Birmingham. It is one the largest and oldest Gurdwara's in Europe. Spanning a total area of about 70,000 square metres, the building is three storeys high. Building work commenced in the late 1990s and ever since the Gurdwara has been expanding in order to accommodate for Smethwick's growing Sikh community. Funding for the Gurdwara comes by way of donations from members of the local and national Sikh community.
The Sikh Community from all over the Midlands first began holding religious services in a school in Brasshouse Lane, Smethwick, in 1958. This led to larger congregations of Sikh worshippers and the need arose to acquire more suitable premises for the Gurdwara. The Congregational Chapel building at 130 High Street, Smethwick, was purchased and the Gurdwara opening took place on 31 July 1961. The present Gurdwara premises are at the old church site but have been totally rebuilt and extended.
In 2012, a £5million extension was completed making the Gurdwara Sahib much larger and more modern than before. The new building features a larger langar hall with a modern kitchen, lecture theatre, offices, classrooms, gym, function room and much more. Further extensive refurbishments were carried out in 2016, when the local press said that the Gurdwara attracted a weekly congregation of more than 10,000 people.
Throughout the day Sri Guru Granth Sahib Ji presides over the Sikh congregations.
Thousands of Sikhs and non-Sikhs attend the Gurdwara Sahib to worship and visit the beautiful Gurdwara complex. Guru Ka Langar (free community kitchen) is served all day long every day throughout the year.
