The protest being held by the Aston Parish Church today against the lunchtime Aston Villa match being held on Easter Sunday includes handing out free hot cross buns.
Reverend Andrew Jolley says they are there to remind people what Easter is all about.
Although matches have taken place on Easter Sunday for years, protesters say holding the game earlier in the day this year is disruptive to those attending Church.
