Welcome to Birmingham Cathedral

We are a Christian Church of the Anglican Communion and seat of the Bishop of Birmingham.

Birmingham Cathedral is home to a welcoming community, offering corporate worship of The Church of England, enriched by the Anglican choral tradition. Our cathedral is the oldest building in the city still used for its original purpose, and is home to  some remarkable treasures, as well as the largest green space in central Birmingham. We also work closely with various local faith groups, businesses, institutions and charities, to promote  community cohesion and to support the important civic role of the cathedral.

As a parish church, we also welcome enquiries about Baptisms and Weddings


Service Information

Christian worship is at the heart of the cathedral’s life as we offer to God our praises and prayers. Everyone is welcome to attend any our public services, as we rejoice in the diversity of the communities we serve and promote inclusion as widely as possible.

  • Birmingham Cathedral is led by The Dean of Birmingham, The Very Reverend Matt Thompson.
  • Day-to-day liturgy is overseen by The Reverend Canon Dr Josephine Houghton.
  • Cathedral outreach and mission is overseen by The Reverend Canon Andy Delmege.
