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. We rejoice in the diversity of those we serve and aim to promote inclusion as widely as possible. As a parish church, we also welcome enquiries about baptisms and weddings.

Our cathedral is the oldest building in the city still used for its original purpose, and is home to  some remarkable treasures and the largest green space in central Birmingham. We 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.

The 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.

 

Opening and service times

Birmingham Cathedral is free to visit – whether you want to attend a service, light a candle, enjoy a time of reflection or simply enjoy our beautiful building.

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. Birmingham Cathedral rejoices in the diversity of the communities we serve and promotes inclusion as widely as possible.

As a parish church we also welcome enquiries about weddings and baptisms.
