About us

Birmingham Cathedral is the oldest building in the city still used for it’s original purpose. We are home to some remarkable treasures and the largest green space in central Birmingham.

Birmingham Cathedral is a church of the Anglican Communion and seat of the Bishop of Birmingham. Christian worship is at the heart of our community and all are welcome to attend our services. Our corporate worship of the Church of England is enhanced by Anglican Choral tradition, and as a parish church we welcome enquiries about baptisms and weddings.

We promote community cohesion through partnerships with faith groups, businesses, institutions, and charities, as well as undertaking an important civic role in the city.

We are honoured to have four beautiful stained-glass windows, designed by Pre-Raphaelite artist Edward Burne-Jones. While these historic pieces are undergoing conservation in 2023, visitors can book a free scaffolding tour to see work the work taking place up-close.

We are free to visit, and all are welcome to attend services, light a candle, reflect or simply enjoy our beautiful building.
