About the cathedral
Birmingham Cathedral is a fine example of ‘English Baroque’ architecture and has been a place of Christian worship since 1715. Situated in the heart of the nation’s ‘second city’ we are open and welcome visitors every day of the year.
The Cathedral is set in one of the few public green spaces in the heart of the business quarter and represents a ‘breathing space’ for people of all faiths and none in this great city. The musical tradition of the Cathedral is one of its greatest glories. The Cathedral Choir, one of the finest in the country, comprises three sections: men, boys and girls. The Cathedral is home to growing multi-cultural congregations and a lively Christian community and hosts a wide range of community, interfaith and cultural events.
