Places of Worship: City Centre (Colmore Row)
Colmore Row, Birmingham. B3 2QB • (0121) 262 1840
St Philip's has been a place of worship and prayer since at least the early 1700s. The cathedral is a living organism with services, choir practices and meetings taking place at times throughout most days but visitors are always welcome to come in and, if appropriate, take part.
All visitors are welcome to Birmingham Cathedral no matter what their faith, culture or walk of life. This fine 18th century English Baroque parish church by Thomas Archer, with its famous stained glass by Burne-Jones, became the cathedral for the new Diocese of Birmingham in 1905.
For three centuries the Baroque gem of St Phillip’s – “the church on the hill” – has stood at the centre of life in Birmingham. Originally the parish church of the newest area of the rapidly expanding 18th century town, St Phillip’s became the city’s cathedral in 1905.
