Beautiful historic church right in the middle of the bull ring, inside it’s calm and very different to the hustle and bustle outside. Even if your not religious it’s worth a visit to admire

This church is an oasis of calm in the centre of the amazing city of Birmingham. In the hustle and bustle it is always calm within the walls of this lovely church.

A church with lots of history and many changes during its existence. It has been enlarged, strengthened and struck by lightning many times. The special location and history make it an interesting visit and explore everything that happened to it.
