Birmingham Cathedral is a Christian Church of the Anglican Communion and seat of the Bishop of Birmingham.

We are home to a welcoming community, offering corporate worship of The Church of England. Our worships is enriched by the Anglican choral tradition. Christian worship is at the heart of the our daily life as we offer to God our praises and prayers. Everyone is welcome to attend any of our public services. We rejoice in the diversity of our communities and promote inclusion as widely as possible.

Birmingham Cathedral is the oldest building in the city still used for its original purpose. The cathedral is also home to some remarkable treasures, as well as the largest green space in central Birmingham. We promote community cohesion through partnerships with also faith groups, businesses, institutions and charities. These relations are a key part of supporting the important civic role of the cathedral. As a parish church, we also welcome enquiries about Baptisms and Weddings.

Birmingham Cathedral Chapter place the safeguarding of all who worship at and visit Birmingham Cathedral as their highest priority. This particularly includes children and at risk adults.

As a Church of England Parish Church Cathedral we work closely with our Diocesan Safeguarding colleagues, which ensures our practices and policies are providing a safe environment for all.

The Cathedral Safeguarding Team is made up of both staff and volunteers, who meet quarterly to review best practice, policy and to ensure that safeguarding remains at the forefront of all our work and mission.

In 2016 Chapter commissioned an independent safeguarding audit, evidencing their commitment to ensuring safe practices. That audit formed the basis for an action plan which is an integral part of the Cathedral team’s review.
