Welcome – Dear Friend, as you visit this website you should know that whatever your background you are most welcome to come and see us, join us for worship and other events or just admire the Neo-Gothic architecture of our beautiful church.

Opening Times – We are open for Mass at 10am on Sunday mornings subject to restrictions because of Covid. We are still working on opening the church at other times for public worship. You can attend online services by following this link.

Accessibility – We have recently upgraded our step-free access to the church which is available through the gate in the railings between the church and 120 Stanhope Street leading to the cloister door. We have also improved lighting on the path to the cloister door and at the door itself. Our main church and chapels are wheelchair accessible, but our chancel has steps. We also have a toilet adapted for wheelchairs. For more details about accessibility follow this link.

Hearing Aid Users – We have an induction loop; to receive sound from it, switch your hearing aid to the ‘T’ position.

Children – We welcome children in our Church. We have a 5pm family service on Saturday's in term time. If you want to know more please contact us using the "Get in touch" link at the bottom left of this webpage or phoning 0121 4400404 or email us at [email protected]

Choir and music – Organ music and choir singing are particularly dear to our tradition and have a prominent role in our Sunday liturgy. Given the acoustic qualities of our church, we often hold choir concerts by choirs coming from all over Birmingham, the UK and abroad. You can listen to some of the music from St Alban's by clicking on this link.
