Overview

Welcome to St Martin in the Bull Ring. This is one of the most ancient and contemporary buildings in Birmingham. Most of this Grade II listed church is from the nineteenth century. It was built in 1873 and is an example of gothic Victorian architecture, designed by Alfred Chatwin, from Birmingham, who also worked on the houses of parliament. But St Martin's is much older than that. There has been a church on this site since 1290 and may well have been a simple place of worship here in Saxon times. St Martin's is also a place of worship for a thriving community who refurbished the building in 2000 making it more light and open. In 2009 we created a tea lounge, healing center, and learning and advice service so our hospitality in the heart of the city could be extended. We believe that what Jesus called 'Life in all its fullness' can be discovered right here in the crosscurrents of the marketplace. You are very welcome to come in and walk around.

The architecture on this building is very unusual and modern. It is a part of the ever changing improvements they are making to Birmingham city centre.

As part of a Positively Birmingham Walking tour we entered with our guide to admire the Burne-Jones stained glass windows. Such an interesting history and so beautiful. Such life-like figures in tender poses. Uplifting and inspirational. There was a quality craft fayre and a musical...More

This building makes a real contrast to the surounding. For example the old church and other houses around. You can have a nice resting under the strange wall.

What struck me most is the fabulous combination of old traditional architecture and the modern avantgarde constructions. Lots of restaurants, bars, shops and department stores.

Lots of shops under one roof and lots of bars and eating placed also in and around this area. Definitely worth a visit.

This is one of the more famous churches in Birmingham. It is not grand as the other churches in Europe but it is not bad for a visit.

If you visit Bullring you need to see St. Martin... It is not something unique or special, but it is a nice sightseeing.
