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.

St Martins is a pretty impressive Victorian Gothic church which dominates the area between the bullring shopping centre and the markets. Inside it is lighter and more open than I expected, and one's eye is drawn to the stained glass windows. These are post war...More

Popped in here to admire the architecture. There was a craft fair taking place today. The building is stunning and there’s a nice cafe built on one side. Very nice

Lovely church between the modern bullring and the old market. The church is lovely inside with some beautiful stained glass windows. Craft fair on when we visited and also a cafe.

The bullring dominates but the markets around st Martin is the old Birmingham and the Church of st Martin in the field really stands out and fits in at the same time

Do go in and look at the windows, read the history of them and how lucky that they didn't lose the Burnes Window as they had the forethought to remove it in the war, the day before the Church was bombed.
