Cathedrals & Churches, Birmingham
Birmingham Cathedral is dedicated to St Philip and has been a place of worship since the early 18th Century. Thomas Archer designed the church and became the new parish church in then an affluent part of the city. This beautiful Cathedral is known for its Baroque design and its famous stained glass windows featuring the main faith's themes, were added in the late 19th Century.
Following the Industrial Revolution and the city becoming a major industrial centre, the building was adopted to become the new Cathedral at the end of 19th Century. It was felt by the bishop then, Charles Gore, that money could be used for the church's aims and purposes than on a new building, because of the social issues raised in the city at the time
I had a look inside and admired the beautiful interior decor especially the stained glass windows by Edward Burne-Jones. The Cathedral is opened daily to visitors and there are a number of services held daily.
