Welcome to St Martin in the Bull Ring

Welcome to the St Martin in the Bull Ring website. We are a Christian community seeking to discover the heart of God in the heart of the city of Birmingham. We believe that the Christian faith is about exploration and life. Through prayer, worship and reading the Bible we endeavour to find ways to live out our faith in service to those in need and in fellowship with those who are part of the community. Being a part of St Martin's is both an adventure and a challenge and we are delighted to welcome everyone to join us. Whether that is through coming to one of our services or events or through this website it doesn't matter. What matters is getting involved. Stewart Jones, Rector.
