The Venue

St Paul’s Church JQ

Designed by Roger Eykyn of Wolverhampton, building started in 1777, and the church was consecrated in 1779. It was built on land given by Charles Colmore from his Newhall estate. It was the church of Birmingham’s early manufacturers and merchants – Matthew Boulton and James Watt had their own pews, which were bought and sold as commodities at that time.

It is a rectangular church, similar in appearance to St Martin in the Fields, London. The spire was added in 1823 by Francis Goodwin. The east window has an important 1791 stained-glass window designed by Benjamin West and made by Francis Eginton. It shows the Conversion of St Paul. The church is a Grade I listed building.

St Paul’s is open to the public 11am-2pm on weekdays, with a prayer meeting on Monday at 12.30pm. 

Services take place every Sunday at 10.30am. 

St Paul’s hosts many events and is available to hire for events, from theatre to music, art displays to lectures.
