The Diocese of Birmingham is a diocese in the Church of England's Province of Canterbury, covering the north west of the traditional county of Warwickshire (now West Midlands and part of Staffordshire, Warwickshire and north Worcestershire) in England.

Cathedral[edit]

The see is in the centre of the City of Birmingham, West Midlands, where the seat of the diocese is located at the Cathedral Church of Saint Philip.

The 18th-century parish church of Saint Philip in Birmingham was elevated to cathedral status in 1905 when the see was founded, on 13 January 1905.[1] Previously the area had been part of the Diocese of Worcester.

Bishops[edit]

Besides the diocesan Bishop of Birmingham, David Urquhart and the Bishop suffragan of Aston (Anne Hollinghurst; which see was created in 1954), there are four retired bishops resident in (or near) the diocese who are licensed to serve as honorary assistant bishops:[2]

Since 1994, alternative episcopal oversight (for parishes in the diocese who reject the ministry of priests who are women) is provided by the provincial episcopal visitor, Jonathan Goodall, Bishop suffragan of Ebbsfleet since 2013, who is licensed as an honorary assistant bishop of the diocese in order to facilitate his work there.
