St Benedict's Church, Bordesley is a Grade II listed parish church in the Church of England[1] in Birmingham.

The church was built in the Byzantine Revival style in 1909 by Nicol and Nicol of Birmingham.

The east end is enriched by the Byzantine-style painting of the apse by Henry Holiday and depicts Christ in Glory with angels, and saints in arcading, below. The painting was executed between 1912-19.
