St Stephen’s Church, Selly Park is a Grade II listed[1] parish church in the Church of England in Birmingham.


It was built between 1870 and 1871 by Martin & Chamberlain architects in the English Decorated Gothic style, as a daughter church of St Mary's Church, Selly Oak. It was consecrated on 18 August 1871.[2]

A separate parish was assigned out of St Mary’s Selly Oak in 1892.

St. Stephen's was combined with St Wulstan's Church, Bournbrook (now on Alton Road) to form a single parish. The Church Centre, formerly part of St. Stephen's, became a separate parish known as Christ Church, Selly Park, in 2004.


The first organ in the church was built by Henry Jones and opened in 1875. A specification of the organ can be found on the National Pipe Organ Register.[3]


The church possesses a single 5cwt chiming bell cast by Barwell in 1870.
