Parish History

Birmingham St Luke is an Ecclesiastical Parish in the county of Warwickshire, created in 1843 from Birmingham St Martin, Warwickshire Ancient Parish

St. Luke's church, which cost about £3700, was consecrated Sept. 28th, 1842, and is situated on the Bristol-road; it is in the Norman style, has 1100 sittings, and some schools were built in connexion with it in 1843, at a cost of £1140. The interior is well fitted up, partly by means of special gifts made by several gentlemen; there are a handsome organ, a pulpit and desk of oak, a painted window, and other fittings up of appropriate design. The living is in the gift of Trustees.
