Christ Church, Sparkbrook was a Church of England building in the Anglican Diocese of Birmingham.


The church was built in 1867. The spire was removed in 1918 and the tower taken down after damage by a blast in the Second World War. It was badly damaged in the 2005 Birmingham tornado and was subsequently demolished, despite a campaign by the Victorian Society to save it.

The church had a three manual pipe organ by J.C. Bishop and Son dating from 1877. This was removed after the church was damaged in 2005 and has been exported. A specification of the organ can be found on the National Pipe Organ Register.
