St John the Evangelist’s Church, Perry Barr is a Grade II listed parish church in the Church of England in Perry Barr.

History

It was designed by the architect Robert Studholme. Work started in 1831.

The church was consecrated on 6 August 1833 by Rt Revd Henry Ryder, Bishop of Lichfield and Coventry.

The church was enlarged in 1888 with the construction of the chancel, organ chamber and vestries by J.A. Chatwin at a cost of £1,600. The builder was Collins of Tewkesbury.

In 1894, two transepts were added.

In 1894, part of the parish was taken to form a new parish for St Paul's Church, Hamstead.

It is in the catholic tradition within the Church of England, and is a member of "Inclusive Church", welcoming all, regardless of background, race, sexuality, ability or status.

Organ

The church has a two manual pipe organ. A specification of the organ can be found on the National Pipe Organ Register.
