Faith in Birmingham

Discover the many faiths that make up Birmingham’s rich and diverse community and explore how different faiths have influenced and shaped the city. Uncover sacred objects used in religious practice and explore the role of faith in places of worship, at home and within our journey through life.

Over 70 objects are on display, representing over 10 different faiths, including the iconic Sultanganj Buddha. The gallery focuses on the six main faith groups in Birmingham; Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Sikhism and Judaism. In 2017 we expanded the range of objects to represent the Baha’i, Jain, Rastafari, Mandaean and Pentecostal Christianity faiths, working closes with those communities.

The gallery development involved two years of consultation with faith groups and communities across Birmingham. The groups and individuals identified objects in our collection, and from further afield, to enable them to tell stories about their beliefs to other people.

Faith in Birmingham has been developed by working in partnership with the British Museum.

New: Finding Faith Events Programme

We are delighted to be working in partnership with the British Museum to deliver a regional programme of activities in support of their ‘Living with the Gods’ exhibition. 

Our programme invites you to explore the topic of faith from a variety of perspectives and question the role of faith within different communities. From in depth discussion events to storytelling for families there is something for everyone to engage with across the programme.

Finding Faith launches in November and runs until the end of March 2018. Please take a look at the What’s On section for the full list of activities.
