There is no charge for addmission, but any donations to the upkeep or restoration of the church would be appreciated.
If you wish to arrange a visit for a group at another time, please contact one of the churchwardens Chris Smith (Phone: 0121 471 1301; E-mail: email@example.com) or Fay Wilson (E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org).
At present there is still plenty of free parking space for visitors near the church on Stanhope Street and Conybere Street, although the City Council currently plan to allocate most of parking to local residents, with very limited pay-and-display parking by the church. There may be no charge on Sundays. From July 2020 a clean air zone will be in force in the centre of Birmingham, which included St Alban's Church. Please see the BrumBreathes website to see the boundary of the clean air zone https://www.brumbreathes.co.uk/what-is-the-caz and to determine whether your car will be required to pay a daily charge of £8 to enter the clean air zone: https://www.brumbreathes.co.uk/individuals.
You may find it more convenient to travel by bus, or if you are able, by bicycle.
You can plan your bus journey here: https://nxbus.co.uk/west-midlands/plan-your-journey or here: http://journeyplanner.networkwestmidlands.com/. (B12 0XB, the postcode of the vicarage, seems to work better than that of the church.)
St Alban's Church is Member of the Birmingham Heritage Forum.
