Temple Announcement

On April 3, 2022, President Russell M. Nelson announced plans to construct the Birmingham England Temple at the April 2022 General Conference. There are more than 190,000 members of the Church of Jesus Christ in the United Kingdom. A temple in Birmingham will be England's third. The London England Temple was the first (dedicated in 1958), followed by the Preston England Temple (dedicated in 1998). Missionaries arrived in England in 1837, only seven years after the Church was established. England is home to the oldest continuous congregation of the Church. Today, the Church has 325 congregations in the United Kingdom.3
