At the April 2022 General Conference on April 3, 2022, President Russell M. Nelson announced plans to construct the Birmingham England Temple. The 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 were sent to England in 1837, only seven years after The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints was established. England is home to the oldest continuous congregation of the Church. Today, the Church has close to 190,000 members in 320 congregations in the United Kingdom.[1] Preston, England, is home to the oldest continuous congregation of the Church, dating to 1837.[2]

Location

The Birmingham England Temple is currently in the planning stages. No location has been announced by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
