When the last remaining building of Birmingham’s first gas works was bought by the Church of England, they were aware that, when newly constructed in 1818, its main function was the supply of gas to illuminate the dark streets. Now redeveloped into a vibrant church named St. Luke's, Gas Street it offers a different kind of light to the people of the city.

In its new role, the former Gas Retort House now has a growing congregation of over 300, mainly comprising of young people and students, who are led by The Revd. Tim Hughes, his wife Rachel and a dynamic team who are committed to making positive impact on Broad Street and the wider area.

This unique building, with a striking curved roof, supported by cast iron trusses and wrought iron rods, makes its own impact on the surroundings.

With lightweight, reversible interior structures, the redevelopment of the site is sympathetic to the buildings industrial architecture.

Strongdor worked with local contractors COS Shopfronts, supplying the project with three Acoustidor single fire exit doors. Acoustically rated to 42dB, these doors also included security astragals and low profile DDA approved thresholds. The black powder coating, complementing the existing substantial iron work.

The old gas streetlights may have long been extinguished, but with a new community and purpose, the future is looking bright for St. Luke's.
