St Modwen's is the Church of England town centre parish church for Burton upon Trent. It is dedicated to St Modwen, or Modwenna, a nun who founded an abbey at Burton in the 7th century.

The current church building, which dominates Burton's market square, was begun in 1719, first used for services in 1723, and finally completed by 1728. It replaced the remains of the church of Burton Abbey which was used by the town after the dissolution of the abbey. It is a Grade I listed building (List entry Number: 1214046 LinkExternal link Historic England).

St Modwen’s was designed in a Classical style by the brothers Richard and William Smith of Tettenhall, it is similar to St Alkmund's Church at Whitchurch (SJ5441 : St Alkmund's Church, Whitchurch ) which was built by William to the designs of John Barker.
