Since 2009, Transforming Church has been shaping our vision across the Church of England in Birmingham, guiding us to be a Church that is growing ‘larger, wider, deeper and younger’ – a Church that is a transforming presence at the heart of our communities. In the next phase of Transforming Church, we want to build on the amazing work done since 2009 and we now have resources to do so. The new things that God is doing through his Church can take root at a deeper level and the gifts of more people, both ordained and lay, can be released.
Transforming Church is a mission initiative that was rolled out across Birmingham diocese from the Autumn of 2009. It aims to be a gift to the parishes, not an additional burden; to provide a framework for church development rather than a blueprint of how every church should look; and to start with the local church, but not finish there.
