Growing churches at the heart of each community

"As the youngest urban population in one of the most lively and diverse regions, Birmingham is a great place to be. For many years churches all over the diocese have served their communities in such a way as to be recognised and valued by those outside the church structures for meeting the needs of some of the poorest people in society.

I am proud to be part of a team of clergy and lay people working tirelessly with breadth, depth and commitment in serving older people, young people, children, refugees, asylum seekers and homeless people."

Pray with Christians around the world:

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.
