World Mission

The Birmingham Diocese is part of the Church of England which in turn is part of the Anglican Communion – a family of more than 78 million Christians around the world who are members of 44 different churches.

As a family of Christians we try to take every opportunity to share our resources (financial, practical and spiritual) with each other and build personal relationship and meaningful links between individuals and churches.

Many churches in this Diocese are linked across continents through the friends and families of church members, mission partners, campaigns and social action project. The Birmingham Diocese itself has been linked with the Dioceses of Malawi for more than 40 years. You can find out more about our links with Malawi by clicking here. There are also exciting new links forming with the Anglican Church in Bolivia with various visits affirming our mutual commitment to support one another in mission across continents.

We believe that being part of a world wide church helps us to understand more fully the work of God through Jesus Christ in the world today, reminds us of our responsibility to care for all of God’s creation and challenges us to live lives that contribute to a fairer and more just world economy.
