Thy Kingdom Come

Between 25th May and 4th June, communities and churches around the world are gathering together to pray that their friends, families and neighbours come to know Jesus Christ. 

Resources, ideas and suggestions are available through links on our website.



God Loves the NHS

NHS Prayer Walk is being organised to take place during the 10 days of Thy Kingdom Come.

It will be passing through Birmingham from Walsall to Solihull on Friday May 26th. There will be opportunity to greet and join the Pilgrims during the evening in Solihull. Further information will be available in next month's enews.



Taize Gathering Birmingham

We are delighted that the churches in Birmingham, together with the ecumenical Taize community, are preparing to welcome young people from across Europe for the Hidden Treasure meeting, 28th April - 1st May 2017 here in the city.

So far over 300 young adults (aged 16 - 35) from 17 different countries have registered to participate in the meetings and churches all around the city are busy preparing to welcome them.

We also want the young people of Birmingham to really understand that this meeting is for them!

Their involvement is actively encouraged and we hope many will register as participants, take part fully in all the aspects of the gathering and in doing so will discover, deepen and be inspired by the Hidden Treasures of their faith.

If you are aged between 16 and 35, please do register and participate.

If you are not in the age range, you are warmly invited to join the prayers during the weekend, which are open to all, and we would also like to invite you to encourage the young people in your churches, or those on the fringes of them, to make the most of this exciting opportunity.

Keep in touch with the preparations at: www.facebook.com/taizebirmingham

Faith and Finance Workshops
  • Has your church used Justin Welby’s “Dethroning Mammon” book as a Lent course this year?
  • Do you want to explore further the link between faith and finance?

The Ethical Money Churches Project helps worshipping communities to explore challenging issues relating to Christian stewardship of financial resources and assets.

The project is offering a free half day workshop to churches who have completed the Justin Welby Lent course, or similar, this year. The workshop will cover practical steps churches can take to connect their faith with their finance. Topics covered include ethical banking, ethical investment, credit unions, social enterprises, tax justice, Fair Trade, campaigning and more. This can be held at your church at any time that is suitable, and is a great way to continue to think about money issues long after Lent is over.
