Celebrating Unity in Mission

Thank you, if you have taken time to complete our survey on Unity in Mission. If not, the survey is still open and we'd love to hear from you. Your views and data is proving invaluable.

While we have had good responses from some parts of Birmingham and Solihull, we'd love to receive more replies from areas that are under represented in the survey so far, including Acocks Green, Birmingham City Centre, Edgbaston, Kings Norton, Moseley and Solihull.
