Birmingham Churches Together has always aimed to be at the heart of Christian partnership in Birmingham and Solihull and to celebrate the ever-changing diversity of the Christian presence in our region, thereby increasing unity and cooperation.
To do this effectively we need to have our finger on the pulse of what is happening across the Christian community and its diverse expressions and traditions. How are we reaching out together and how do Christians across Birmingham and Solihull feel about unity?
In light of this we have devised a short survey for worshipping Christians and leaders to complete. This will help improve our understanding of how local churches are partnering across different traditions and help us support the building of unity in Christian mission.
The survey asks about the kind of activities you do in partnership with other worshipping communities; those which rely on volunteers from beyond your congregation; and any involving people of other faiths. What is working well? What can we do better? What hinders or helps us to build partnerships?
We also want to know your experiences of local Churches Together groups or other places of connection. Do you feel they promote unity and what Birmingham Churches Together might do to help?
Entitled “Celebrating Unity in Mission”, the survey should take three to eight minutes to complete, and is open to anyone who regularly attends Christian worship in the local Authority areas of Birmingham and Solihull. You do not need to be a church leader, nor do you need to be an expert about your worshipping community.
Please go to the link below and add your voice so Birmingham Churches Together can understand better how to support you in God’s mission.
