New season, new staff for Birmingham Churches Together and RESTORE

As we welcome in Autumn, we are equally delighted to announce a new season for Birmingham Churches Together. Robert Mountford, who had been supporting the work through the pandemic now joins the team permanently on a part-time basis. We also welcome a new staff member, Maud Grainger, as our part-time Development and Support Worker.

Maud, a Quaker from Selly Oak joins us from Woodbrooke, a Quaker centre for learning and research. Maud, originally from Essex, made Birmingham her home 15 years ago. She lives here with her husband and two children. She is keen to serve the Christian community and is looking forward to a new time for Birmingham Churches Together and the years ahead.
