Urban Devotion Birmingham seeks to expand its work
‘Urban Devotion Birmingham’ is seeking a part-time Youth Connector to join the team in September 2020. Urban Devotion began in Perry Common in 2003, when Sam and Hannah Millar moved into Perry Common. Since then, the team has maintained its commitment to community transformation in four of the most disadvantaged areas of north-east Birmingham – Perry Common, Short Heath, Erdington Hall and Wyrley Birch.
In each area, Urban Devotion’s team members live in the community, praying, making connections, running youth clubs, working in local schools, playing football and more. Following the Covid-19 lockdown, the team has delivered meals, created craft packs and moved online, believing that God wants to write a new story in Birmingham, where children, young people and families from some of the least advantaged parts of Birmingham embrace a bright and hopeful future.
Urban Devotion is looking for a new team member, a person who loves meeting new people and who gets excited by the idea of building relationships with young people on the streets, in parks and in schools. A particular request is that, in a landscape dominated by Covid-19, the new team member will bring fresh ideas and perspectives, in order to reshape work among children and young people. The deadline for applications is 5pm on Friday 31 July.
