A few weeks ago for the first time I went to the far north of Birmingham to Sutton Coldfield in order to attend a Birmingham 2020 event. The Birmingham 2020 initiative has been set up in order to unite churches across Birmingham, in the vision of seeing 20 new churches started across the city before 2020. It was great to meet both with leaders of established churches (from different denominations and families of churches) and also with leaders of church plants involved in doing similar to ourselves.
It’s encouraging to know that the Church across Birmingham is increasingly working together for the good of this great City. Recognizing the essential role the starting of new God centered communities plays in this.
