Our purpose is to share the love of Jesus with people and bring life and hope to a variety of communities in the Wolverhampton and Birmingham areas.  Investing in people’s lives in this way will build bridges for future follow up, as we desire to reach and disciple people from many nations. We want to equip, train and challenge Christians to reflect Jesus Christ and to use their God given gifts to bring hope to the world.  As a result, we hope to see the community around the church impacted. We also hope that all participants will go away strengthened in their faith and with a deeper desire to share their faith with their friends back at home.

You will be part of an international team, ministering alongside a new church plant in Wolverhampton and others in the Birmingham area, reaching out with the love of God and the message of the Gospel. You will help the church members reach out to its ethnic diverse neighbourhood through various projects. We will give you orientation and training to help you share your faith.

The programme will aim to be varied and related to children, teenagers and adults. You will have the opportunity to connect with people through the means of home visits, get involved with visual Arts, sports and target group events like a ladies night, as opportunities to connect with young and old.
