This Christmas we’re joining with churches all over the country to Follow the Star and discover the reality of the God who became part of the human story. Here are some of the events through which we are making that journey – and everyone’s welcome to join in.
The Christmas message in three words: God With Us. At Christ Church we celebrate Jesus’ birth and all that it means in a variety of ways and for all age groups: lively and reflective, young and old. Our hope and prayer is that everyone may find a way of relating to God more closely, at Christmas and throughout the year.
Loved for Life, running over the first two weeks of June 2017, was designed as a celebration: of God’s love for us, of the difference it makes in our lives, and of the 40th anniversary of the establishment of the congregation that became today’s Christ Church. It was also an invitation to everyone to discover God’s love for themselves.
Thy Kingdom Come is a global prayer movement which invites Christians to pray for more people to come to faith in Jesus. Christ Church is participating in a programme of events along with other churches in South Birmingham.
Here’s an opportunity to explore the Christian faith in an informal and relaxed setting. We’re running the Start course on six Tuesday evenings starting on 10 January.
At the first Christmas God broke into our world in order to bring us back to himself. Here are some of the ways we’ve been celebrating Jesus’ birth and the new life he brought, in our own building and at pubs and other places around the area.
Foundations matter! Without them, a building will eventually collapse. The Firm Foundations course is for anyone who feels that the foundations of their faith need laying or strengthening. Weekly sessions run on Mondays from February to April.
Christmas is an opportunity to take the love of God into homes, pubs, shops and people’s lives. Here are some of the ways that we have been doing that throughout December.
When Susan discovered that one side of her unborn daughter’s heart had failed to develop, meaning that the child was unlikely to survive beyond birth, she and husband Alan asked all their friends to pray. And they did, and they invited all their friends to pray too… and had they not done so, the photo on the left would never have been taken. Here’s Susan’s story.
