Seeking Justice in Birmingham with Citizens UK
March 7, 2018
04:30 pm - 07:00 pm
Birmingham Town Hall
Birmingham, United Kingdom, B1 1
One of our core values as an emerging church is Service + Justice. We want to partner with other religious and secular organisations to seek the common good of Birmingham.
We’re really new and so we’ll be exploring what that commitment looks like for a while. One possibility is becoming a member of Citizens Birmingham, an alliance of organisations working together for systemic change.
On 7 March, you are invited to attend a gathering of Citizens UK. Please read the invitation below, from one of the Citizens leaders. Note that you will need to sign up using their Eventbright website link.
New Inclusive Church folks will meet at 4:30p outside the Town Hall and then sit together. This is a chance to see and explore one way that we might engage in social change and justice as a congregation.
Doors open: 4pm | All seated: 4.50pm | Assembly: 5pm – 7pm
Last month, Birmingham was announced as the 2022 host of the Commonwealth Games. Delighted with the news of this great sporting and cultural opportunity coming to our region of the UK, we will be hosting a celebration event as our Spring Assembly for 2018.

Amidst joyful celebration, powerful testimonies and cultural performances we will seek pledges from the Bid Team and their partners on a set of people’s guarantees raising aspirations which benefit communities.
