Birmingham as a city
Built on the heritage of industry and commerce, Birmingham is a modern and vibrant city. It is a centre for innovation and a hub of modern commerce, industry, entertainment, and learning. Birmingham is also the youngest city in Europe, having been rebuilt extensively after WWII. Over 80,000 university students attend one of the city’s five universities. Currently 45% of the population is under 30. The city is heavily investing in its 20-year “Big City Plan” a master redevelopment plan for the city centre, there is more investment capital being spent in Birmingham than London, Milan, and Paris. Birmingham (1.1 million) is the second city of the United Kingdom, a super-diverse city in the region of the West Midlands (4.3 million). There is currently a Muslim population of 27.5%, mainly Pakistani and Bangladeshi.
The need in Birmingham
Spiritually the church is small, some believe the “evangelicals” to be around 0.5% of the population. Currently we partner with 30+ churches. Most are church plants under 50 people that have been planted in the past 8 years. They are in need of workers, leadership, finances, maturity, encouragement and prayer, so that they can become sustainable and reproduce, as some have already done.
