Grenfell fire tragedy: 'An amazing outpouring of kindness and generosity'
A Baptist minister has spoken of the relief efforts following the fire at Grenfell Tower – including those of his own congregation. Westbourne Park Baptist Church in West London is around a mile from Grenfell Tower. ‘Members of the congregation know people who live or have lived in the tower, teach children who live there and are caring for those taken to hospital,’ said its pastor Jem Sewell. 'As a result, there is a huge impact on us and a desire to help.’
Bearwood is a bustling, vibrant area, just over the border of Birmingham and within the borough of Sandwell, part of the famous ‘Black Country’. It is a meeting point for people of diverse ethnic backgrounds, life experiences and ages with rich histories, which are reflected in our church congregation.
The site is in two parts: a section of church pages about us, and wider information about Bearwood in our community pages. Please remember we are not responsible for content on other websites we link to.

WE SEEK to follow Jesus, and encourage others to follow Him too.
