Locked In Limbo
Research shows that stateless people are often detained for months and even years, without any real prospect of their cases being resolved. This is because immigration systems do not have appropriate procedures in place to identify those who are left without nationality and to protect stateless people.In total 110 religious and faith leaders have signed a statement urging the UK Government to do more to welcome those who no longer have a country to call their home. All have a shared commitment to protecting human rights and promoting human dignity. The statement is calling for action on the part of the UK Government to review its policies towards stateless people as many end up in prolonged and pointless detention while the Home Office tries to remove them from the UK.

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.
BEARWOOD BAPTIST CHURCH aims to be friendly, welcoming and inclusive;
centred around the love of God revealed through Jesus.
OUR DESIRE is to express this through our worship of God and our service and care, for one another and for those in the community around us.
OUR INTENTION is to reflect the love and grace of God to all whom we meet.
WE SEEK to follow Jesus, and encourage others to follow Him too.
