Was this your response to the news of the election? Voter fatigue, suspicion of the motives behind the election, or fear for the future of our country has led many people to feel fed up with politics.
This is a time for God’s people to pray for wisdom, to seek God’s purpose and to proclaim God’s truth, to seek the Spirit’s help to live and speak with courage and clarity. How can we use our vote well? How should we use our influence for good? How can we remind everyone involved and affected by this election that there is a higher authority in our world than any earthly ruler? In this resource, from the Joint Public Issues Team, are some reflections on key biblical themes that will hopefully help put recent events into perspective.

For in him all things were created: things in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things have been created through him and for him.(Colossians 1:16)
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.
