Place of Welcome
Tuesdays from 1.00 p.m. until 3.30 p.m.
Places of Welcome is a network of small community organisations, including faith communities, who offer an unconditional welcome to local people for at least a few hours a week. The primary aim of the Places of Welcome network is that “Every neighbourhood has places where all people feel safe to belong, connect and contribute.”
We have joined this network to demonstrate:
An accessible and hospitable building, open at the same time every week.
Open to everyone regardless of their circumstances or situation, and staffed by volunteers.
A place where people actively listen to one another.
Offering free refreshments (at least a cup of tea and a biscuit) and basic local information.
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.
