“If a brother or sister is naked and lacks daily food, and one of you says to them, ‘Go in peace; keep warm and eat your fill’, and yet you do not supply their bodily needs, what is the good of that?”James 2:15-16
The ‘hostile environment’ is a web of government policies designed to make life so difficult for people who cannot prove they have the right to live in the UK that they will choose to leave. The hostile environment deliberately inflicts destitution, encourages discrimination, and thrives on distrust. Our four Churches are calling for an end to the hostile environment.
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.
