Fifty years after the death of Martin Luther King, how do we regard his ministry, activism and its relevance for today? Bright Black Forum is convening this conference to explore and provide a more holistic and comprehensive appraisal of MLK’s work, whether his non-violent struggle bore fruit and whether it is relevant in today’s context. 

Meanwhile Luther King House has produced a series of reflections from within its community to mark the 50th anniversary of the death of Martin Luther King. The reflections recognise the ways he continues to inspire us to work for justice and righteousness in our world. To download click here.

Bearwood Road 2 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.
