Why work should be part of welcome
We are all children of God. This understanding of our common humanity is the starting point for many Christian approaches to public policy issues. We emphasise the importance of treating all people with dignity, and believe that everyone should have the opportunity to experience life in all its fullness.
This is why the four Churches in the Joint Public Issues Team are calling for an end to the government’s hostile environment policy, and also for asylum seekers to have the right to work. See here for more.
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.
