We are well underway with our search for a new Rector for St Martin’s Church. Our consultation process has now closed. We received an amazing 230 responses to our consultation to inform our ‘Parish Profile’. Thank you to everyone who took part.
Our Parish Boundary walk last Sunday was great fun. The sun shone as we walked and stopped at various places to pray. The picnic was a most welcome end to our time together. A big thank you to Christina and Mike for organising it. If you missed it, hope to see you the next time!
There is now the latest sermon recordings on our website! The latest sermons from the series Take Another Look – Stories of Jesus You Think You Know are up on the website. These can be found on our recordings page by visiting the link or they can also be found the drop down menu of ‘Prayer and Worship’ at the top of the page. You are able to hear them online or visit our Sound Cloud page to download them. There will be an archive section on our Sound Cloud page so you can hear past recordings. Image – Esparta (Flikr)

St Martins is one of 7 churches taking part in The Birmingham Churches Winter Night Shelter, which sees each church open up its building to 12 men each night to stop them sleeping rough on the streets. This is running from 18th January until 8th March. All the guys that come are given a hot meal as well as the opportunity to talk and make friends with all those who are volunteering. We believe this is a great opportunity to show the love of Jesus to the people of Birmingham. If you would like to volunteer to help out at the night shelter please email email@example.com or call the parish office on 0121 600 6020. If you know someone who wishes to be referred to the night shelter, they are welcome to come along to our drop in coffee morning on Monday 10am-12pm to refer themselves or visit SIFA Fireside in the mornings during the rest of the week. Please pray that our guests will be renewed and refreshed during their time with us. Please thank God for our volunteers and for equipping us
