Mike Branscombe






Assistant Priest: Rev Elsie Blair-Chappell


I was licensed to St Martin’s in 2008. I am mostly involved in leading and preaching at the 9.30 am services and occasionally at the Crossing. In additional to regular commitment to the 6pm, Thursday services, I am also the coordinator for the Prayer Ministry at the Crossing and for Healing on the Streets ministry. You can follow the link Prayer and Worship or www.healingstreamsbirmingham.org.uk  for more information.

I was born in Brazil and I came to England in 1974. I am married to Stephen and we have two adult sons.

Prior to my ordination in 2003 I was a Primary school teacher. Then I taught children with Special Education Needs on both primary and secondary sectors specializing in Dyslexia. My involvement with the church at St Martin in the Bull Ring goes beyond my role. I see it as God’s call to me at this time of my life.

Please do come and see us sometime.
