St Basil’s Sleepout 2013

Thank you so much to everyone who sponsored the three of us from St. Martin’s who did the St. Basil’s Big Sleep Out in December.  It was cold and exhausting, but at least it didn’t rain and it was fun to meet so many people for such a special event.

We are still collecting in the last bits of our sponsorship money, but between us we have already raised over £700 (not including Gift Aid)!  At the event we were part of a much larger group of young people from churches all over Birmingham (about 17 of us).  We are hoping to find out how much we all raised together, and will let you know when we find out…  Thank you all again for helping us to support this fantastic charity.  If you would still like to make a donation then you can give cash or cheques (payable to St. Basils) to Oli Preston or you can donate online through

Calling all Students…

We are launching a new student group at St. Martin’s starting on Wednesday 29th January at 1:30pm.

This is for you whether you are here for a few years or visiting on a short term placement. Our location in the Bullring is a great place to meet up, worship, grow in our faith and think about God’s mission through us. Students at St Martin’s come from Britain and all over the world attending the many universities and colleges across the city. There are several services so it is not always easy to meet up with other students after church.

This week we will meet in the Tea Lounge. Please come along as we plan for this term or get in touch with Dom (the curate) on
