ActBC is about encouraging gospel work in needy urban areas starting here in the West Midlands. We are encouraged by the passion we see for Gospel ministry and church planting in our country but are also concerned that not enough is happening to reach inner city and council estate communities.
Here in Sandwell and the Black Country we would love to see many new churches planted and existing churches revitalised so that people who don’t know Jesus might hear about him and come to know and grow in him.
We are asking you to stand with us and pray with us for this. If you would like to receive regular updates about this work, please sign up for our ActBC mailing list.
You can get a little flavour of what we have been doing to encouraging planting over the past few years here It has been encouraging to see new congregations start within our current premises, especially Nueva Vida, a Spanish speaking congregation and Sunday Night Church a café style church. We are praying that God will send labourers into his harvest field so that we can see Gospel work established in other neighbourhoods where there isn’t currently a meaningful witness.
Specific prayer-requests at the moment include for:
Jose and Bob at “The Hub” as they meet with people to offer ESOL classes. Pray for opportunities to share their faith in conversation.
A First Look Course introducing Jesus which we have been running after our Ladies ESOL class at Bearwood Chapel. Give thanks for the 6 ladies who have been coming along and pray that God will open their hearts to the wonder of the Gospel
For the Bristnall Estate where we have been doing regular door to door work over the past few years. Our prayer is that a couple of families would be open to us visiting to read the Bible with them and talk about the Gospel. This is also an area where it would be great to have a pioneer planting living.
We would love to share more about the work with you. Please sign up for regular updates straight into your email inbox.
