The Black Country Flag

We are passionate about seeing the Gospel proclaimed, lives transformed and churches planted in urban Britain, in working class and multi-cultural communities, reaching the unreached from other faith backgrounds, on our council estates and in our inner cities.

Our vision is to help people who don’t know Jesus come to know him and grow in him in order to see ‘Bearwood and Beyond ‘ transformed by the Gospel, to the glory of God.

Our specific focus is on Sandwell, West Birmingham and the Black Country.

We appreciate Gospel partnership in the following areas:


Enabling the planting of new churches and revitalisation of existing churches across Sandwell and the Black Country in order to serve the advancement of the Christian Gospel.

This may include
