About this months One Mission Matters

A note written by Paul Chesterman, Admin Assistant to Mission in the Economy Officer in the Birmingham District, who writes...

Please find the latest copy of Mission Matters, which includes a considerable amount of our collective ministry within the Birmingham District and Connexion, signposting some of our work with refugees and asylum seekers.  This has been benefitted by our Methodist DNA of Social Justice and Social Holiness and the way we sincerely work collaboratively.

If you would like Revd David Butterworth to speak at any of your Circuit gatherings, to encourage and promote Social Justice and Inclusion, please let us know.

As agreed at Birmingham District Synod, we have taken care of the first Syrian refugee family in the wider West Midlands, under the Community Sponsorship Programme.  You will see from Mission Matters that this initiative was also a pilot for the Connexion.  It is pleasing to know the District churches generously supported the arrival of the first family, who will have been here 12 months on 15th February 2019. And so a heartfelt thank you to all those churches and fellowships which contributed prayerfully and financially. If your church would still like to contribute with any offertories or gifts, please forward them to our District treasurer.

I’m pleased to inform you that Solihull Methodist Church have started a year-long fund raising programme so that we can receive our second family. If you would like to have more information do please let us know and David would be happy to speak at any ecumenical or interfaith opportunities.
