New Appointment - Childrens Pastor
We are thrilled to announce Elaine Webster as the Assistant Pastor with responsibility for Children. Elaine has over 14 years of experience in children's ministry from working in the local church, leading venues at new wine and having a track record of reaching children and families outside of the church.
Last year Elaine launched her own curriculum "Connected" designed to help children develop hearts that are connected to God, each other and the community around them, which has been well received both in the UK and internationally.
Elaine will be joining us at the beginning of September from Harrogate. We look forward to welcoming her and releasing her to bring life to the children of Birmingham.
FAREWELL - JAMES PICKIN
Last week in church we celebrated all the work James Pickin has done for us with the Students in Birmingham and prayed for him as he leaves us to start his new role as a teacher. Today was James' last day in the office and while we are sad to see him go, we're excited for what's in store for him next and looking forward to Jeff taking our student ministry forward!
