Communications

Welcome to the CofE Birmingham (CofEB) Communications page. 

Here you will find out how to stay connected with us and some guidance to help you communicate effectively.

We see that Jesus is a master communicator, equally effective jousting with politicians or talking ‘reaping and sowing’ with farmers, He makes the Kingdom of God accessible to all. Using simple stories, powerful parables, humour, and wit, Jesus often communicated to the individual and the crowd at the same time. All this to challenge long-held misunderstandings about God and to make a way for everyone to receive fresh revelation of the Love of the Father.

We hope to encourage connection with your communities and inspire you to creatively communicate the good news of the Gospel.
