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.
Connecting with you
Here you will find a wealth of resources for use in meetings, services or for personal growth and encouragement. Look out for the monthly sessions with the Bishops and interviews with ministry representatives.
A monthly email with an article by the Bishop along with CofEB news, opportunities and events for connecting with the heart of CofEB and its activities.
A weekly email for those in local church leadership helping to follow latest legislation and instructions.
These occasional Zoom sessions are a great way to attend a subject-based meeting from your own base. Subjects can include church finance, environmental sustainability, generational ministry and much more.
