Urban Congress

We had an excellent day yesterday with Church of England Birmingham’s first Urban Congress.

​Over 100 people from more than 30 inner city and outer estate parishes came together to reflect on urban life and faith.

​There was excellent input from Barbara Glasson, Laurie Green, Anne Hollinghurst, Joe Aldred and Simon Heathfield. Lots of time for good discussion, stories from the parishes, good food, worship.

A wonderful atmosphere. I will write a proper report when the Steering Group meet to look at what happened, but it felt like the first step in a journey and a deeply significant day.
