At a Commissioning Service on Sunday 25th November 2018 we officially became one of two resourcing churches in the Diocese of Worcester (along with Top Church Dudley). This redesignation and a significant investment of funding from the Church Commissioners Strategic Development Fund enables us to play a particular role in the diocese, city and region.

Resourcing churches are being created across the Church of England as part a strategic initiative to see the church renewed and revitalized. All resourcing churches are seeking to do three things in partnership with their Diocesan Bishop:
plant new churches
revitalize existing churches
equip and encourage local churches through training events and ministry teams
