Mission beyond the Parish
Part of our commitment as Christians is to give to those in need. All churches in the Birmingham Diocese, of which we are part, contribute to a fund to pay for clergy and support projects across all Birmingham parishes.
St Philip’s and St James make charitable donations each year which are distributed by the Mission Beyond The Parish Committee to charities in the UK and abroad.
Although we support a wide variety of Christian mission activities at home and abroad, we want to encourage our church congregations to prioritise our links and relationships with Rwanda, Malaga and Aston.
As well as financial support we, along with other Churches in the area, provide practical support to Solihull Churches Action on Homelessness, Solihull Welcome for Asylum Seekers, Christian Aid Lunches.
