My primary focus at the moment is encouraging people to get involved in urban church planting here in the West Midlands. There is a harvest field here, desperate for workers. We want to see the Gospel reaching our estates and inner cities. Is this something that you could partner with us on?
There are three ways in which you could partner with us:
This is the biggest need and the most straight forward thing to do. Could you set aside 5 minutes each day to pray for us, to pray for Gospel opportunities and to pray for the Lord to raise up additional workers in the Harvest Field here.

Thank youto those who have already generously giving. Your support has already enabled us to purchase 500 copies of Luke’s Gospel of which we gave away about 300 at the Commonwealth Games. In addition we have been able to pay my National Insurance contribution for the past year.
If you want to help financially support urban church planting here in the West Midlands, please check out the Faithroots Donations page.
You can either give via paypal or Stripe if you want to make a one off donation. However, as both Stripe and paypal take a percentage of what you give as an administrative fee, you may want to set up a standing order directly. Please get in touch if you would like our bank details to do this.
Your support will enable us to purchase evangelistic resources such as Luke’s Gospels to give away. It also helps us to keep the Faithroots site up and running. Some of what you give is used for personal support, primarily enabling us to pay in my National Insurance and pension contributions. Over time, we’d like to raise support to enable others to come and work alongside us here.
Come and join in
Most of all, we are especially on the look out for people who are considering coming to serve here in the West Midlands, helping to make disciples of Jesus in urban contexts. Our prayer is that as people become embedded into communities and share their faith, this will lead to others trusting in Jesus and eventually for some new churches to start.
The idea is that potential pioneers move into the West Midlands initially with a 2-3 year commitment. This will give you the opportunity to get to know neighbours and introduce Jesus to them whilst at the same time benefiting from training for Gospel ministry.

It may be that at the moment, this doesn’t seem to be something you personally are called to do but that you know others who might be. Please feel free to put them in touch with us.
Once again, thank you to everyone who has got involved in supporting urban gospel ministry here both by giving and praying. Please do take the time to see whether God might be encouraging you to take that further step of faith and come.
