I attended in 2002/03 and now I am the Vicar of the Church of the Ascension in Hall Green. I really enjoyed the training course which contributed immensely to my formation and growth as a Christian person and as a minister of the gospel. I really loved it.
I attended 1994/95 and now I am the Vicar at Licky Birmingham. My year at BCM gave me a solid foundation in all aspects of sharing the gospel both in word and deed with some of the most vulnerable of our city.
I attended in 2004/05 and now I am a Chief Currency Analyst for HYCM. My time at BCM taught me to preach the gospel and help the most vulnerable. It tapped me into the very lifeblood of what drives a city, and it was a privilege to work alongside such a gifted team of people. I made some lifelong friends and just thinking of my time there makes me smile.
I attended in 2001/02 and now I am the Children’s worker at St Stephen’s Church, Selly Park. During my year at BCM I learnt just how big Birmingham is and how to navigate it using the bus. I met people from all sorts of different churches and life backgrounds. And I made friends who loved me and pointed me to Jesus – and still do!
My highlight was working with children, as they have limitless enthusiasm to learn more about everything. This encouraged me to continue to seek God wholeheartedly. The biggest challenge was street evangelism. Speaking to strangers about the good news requires much bravery to step out of our comfort zone. But thank you, God, for a team which gave me great guidance in this area.
