If you’re not from the West Midlands then chances are you have not heard of Wednesbury – unless you are an Ikea anorak. Even most people in the West Midlands don’t seem to know much about the place. Wednesbury is a small town of about 24,000 just off the M6 in the Black Country, situated between the bigger towns of Walsall, West Bromwich and Wolverhampton. And only 20 minutes from Birmingham.
We have lived here for just over 12 months and we moved here because this is where God’s trail of breadcrumbs has led us. We’re passionate about the local church have been helping to plant and lead Grace Church in Wolverhampton since 2011. We are now beginning to gather a team to partner with us in planting a church here in Wednesbury. It is a wonderful little town with a rich and proud heritage, a great community spirit and home to the tallest rugby posts in the world!
At a first viewing it seems that Wednesbury’s rich Christian heritage is in it’s past but our perception is that the Kingdom of God is here under the surface. The local church leaders are working hard but there is a great need for more Christian mission in this town. There is a great need for those who follow Jesus to serve him and his church here in Wednesbury.
