Hosted by SOHO 1st

The Winson Green Road Sanctuary Garden - The vision is to create a beautiful, peaceful place for those who visit the prison and the community at large.

Volunteers are invited to work together to begin helping the Sanctuary Garden to take shape. There will be a lot of tasks in which to take part: creating raised beds, planting, tidying and decorative work, and more...

Volunteer times are flexible but committing for 2-3 hours would be great!

Refreshments will be provided, by Companions for Hope, at The Bus Stop Cafe.

  • Google Calendar ICS

A lovely pop-up picnic on the Playing Field next to Edgbaston Reservoir. 

  • Hanging basket and worm composting workshops
  • BBQ, pot-luck picnic (bring food to share), and
  • Discussing activities around craft, sports & play, art etc....
  • Please contact us if there’s something you’d like to run or do on the day, or if you’d like to get involved somehow.

Companions for Hope, The Real Junk Food Project Birmingham, residents from Summerfield and the City Hospital Greenhouses team are involved but the door is open and we’d love to see you!

We can promise that on the day there will be plenty of opportunities to find out about what’s going on in the area i.e. join Winson Greeners on their regular litter picks, attend Summerfield Sessions music nights, shop at TRJFP Sharehouse. Plus find out what’s happening with the Playing Field site being developed by Birmingham Settlement.

So keep your eyes and ears open over the coming weeks as we start to share more details!

Story Nights #1: "The Gift" - Hosted by Parish Collective Birmingham

Story Nights #1: "The Gift" - Hosted by Parish Collective Birmingham

Story Nights is a informal, relaxed gathering where neighbourhood-based ministries, local church expressions and/or community groups can meet to hear one another's stories in order to connect and share inspiration.

The theme of Story Nights #1 is "The Gift" – Discovering Hidden Treasure in Our Places, inspired (in part) by Birmingham-based poet / spoken word artist, Bohdan Piasecki. You can check out his poem "The Gift" here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KiOW8ffYGAI

*Bring your appetites as food will be provided!

*It is a free event, we simply ask for 1) a donation towards the food and 2) that you bring a "found object" (that is, an object not usually considering spiritual or sacred, yet which connects you deeply to God, neighbour and relationships in or across neighbourhoods).

Together we seek to cultivate an awareness that God's gifts of hidden treasure are all around us – abundantly at hand!
