West Midlands - The Message

West Midlands

The Message has been rooted in the Midlands for a number of years. As our work in the area has continued to grow and increase, in 2021 we launched a new hub in the West Midlands and we look forward to continuing to boldly share the good news of Jesus in schools and in communities across the area.

With Hub Leader Greg Cooper, we’re launching community-transforming Eden teams, building up our creative schools work, equipping young people through Advance Youth and local prayer gatherings, and looking at opportunities for Christ-centred enterprise and work in prisons across the whole of the Midlands from our office base in Walsall.

Community Groceries

Edit is one of our Community Grocery members at Telford Community Grocery, which bridges the gap between supermarkets and foodbanks, helping keep families fed whilst also sharing the gospel.

Edit first signed up as a member when she was struggling to afford her weekly shop. Thanks to the grocery, money she’s saving on her food shop can go towards her children and better still, she’s found hope in Jesus and got baptised ! Edit is even volunteering at the Community Grocery too. She said, ‘Jesus is everything to me. The Community Grocery has save me, saved my family, saved my marriage and saved me financially. It’s a family for me and I love sharing my testimony with customers’.

And it’s not just Edit coming to know Jesus. Our partner church, Lighthouse Church, started five years ago with 12 people but by December 2023, they’re seeing over 1,000 people come along to church across two services with many of these being Community Grocery members!

Telling Their Mates

We love seeing young people get excited about sharing their faith. This is why up and down the country each month we get them together to encourage each other, pray together and learn the skills they need to be able to use every opportunity possible to tell their friends and families about Jesus.
