HOPE 2010 – 18plus mission

The 3rd – 5th of June 2010 saw a team of fantastic young Christians engaged on a 3 day mission entitled Hope 2010. The team had a very busy 3 days; getting to know each other, meeting local residents and engaging in social action within the Balsall Heath area. We visited some amazing youth groups, played football with local teenagers, and sampled some fantastic local food. We also made a visit to Birmingham Central Mosque, where we learned more about the faith and daily life of Muslim’s within the area, and returned the following day to help tackle their overgrown car park!

The mission was organised and run by Riverside, in partnership with Churchcentral and Balsall Heath Forum, and was also blessed by the inclusion of Christians from Kings Church Solihull and Ladypool Road Congregational Church.

We also visited projects at St John’s Sparkhill, and Edward Road Baptist Church so this truly was the body of Christ working together as one!
