How big a vision do you need to reach a city?
Together for the City tells the story of a group of churches from a variety of denominations, all in one city, who decided to work together in partnership in a way we never had before. We believed that we could do so much more together than we ever could on our own, and 2020birmingham was the name we gave to our gospel vision. A vision to see twenty new churches in ten years, in the UK’s second largest city.
In the book, we explore how a deeper reflection on the Gospel enables generous, self-giving collaboration. We share our experiences; some of the convictions we have grown in, lessons we have learned, the principles we have discovered, in a way that we hope will be useful for you in your context.
Together for the city is designed to help pastors, planters, leaders and all who are ready to attempt great things for God.
It was a bigger vision that led us to start a collaborative, church planting movement for our city back in 2010. Our prayer is that this vision may help others work together to reach the cities, and through them, the world.
