History of Hall Green United Community Church

Two Congregations become one

Hall Green Methodist Church and Sparkhill United Church started worshipping together every week in January 2008. To show our commitment to each other, in September 2008 we signed a Declaration of Intent. During 2013 a Sharing Agreement was agreed which formalised our shared usage of and responsibility for the premises.

On 19th October 2014 we adopted a new constitution and officially became Hall Green United Community Church.

We continue to worship and serve God together in our community.

Our denominations

Our church belongs to three Christian denominations, reflecting our history.

 

Hall Green Methodist Church was founded in 1924, and is part of the Birmingham Methodist Circuit that came into being on 1st September 2011.

The Birmingham Moravian Church was founded in 1968 to formalise a growing number of Moravians from the Caribbean who had been meeting together for many years. In 1975 it merged with the former Sparkhill United Reformed Church to form the Sparkhill United Church.

There had been a Congregational Church in Sparkhill since 1902 and then in 1972 the church decided to join the United Reformed Church and so became known as Sparkhill United Reformed Church.

In 1975 the church merged with the Birmingham Moravian Church to form the Sparkhill United Church.

What is a Christian?

The Christian faith teaches that it is possible for absolutely anybody to have a fresh start, whatever they have done in their life. Being a Christian is not about going to church, living a good life or living in a Christian country. It is not even about believing in God. It is about being a follower of Jesus Christ and having a relationship with him. At first sight, this might seem impossible: Jesus Christ was born about 2,000 years ago in the Middle East and was executed by the authorities when he was aged about 33.

 

It is about being a follower of Jesus Christ and having a relationship with him.

 

But at the heart of the Christian faith is the belief that Jesus was, and is, God in human form and that he lived, died and came back from the dead. He then returned to heaven. His life, death and resurrection enable humanity to have a relationship with God.
