It's nearly the end of term! If you're looking for a little boost of motivation, this week's video reflection is by Director of Education, Tim Reid. He reminds us that the holidays are a time to refill the tank so that we can be recharged and look forward to the next academic year full of hope and promise.
In this week's video reflection, Dean of Smaller Churches, Alison Maddocks, invites us to step back from our daily routines and refresh our relationship with God.
We are so grateful for the National Health Service, which turned 74 yesterday. The NHS founders were motivated by the Christian faith, and that has made a difference in all our lives. Happy Birthday NHS!
A month from now, the eyes of the Commonwealth will be on Birmingham and the West Midlands as the Commonwealth Games begins. A reflection from David Hoskin, Area Dean of Greater Dudley Deanery, who is part of the Commonwealth Collective - one of 13,000 volunteers. It's widely recognised that it is the volunteers who will make the Games the event that it will be. And it's very similar in the life of the church.
