Jesus Shaped People (JSP) takes Jesus’ teaching to his disciples and gives it to us in an engaging and practical way. It distils Jesus’ teaching into these five areas:

  • Love for people
  • Teaching
  • Team building (and growing people)
  • Prayer
  • Prophetic witness

JSP will continue until July 25 as we look together at the final three areas of Jesus’ teaching to his disciples, team building (and growing people), prayer, and prophetic witness.

We will spend three weeks looking at each of these with the Sunday sermon and then more practical work in midweek groups. The Zoom Groups will be on Thursday afternoons or evenings (the evening group repeats what is done in the afternoon) from 1.30pm – 3.00pm and 7.30pm – 9.00pm.

To register for the Groups please contact enquiries@birminghamcathedral.com or ring 0121 262 1840

JSP makes a positive and significant difference to churches which do it well. This usually involves an increased sense of common purpose and energy, but it is different in each Church. It honours the history, people and context of the particular Church, and gives space within this for the Spirit to do some work. There will be an opportunity for us to come together at the end to discern what God has been saying to us through JSP and where we are being led next.

How can I help and be involved?

Please pray for Jesus Shaped People, for your cathedral, and for our Canon Missioner Canon Andy and team as we prepare.

Children’s Church:

During the pandemic, we have not been able to meet. If you are a child, young person, or parent, please could you let me know if you would like to join in? We can then work out the best way to do this.

This will be a really exciting time for the Cathedral community. We look forward to journeying with you. Please contact Canon Andy via email misisoner@birminghamcathedral.com if you have any questions,
