Living Stones is committed to bringing the presence of God near to the world by donating educational supplies and practical support to help improve the lives of people in need. We coordinate in-house projects and also partner with other specialist projects both nationally and internationally. To learn more, or to donate towards these missions, please fill in a contact form or call the church office.
We often work in conjunction with the Riverstones Foundation, a sister charity who run Common Ground Projects. In addition to our own community-oriented programmes, we also work in close partnership with other projects in the Birmingham and Sandwell areas. You will often find our teams coordinating events at local parks, such as: Get Active! which is affiliated to Run England the official England Athletics recreational running project which aims to get the whole nation running, a weekly ladies’ “sweet treat” coffee morning and other family-based leisure events. Our “Praise in the Parks” team present live music and dance for all to enjoy. Look out for our bright yellow Playbus – the God Mobile – you can join us on board. For details of when and where to find us, call or email the church office.
Also, there are several national organisations that we support including: The Jericho Road Project, Christian Concern and its sister organisation The Christian Legal Centre, as well as The Christian Institute.
Being a house of prayer for all nations, we have a heart to help meet the needs of people living in impoverished rural communities overseas. Our vision is to bring hope, restoration and reformation to these communities.
The Esther Project is an overseas mission we actively support financially and practically. The objective of this project is to help alleviate the personal and social issues that adolescent girls face in impoverished rural areas. We are currently raising funds towards the costs of providing welfare and education to these young ladies. To watch a moving video about how this mission started and to donate to this worthy cause, visit our Esther Project page.
We have established and run a campaign called The Ezra Project. The aim is to help finish a dilapidated school building and it’s grounds so that the children can learn in a well-equipped and safe environment. Not only do we supply their educational materials, school uniforms and books, but we also contribute towards the costs of supplying water, power and building materials.
