Building for Mission

St John’s Harborne is entering a new phase of it’s journey, as we look towards our upcoming building project. Over the coming months, there will be more events and gatherings to attend that are all part of this new venture we are calling ‘Building for Mission’. For us the physical development of our building is just a small part of God’s bigger purpose for us, in going out in mission, hence the name ‘Building for Mission’. Read about our Autumn term events below.
