Next Gen

Emerge – calling all emerging leaders! - An exciting new leadership development initiative will be launching in the Black Country in 2021, investing in emerging Christian leaders in every sphere of society.
Next Gen Review of 2020 - Despite lockdown, churches across the area have continued to work together to support children and young people in all four boroughs of the Black Country and we're excited to share a video which highlights just some of the ways that we've been able to continue to pursue the next generation together this year.
In the Spotlight…The King Alfred School, Gornal - Utter the phrase “Independent Christian School” and you will most likely conjure up mental images of expensive private establishments run by religious extremists who brainwash their pupils and refuse to teach Science or Sex Education. One new Christian school in Gornal is working hard to challenge this stereotype.


We’d love to help you connect to “Next Gen”. We believe that it is only when we listen to God and work TOGETHER that we will see our area transformed. Deb Chamberlain is our Next Gen Champion and will be happy to tell you more about our work with the Next Generation in the Black Country. Please drop her a line at and she’ll make sure you get connected to the right people.
