2024 will be a big year for Unity.

As we gather, celebrate and imagine all that can be done in partnering with God and each other for 2024. As we announce this vision for a whole year’s Together programme, we hope to see this unity movement unwrap the greatness of our God and the reckless reach of His grace.

With Together Festival delayed until 2025 we're spreading the together message out across the Black Country. Numerous together events through out the year will culminate in a big ‘Together’ moment on November 16, where more than 2,000 are expected to gather for an indoor event suitable for all ages.

Already we have some surprises lined up to make that event -  Together For 24 unforgettable, just like our fabulous Together 2020

Scroll down, take a look and please get involved with all these opportunities to pray, worship, learn and grow together. You will find chances to do better business together, specific opportunities for young people, church leaders, families and more.
