Who is it for?
The Academy is for any follower of Jesus aged 16 and over. Even though the Academy staff are from Elim’s REACH department, the course is very much open to anyone irrespective of denomination or stream.
When will it happen?
Once a month on a Monday evening 7:30pm - 9:30pm except for August and December.
Where is it based?
Birmingham City Church, Parade, Birmingham B1 3QQ
It is hosted by, but not organised by, Birmingham City Church so any correspondence will be through the REACH department of Elim.
Who will be teaching?
