The 2022 Commonwealth Games will take place in 14 venues across the West Midlands (plus one in London) between Thursday 28 July and Monday 8 August. One of the venues is Birches Valley on Cannock Chase, which will host the Mountain Bike racing on 3 August.

From 5.00pm on Monday 25 July to 5.00pm on Monday 8 August, two weeks of unbroken worship and prayer will take place at Elim Life Church, Pheasey, on the Walsall/Birmingham border. Prayer will be led by midlands-based church leaders/ members from many backgrounds, supplemented by visitors from around the UK. All are welcome to sign up to lead an hour of worship/prayer during the 336-hour relay. Information from Sarah at THIS ADDRESS

In conjunction with the Commonwealth Games, and bolstered by the recent revelations concerning Sir Mo Farah‘s trafficking into the UK, places of worship are being asked to promote the ‘It’s a Penalty’ campaign, which harnesses the power of sport to prevent the abuse, exploitation and trafficking of children globally.
