A Word of Welcome


A very warm Welcome to the 31st Birmingham Catholic Charismatic Renewal Conference! Thank you for your continual support, prayer and presence, the Conference would not be the same without you! If you are a seasoned member of the Conference, if you have come for the last few years, if this is your first Conference, know that you are warmly welcomed.


The preparations for the Conference have been underway for many months, the writer of these few words of welcome does so during the Christmas Season, that journey of prayer that began during Advent, during which we hear the words: ‘Emmanuel, a word which God-is-with-us.’ The preparation for the Conference is something akin to the Advent journey, the Advent of God’s dawning presence amongst us.


The journey has been a little uncertain at times, but continually the Committee has recognised the abiding presence of Emmanuel, God-is-with-us.

We are delighted to be back at the St John’s Hotel for our 31st Conference.

After much prayer and discernment, the theme for Our Conference is: ‘The Body of Christ.’ As the Conference begins, we recognise that we form a small part of the Body of Christ, we gather as a Community of Faith, a community which is grounded in prayer and praise, the Word of God and the Celebration of the Sacraments, especially the Eucharist.


Pope Francis often describes the Church as ‘God’s Holy and Faithful People,’ maybe the Holy Father was inspired by the words of St Peter: ‘But you are a chosen race, a kingdom of priests, a holy nation, a people to be a personal possession to sing the praises of God who called you out of the darkness into his own wonderful light.’

(1 Peter 2:9-10).


The Church proclaims the Universal Call to Holiness, as you read these words of welcome, know that God has called (is calling!) you to holiness! Pope Francis celebrates this call and invitation so beautifully expressed in his Apostolic Exhortation, Gaudete et Exsultate (‘Rejoice and Be Glad’), On the Call to Holiness in Today’s World.


During this, our 31st Birmingham Catholic Charismatic Renewal Conference, we are being called to renew our call to holiness, a good place to begin might be to fully recognise and celebrate this call! The daily Prayer and Praise, the Healing Ministry, Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament, the wisdom and blessing of the Conference Speakers, culminating in Celebration of the Eucharistic, these are all daily invitations for to renew and celebrate the Call and Invitation to Holiness, as Pope Francis reminds us, this call is indeed in the everyday of our Lives.
