Serving at BCC

Jesus both declared and modelled serving!

He said that he came to serve, not be served.

He washed his disciples’ feet the night before going to the cross.

The bible says he took the very form of a servant.

One of the best ways to become known and needed is to serve on a team regularly.

We have so many great and fun ways you can get involved!

Please place a check against those ministries from the list below that you like to know more about - and one of our team leaders will get in touch with you to let you know more!

Admin & Office Support
The Admin & Office Support Team supports all the different functions of ministry at BCC. We help ministry staff make sure that information flows well and that all our resources are available and functional across our full range of ministry operations. The admin and office team promotes a friendly, helpful and professional environment ensuring that all people who connect with BCC are cared for, whether attenders or visitors.
BCCKids
The BCCKids team enables children to have a genuine experience of God through creative bible teaching, worship and fun activities. BCCKids meet during both the 9am and 11:15am service and the ministry is organised into a number of different age groups.
BeOne (Students & 20s)
BeOne is our student and 20s ministry which meets twice a week in term times. On Sundays we meet from 1-2pm (after the 11:15am service) to eat together, compete in quizzes and then finish with a devotion or testimony. Our life group meets on Wednesdays in the BCC Café where we work through a book of the Bible and ask questions of the text.
Café
The Café Team at BCC exists to help provide a relaxed and welcoming environment where people can meet outside of a main service, be served drinks and snacks, meet new people and connect relationally.
Campus Pastor
BCC has a vision to plant a number of campuses around Birmingham, and each campus needs to be led by a local campus pastor, or team of pastors.
Car Parking
The Car Park team are the very first people greeting people into BCC on Sunday mornings and at events. It is a vital ministry as car parking can be stressful for people as they arrive, and so the welcome guests receive can really make a difference to the whole atmosphere on the site. This team guide people to parking in order to maximise the space available, and helps steer people to alternative parking once our on-site car park is full.
CitYouth
CitYouth is BCC's youth ministry and it exists to disciple young people of secondary school age. CitYouth currently meets on Sunday mornings (11:15am Service) and Wednesday evenings (7-9pm). On Sunday mornings we are called CitYouth Church and we host big games, interactive bible teaching and relevant ministry. On Wednesday evenings are called Tribes and it's where we host fun small group sessions.
Events
As a city centre venue with a large contemporary auditorium, BCC hosts a lot of city-wide, national and international events. As a member of the Events Team, you would be helping us prepare for, host, deliver and execute events at BCC to a high standard of professionalism and hospitality. You may well already serve regularly in a particular area of the church, and be asked to offer your skills in that area towards making an event a success.
Foodbank
Birmingham Central Foodbank exists to transform the lives of local individuals and families by showing God’s love and hope in action through the provision of practical support. Twice a week at Birmingham City Church we give out food parcels to those who have been referred to us by support agencies.
Graphic Design
We make use of graphic design in a wide variety of ministry settings, including video, social media, PowerPoint presentations, discipleship materials, posters, flyers and handouts.
Hosting & Welcome
The Hosting Team are the ‘first friendly face’ of BCC once our guests and attenders are inside the building, and they are crucial to a great welcome at BCC. Our role is to enable everyone to feel at home, providing information and directions when they arrive on campus. This is important for everyone who comes to BCC and especially for new guests who may be unfamiliar with church. The team also plays a really important role in making BCC ‘happen’ on Sunday mornings, showing people to seats, serving communion, gathering up our tithes and offerings and providing a headcount.
Info Point
The Info Point Team provides a helpful, friendly and efficient central point in our lobby where people can be supported in their enquiries and practical needs. People can come to the Info Point with a wide variety of requests for help. The Info Point team handles all of these for us on Sundays and at key events.
Lifegroups Leading & Hosting
The minimum for a Life Group at BCC is meeting together, reading the bible together and praying together once a week, once every two weeks or once a month. Some groups also add a time of worship to this formula and may also follow and deliver the study materials that we produce for our Central Campus Life Group. Groups can also meet on-line via Skype or Zoom.
Media & Lighting
Our Media and Lighting team look after the projection of all our media on the screens in the auditorium, including song lyrics, video and PowerPoint slides. They are also responsible for setting the lighting to accompany a service or an event in an appropriate way.

BCC support missions in locations in the nation and around the world in a variety of ways, from street mission in Birmingham to churches planted in India and Coron.

Pastoral Care
Pastoral care is offered to people attending BCC in a wide range of ways, including conversation in person, phone calls, visitation and new-guest follow-up, all of which aim to link people back to church and into the ministries which will help them the most.

Security

Sermon Translation
