Black Christian Directory
Britainʼs Black and multi-ethnic (BME) churches are amongst the largest in the country ‒ with several having a regular attendance of 4000+ – and are renowned for their spiritual fervency, their lively worship and their strong belief in the bible. Not only that, being a member of a Black church helps those who attend to develop additional useful skills such as public speaking, event organising, fundraising, singing, and volunteering which they have been able to utilise in the outside world. Increasingly, BME churches also run a wide range of community projects which are designed to help the vulnerable and disadvantaged members of the Black community.
The Black UK Christian Directory was specifically designed as a networking tool, having many uses for churches, businesses, organisations and individuals who wanted to connect with the burgeoning Black and multi-ethnic Christian community nationwide.
The first edition of the Black Christian Directory was launched in print in 2008. The foreword was written by HRH The Prince of Wales. There were over 4,000 listings offering goods, advice and services from within the BME Christian community.
The directory was republished in 2012 with the foreword written by our valued supporter of Keep The Faith and the Black Christian Directory, Dr Tayo Adeyemi (1964 – 2013), the founder and senior minister at New Wine Church.
We have relaunched the directory website linking it to Keep The Faith website which has a following of 32,000 registered subscribers of our newsletter and a further 16,000 social media followers to ensure all listings in the directory are promoted to our vast audience!
