One of TCC's aims is to make Tipton known throughout the West Midlands
and give it the reputation that it deserves. Tipton has an amazing historical story
about industry but it also has amazing people living throughout and we want to
be able to help in all we can with making Tipton a great community town that
pulls together as one big family.
On the 11th June 2016 Love Tipton held a world cafe event at Tipton Sports Academy in order to get the views and opinions from local residents of Princes End. Over 120 residents of all ages were invited to come along and give their veiws on 3 matters
3. What matters to them in Tipton
From the information given by local residents a report was put together which can now be downloaded by clicking on the download button.
Our 2015 fun day took place at one of our local schools, the R.S.A Academy. It was a fantastic day for all the family with games, inflatables, food, school performances and live bands. We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone involved in making this day such a success as it couldn't have been done without you. Also another big thankyou to the R.S.A Academy, Ockerhill Infants School, Silvertrees Academy, Jubilee Academy, ASDA, and our local Police for all their donations and time given.
The March Of Witness entered its 7th Year this year and again we had a great turn out from local churches coming together to remind our community that there is more to Easter than just chocolate and fluffy bunnies. As Pastor Steve carried the cross around the whole of Tipton, followed by the procession we shared the amazing sacrifice that Jesus did, not just for ‘Christians’, but for everyone.
In 2014 TCC launched out into our local care homes spear headed by the passion of Gavin Williamson for our older generation. Over the course of the year he has helped transform overgrown garden areas into places of relaxation where residents can enjoy and also began a midweek church service for residents who are not able to make it to church on a Sunday. Gavin has started some fantastic work and will continue for a long time to come, keep your eyes peeled though as we never know what Gav has in store for the future.
The Boscobel Project has been running for the past few years and every month TCC sends out a team of all ages to maintain a nearby residential estate that houses primarily residents of 60+. The aim is to help bring about community cohesion and break down social barriers through the older generation seeing the younger generation making a positive impact on their area. This also helps build community spirit and encourages everyone involved to make a difference and keep our local area clean and tidy. The team are responsible for clearing pathways, collecting grass cuttings, trimming hedges, removing overgrown bushes and trees, all things that the residents are unable to to do themselves.
2014 saw TCC hold its very first carol service inside our second church venue, the R.S.A Academy. Our special guests for the evening were Ockerhill Infants school who came and performed a number of Christmas carols and songs. It was a fantastic family evening which saw over 250 people from our local community come and join in all the fun. There was even a surprise appearance from santa at the end of the night who the children had been speaking to on Skype throughout the event on the big screen as he travelled to us in Tipton.
This was a special year as not only did we have the opportunity to hold our first carol service in our new venue but we also got to hold our annual carols by candlelight service at our waterloo street location as well. Silvertrees Academy were our guest choir for the event and once again the house was packed as friends and family gathered together for a festive evening together. We had a great time as Santa himself visited and brought gifts for all the children. If you didn’t manage to make it to any of our carol services make sure you don’t miss them in 2015.
Once again TCC were at the local Tipton Canal Festival with our stalls providing information on the Church and also playing crazy games with the kids. TCC also organized and provided the sound equipment for the staged marquee and which had live bands and acts for the community throughout the festival.
During 2014 TCC teamed up with our local police force for a family fun day that was open to all of Tipton’s residents. We had many stalls providing information on the Church and also playing crazy games. We also provided the PA system for the event and provided an opportunity for local bands and schools to perform for the community. We had a great turn out from the community and we look forward to the next event with our awesome local police.
