Family is an important part of the culture of Jubilee. It’s one of our five values which we aim to live out together. We believe that the church is a supernatural super-family tied by something thicker than blood. We forgive mistakes, celebrate each other’s victories and work towards growing up into the likeness of our Father.
As part of helping people to find out whether Jubilee Church is the place where they should be, we hold Exploring Jubilee evenings. Some of our newer folks have kindly contributed to this blog post telling us their experience of joining the Jubilee family.

We ‘visited’ Jubilee back in February 2018 after a very challenging season in our lives. Although we have a number of friends who are part of the Jubilee family, our experience ‘visiting’ quickly became a regular occasion.
We were made to feel very welcome, we were incredibly loved & encouraged to simply ‘be’, this was exactly what we needed. We have experienced & have been blessed by the verses in Isaiah 61 which are at the very heart of Jubilee Church Solihull.

We’ve always felt really welcome at Jubilee. It feels like we’ve been planted in really good soil. We’ve been particularly struck by the inclusiveness and also by the consistent encouragement to be courageous and step out. We love the prophetic edge and the hunger we see to follow the Holy Spirit’s leading. We’ve found real life in Life Group and plenty of opportunity to get involved in midweek activities. Plus there’s good coffee and plenty of cake – what’s not to love?!
I am really enjoying the ‘Exploring Jubilee’ course that we are doing as part of our new life group in Leamington. The course involves eating together (the food has been amazing) and different members of the leadership team have come to speak to us about the vision and values of Jubilee Solihull. I love the way that not only have we heard about family, authenticity, honour, courage and passion but they have also been demonstrated by each person that has come to share with us.
I was impressed by the welcome that we received when we first came to Jubilee and I liked the fact that church openly displayed its core values. Now 10 months later as I am undertaking the exploring Jubilee course (and enjoying the excellent course meals) I am constantly delighted to see that these values are evident in every aspect of the church’s culture. It is refreshing to be part of a church family that has not only clearly considered its values but is committed to living them out. Serving the local community in a kind and honouring way is important to me and this is exemplified by the work carried out for example by the Children’s Storehouse.
Thank you to all who contributed. We are so pleased you have found your family home.
