The Black Country Urban Industrial Mission was set up in 1976 to deliver a local ecumenical programme of mission in the economy to the Black Country Boroughs of Walsall, Sandwell, Dudley and the City of Wolverhampton. It is a registered charity and a company limited by guarantee. The team consists of chaplains, ordained and lay, drawn from several denominations.
