Three days of memorials are underway to remember a pioneering Jamaican Bishop who founded an international church movement in Birmingham, when he migrated to the UK in the 1950s.
Bishop Sydney Alexander Dunn founded the Bethel United Church of Jesus Christ in Handsworth in 1955. Over seven decades his form of the faith was taken up all over the world
Bishop Dunn gave more than his youth, he gave his entire life to the church.
Since his death in July, it has been a time of reflection for the many who will miss him.
- Friends of Bishop Dunn pay their respects to him
Bishop Dunn arrived in Britain in 1954 from Jamaica as part of the Windrush Generation, with just £14 to his name.
He settled in Birmingham, getting a factory job in Aston. His fiancée soon joined him and the pair married.
However, no church represented their Apostolic beliefs, so Bishop Dunn up his own, at first in a house in Handsworth.
- Hundreds turn out for Bishop Dunn's funeral procession
The congregation soon outgrew that space, and the first Bethel United Church of Jesus Christ opened its doors in Handsworth a few months later.
It would become the first of 42 more churches across the UK.
Over the decades Bishop Dunn's ministry extended as far asLiberia, Russia, America Canada and his homeland Jamaica.
Bishop Dunn's biggest physical legacy is arguably the 2,500-seat Bethel Convention Centre in West Bromwich opened in 2001 - after 15 years in the planning.
It was one of the first BAME-owned venues of its kind in the country.
Bishop Dunn was an inspirer and a visionary for thousands across the world, whose legacy started in the Midlands.
