14th September 2017
It was great to see so many people at King’s last weekend for our annual Vision Sunday. It was an exciting and encouraging day (and great to be able to speak briefly at all six services!) as I shared our plans to launch a fourth site and to spend the next year focusing on discipleship. You can catch up here if you missed it or would like to listen again.
Following a week concentrating on King’s, the majority of my time this week has been spent with friends from the wider body of Christ.
On Tuesday and Wednesday I was at the Evangelical Alliance leadership summit which was held in Windermere, a beautiful place even in the rain. It was such an encouragement to hear about all that God is doing across the wider church in the UK. We spent much of our time discussing the findings of Talking Jesus, a fascinating piece of research which looked at what people in the UK know and think about Jesus, Christians and evangelism. It is well worth a look and you can learn more about its findings here.
Today I am travelling again, this time to join the national leadership of the FIEC (Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches), a movement made up of more than 500 churches in the UK. I shall be representing Newfrontiers and have been invited to speak. Please pray that I will be an encouragement to this group.
This Sunday at King’s we have the joy of baptisms at our services. I never grow tired of hearing stories of lives transformed by the power and person of Jesus. I look forward to seeing you on Sunday.
