ENOUGH is an extra-ordinary prayer event and asking together is one of the things that makes it special. Join Adam & Susie Voke in the video below and find out why asking together matters when we gather to pray.
Please get the 7th July in your diary. You can find out more information about ENOUGH – HERE
One of my favourite churches in the New Testament is the church in Antioch.
This church was based in one of the most influential cities of its time, and yet its outlook went way beyond simply reaching its own city (they could surely have a got a great thing going there). Instead, they were ready and eager to release people in their callings to see God’s kingdom spread across the known world – and they were even willing to send their superstars to see it happen.
We [Pete & Sarah Benton] believe that God is calling us to plant a New Ground church in the heart of Berlin.
We would love you to join us as we pray for this influential city and the new church. Known as the ‘atheist capital of Europe’, Berlin is a city that desperately needs more churches that will preach, and live out, the Gospel of Jesus. We are really excited about joining other churches already in the city in seeking to bring the Kingdom of God to this key European and global city.
Guy and I took our first trip to Serbia last weekend to attend a leaders conference organised by Miro and Sneza. Both of them have been to Westpoint and Commission prayer and have developed strong links with Kings church Epsom and Godfirst Christchurch. Although originally from Slovakia, they left its relative security and followed the call of God to Serbia about 10 years ago.
It’s a question that many of us ask at one time or another.
Church planting is one of the very best ways of spreading the Gospel and seeing God’s kingdom grow, and so it makes sense that as we are looking at what God might want for us in our lives, we consider church planting.
The question of calling is a funny one. It’s a word that means different things to different people (we look in a bit more detail how the Bible uses the word in this post). Suffice to say that we have all been called to the Mission of God, and so the church planting question should be a live one for us all. In this article we will be exploring a few questions that you can ask to help you discover whether planting a church is the right thing for you to do.
The Relational Mission business link day will provide an excellent opportunity for entrepreneurs and those in business to gather, network together and be connected to the Kingdom mission of Relational Mission.
The wealth of experience, creativity and insight we have in our churches amongst our workplace and business leaders is amazing. We are trusting God that by gathering together we will not only create valuable relationships and great business opportunities, but will inspire a vision for what we can do together, to serve and support those pioneering and church planting across the nations through business creation and entrepreneurship.
So if you are an entrepreneur, a business leader or manager we would love for you to join us!
High up on a hill outside Alcalá de Henares, once home to Cervantes – author of Don Quijote, with stunning views across the Sierra mountain ranges and back to Madrid, sits the retreat centre that hosted El Encuentro, our annual time away.
The purpose of the weekend was spending time together, deepening relationships, enjoying God and having space to really hear Him clearly, away from the buzz and rush of the city that we love and live in day to day. The weather was good too, so there were opportunities to explore and savour the views.
At our last ENOUGH evening we introduced and prayed into a prophetic word we had regarding the Hanseatic League.
As a family God has directed us to a number of mission fields. One of these is Europe, stretching from the UK across mainland Europe and up in the Scandinavian nations. God has spoken to us recently about how he wants us to develop our strategies for more churches in this region.
My name is Angela Vaine, I’ve been married to Geoff for 33 years, we have 3 grown up sons and an ever growing family. Geoff and I have lived in delightful Bridport for nearly 5 years. We are part of the Leadership Team at Beacon Church Bridport and we were asked if we’d like to attend the 2 year Foundations Future Leadership Course in 2013-2014. At the time of applying only one place was available and it was decided that I should attend then. Geoff is currently studying on this year’s Foundations Course in Bournemouth.
