Strategic Understanding of Evangelism liberates us all into effective witness

Church Planting is the proving context for what works in evangelism!

Having been called to church planting a long time ago, Bob & Mary quickly found that it was the acid test of evangelism effectiveness. As a pioneering church planting team you either crack the issues of what makes for effective evangelism in your context … or you stay rather on your own. And your failure to breakthrough and add new people to your team is ever before you as a constant challenge in a way that doesn’t happen in ongoing church life with the distraction of all its internal programs.

Expressions:Making a Difference

 

 Twenty eight stories to inspire and challenge, illustrating lessons to be learnt as fresh expressions of church make a difference to people's lives.

From the church for ragamuffins in Swansea, to the Divine Divas of Tadcaster, these new ways of being church demonstrate that God's Spirit is helping Christians live mission-shaped lives in a whole range of fresh contexts.

"Fresh Expressions show how the Church can reach out in new ways to those around us. We should be encouraged and inspired by these projects which are showing God's love in practical ways all over the country. I hope this DVD will help other church communities realise the wonderful potential they have to make a difference wherever they are."

Cafechurch Network Events 2011

 How to run a cafechurch - Training days

Would you like to run a cafechurch in your local high street coffee shop?

Come to a training day filled with worship, teaching & workshops that will equip you to run a cafechurch.

A cafechurch is a fresh expression of community on the high street. It brings communities into the relaxed café atmosphere of Costa Coffee and
other coffee shops to discuss issues from a faith perspective.

Rural Fresh Expressions on the Share Community
The Share Community is an online gathering place where people who are pioneering (or just interested in) new forms of church can rub shoulders with and support each other.

David Muir has started an interesting group called Rural Fresh Expressions looking at "How to start and maintain new and missional groupings of people centred on Christian faith, which will draw into them the increasing variety of people who inhabit our countryside".

The group can be found here (you will need to register). Do have a look at the rest of the website as there are some interesting and useful discussions and resources.

 
 
Training opportunity - FORM in Sheffield
form_flyer_for_web.jpg

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

“Form is a year of training and transformation.  It is about being disciples & making disciples. It has its home at St Thomas’ Church Philadelphia & The King’s Centre, Sheffield (Anglican / Baptist / Free Church).

The year is about being ‘formed’ – that means you’re shaped, fashioned & moulded into someone who more fully represents Christ to the world. The year is about God setting the foundation in your life you need so that you can continue to grow as a disciple & become everything it is that God made you to be.

Jesus didn’t take his disciples into a classroom to teach them how to best follow him. He invited them into his story & as they experienced life in his context of mission to the world, they became more like him. We believe we should do the same. Form is rooted & worked out through communities committed to mission – God’s activity of extending His kingdom of good in the world.

If you do Form you’ll become part of the St Tom’s community for the year.  You’ll have an apprenticeship within an area of ministry or mission in the church and learn as you become part of a passionate team.  You will also receive and be able to work through quality teaching and training from the St Tom’s staff and other leaders.
Form runs from September to June each year."
