CSW and Newfrontiers Church Leaders Weekend


Meeting with CSW (Christian Solidarity Worldwide)

One of the most challenging, certainly harrowing meetings I have had in recent weeks was with CSW. The images and stories of persecuted Christians from around the world have stayed with me and continue to haunt me. Our involvement with 222 Ministries means I have some understanding of what the Christian family are up against in Iran but I had little idea about North Korea, Nigeria etc.

Take a look at the web site http://www.csw.prg.uk/ and do what you can to inform yourself, pray and act on behalf of our brothers and sisters suffering for their faith.


Newfrontiers Church Leaders weekend in Milton Keynes


At the end of November, Beverley and I gathered with 340 other church leaders for a weekend in the new home of New Life Church Milton Keynes – an 800-seater warehouse. We had a great time.

Sessions by Steve Tibbert on Rest and Stef Liston on Joshua 1 were instructive and refreshing. The session by David Stroud outlining the vision to move towards 400 churches in the Newfrontiers network in the UK was challenging and inspiring.
