Bev and I had a day with Dave & Liz Holden this week. Dave leads New Community Church Sidcup and is one of the key leaders in Newfrontiers - the family of churches to which The Beacon is part. As a church, they are also about to embark on a major building programme.
Newfrontiers is going through something of a transition presently with Terry Virgo, the father and founder, stepping back. Terry has handed ownership and leadership over to a number of apostles in the UK and throughout the world. Dave Holden is one of those. An apostle is someone who takes responsibility for a large number of churches.
Dave has taken an active interest in the Newfrontiers churches in the Home Counties, the leaders and all we are doing. He made some very helpful suggestions, extended warm invitations and helped me a lot in thinking through the implications of Newfrontiers transition. I am looking forward to Prayer & Fasting next week for the further updates.
