3rd June Building tomorrow’s Church today: Worship. We live in a  rapidly changing world. Historic churches however tend to value tradition and permanence. They can often be characterised as conservative institutions.  The Church Jesus founded  however was  a dynamic movement that He was building in a way that meant it could take the offensive (‘and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against her’). In this series we look at some of the values of Church (values carry permanence) and some of the practices that are more flexible as we consider the challenges of the future. Click here for the discussion notes


10th June Building tomorrow’s Church today: Global Partnership Special. As part of a special weekend series of events around global mission, Dave and Rachel talk to Richard and Kadeem about reaching the world with the good news of the Gospel.


17th June Building tomorrow’s Church today: Leadership: Ephesians 4:11-13. An absolute priority in building tomorrow’s Church is the role of leadership. Bill Hybells says ‘When a leader gets better, everyone wins’. The Church in the UK is looking hard at leadership and recognising traditional models of leadership need to change. In fact perhaps these traditional models have contributed to the decline of the Church and we need to re-imagine the practice of leadership in the C21. The passage in Ephesians looks at some diverse leadership roles in the Church and how they are ‘gifts’ to the Church from the risen Jesus. Download Discussion notes
