Things are changing in the United Reformed Church and the future will bring new and exciting opportunities in being equipped for discipleship and mission as part of Walking the Way. Living the Life of Jesus Today.
Crossway United Reformed Church will soon be moving from its current address in the Elephant and Castle, south London, to a newly-built site 400 metres away.
The building is due to be handed over in December 2016, and the congregation is busy getting ready to introduce the church to their neighbours in the community.
The Revd Peter Stevenson was appointed as Special Category Minister in 2009 tasked with building a church, a congregation and a community. 'The new church building gives the church confidence that it has something significant to offer to the community,' he said.
URC Synods and local churches are benefitting from vision events from the Fresh Expressions team and associates.
These dynamic training events are designed to introduce participants to the concept of new expressions of church, helping to change mindsets through story-sharing, discussion and questions.
vision events can be part of a Synod mission strategy, or they can be for individual churches. They consider what it really means to be Church in the 21st century, and how we might share the love of Jesus with generations who have not seen a Bible.
And can I, truly, say ‘Amen’ to that?
Whose father is He? Mine or yours or Theirs?
When, honestly, if They fell down the stairs,
evaporated on the evening air, I’d rather.
Have I said ‘Amen’ to Our Father?
