We welcome . . .

. . .  John McGinley as our guest this Sunday morning. He will be speaking to us on Mission and Discipleship.
John is New Wine’s Regional Director for the Midlands and East Region and Vicar of Holy Trinity Church, Leicester – a resource church seeking to encourage and support the mission of churches in Leicestershire and beyond.
John has written a book called Mission-Shaped Grace which is an attempt to capture what John believes God has been teaching His people about mission in our modern-day culture.
It’s great we can meet John as he will be joining us for our Church Weekend in June

New term, new book.

What kind of church is ABC? What is at the heart of ABC? What kind of church should ABC be?

Well, that’s quite enough questions for the time-being and questions which take some careful thought to answer. Over the coming few months we will be using the letter to the church in Ephesus to help give us some answers. The letter is an epic treatise on the nature of the church and we will find it repeatedly speaking into the life of ABC, sometimes reassuringly and at others with a challenge. I don’t quite know where this will leave us by the end of July, but I know we won’t be the same and I trust that God will be delighted by what he sees.
