2018 Church theme

To develop ABC’s culture of faithful response to Jesus by:

  • encouraging all members that their personal contributions have more effect than our programmes.
  • shaping all we do to see more people speaking the gospel to those who don’t know Jesus.

Specific goals

Welcome

  • To have a process of events for people to find out about the gospel of Jesus (‘Serious Eating’ meal with short talk - a service with clear gospel explanation - a gospel course for enquirers). We aim to do this twice over the year.
  • To complete training in a tool for personal evangelism.
  • To create a useful way of following up new contacts, visitors, etc.

Grow

  • To run The Vine Project.
  • To have informal church lunches twice a term.
  • To give more input and support to those leading our Open Bible Groups.

Serve

  • To run a series of practical workshops on church serving, probably June-July.
  • To run Six Steps to Encouragement, initially through our small groups.
