We believe this is a specific call God has given us, and the last few years have been spent pursuing this goal
To that end we have cast a vision ,adopted values ,and priorities that we think reflect those found in the Bible and that are about building The Kingdom
We have been determined not to be a cosy club where we huddle together against the storms of secularism and materialism and atheism but a community that shares the message of life,that serves people ,that is organised around mission
Over the last few years we have been to see various other ministries and churches as we have thought through our vision and tested it thoroughly. We have learnt a lot this way
In the busyness of the past few years perhaps I have not stopped often enough to reflect but in preparation for today I did just that. The result is that I am amazed and deeply thankful at what God did and is doing.
The timing of everything ,the wonderful provision is nothing short of a miracle, and hopefully I will get round to writing the full story of the past few years, in a series of blog posts in the future.
Anyway we showed our guests round the building today and I also returned there later following a meeting with the developers, so here as promised are some pictures!
