This summer as a church plant we are going to an event called Westpoint.
Westpoint is an event where people from churches across the UK and further afield can gather to LEARN from God’s word, LOVE one another and God, then GO to see the good news about Jesus reach those around them and across the world. It takes place from Thursday 22nd August until Monday 26th August at the Westpoint Arena near Exeter in Devon and this year will look to gather 3,500 to 4,000 people. The event is being hosted by Guy Miller and his team – Guy leads Citygate Church in Bournemouth and is one of the 5 UK based apostles serving newfrontiers churches across the UK as a whole. Guy’s sphere is called Commission. As an embryonic church plant, we are looking to Guy and his team for connection and relationship.
As a church plant we are offering up to 10 free spaces at Westpoint to students who are graduating this (or even next) summer or people in their 20s who may be thinking about moving over the course of the coming year or so and who may also be feeling a tug towards getting involved in a church plant. The idea is simply to provide an opportunity for them to come to Westpoint with us, get a feel for what it might be like to be involved in our church plant and hopefully come away with a greater degree of clarity around whether church planting with us in particular or even simply church planting in general is what God is calling them to at this point in their lives. We would also feed anyone who comes to Westpoint with us who volunteers to serve at the event.
Maybe you are graduating this summer and are looking for work in or near London. Or maybe you or someone you know might just be interested in finding out more about getting involved in a church plant.
If so, we’d love to hear from you. To find out more, why not get in touch with us via the ‘Contact us’ page on this blog.
