What do you talk about with your non-Christian friends?
The weather? The latest box sets on Netflix? Has the size of a Cadbury’s cream egg really got smaller? For most of us perhaps, it’s not too difficult to find something trivial to talk about; maybe even with people we don’t know so well.
But what about the subject of faith? Is it easy to share the good news with our friends, family, neighbours and colleagues? How about people in our wider community and those on the fringes of our churches?
The folk at our Strategic Partner 'The Ugly Duckling Company' has been wondering the same thing as Director Sharon Lanfear explains.
Rural Ministries is delighted to be partnering with the Anglican diocese of St. Edmundsbury and Ipswich in 2018 to deliver a new missional initiative. We invited Bishop Mike Harrison, Bishop of Dunwich which includes the diocese of St. Edmunsbury and Ipswich to explain more about the missional process and our partnership.
Where do good missional ideas come from? From listening to the needs of your community of course. What do your members hear in the shop, the school playground, the pub? Andy Lund of Durrington Community Church explains how one initiative came to fruition.
