Same time next week
I am part of a Church planters network which has the simple aim of encouraging each other and praying and planning how we can see more churches planted in the C of E. One of our number, Rev Cris Rogers, planted into All Hallow's Bow (fantastic film on their website) and had less than 5 people turning up when he arrived. It is located in one of the poorest parts of the East End and he and his amazing wife Becky have spent the last couple of years growing a congregation and reaching out to their community and now remarkably they have over 120 people attending on a Sunday morning.
Do please watch 'Bless'. One story Chris tells is so very deeply moving and hope generating that you will be telling others about it all week.
As a shout out, Chris has launched 'The Rebel's guide to the good news' which is some great material for groups and we are going to be using it next term with our youth and I think in the wider church.
