Latest news, stories and resources

Be an angel

Recently my oldest friend gave a talk where she pointed out that the word ‘evangelism’ has the word ‘angel’ in the middle of it. I’d honestly never noticed that. It’s not accidental, because the verb to evangelise means to do what angels do. We say, ‘be an angel and...

A small opportunity…

How big or ‘impressive’ do our mission initiatives need to be before we share them with others? I’m part of a small missional group in the outskirts of Stroud, Gloucestershire. Our aim is to connect with God and with our fellow (local) Christians so that we are...

Discover – Nurture – Action

As a catalyst for mission, Seventy-two is about helping ordinary Christians find their next step in the Mission of God. This often means signposting people to resources, as we have been doing at our two Spring Harvest stands this Easter. There’s one resource we’d...

I listened to a raisin

My recent initiation into the global community of those living with ME/CFS has inspired me to see God and those he loves (all humanity) in a fresh new way. I’ve often struggled to empathise (or indeed sympathise!) with people who have hidden illnesses. If it wasn’t...
