What next, Lord? Ep5 - Gospel & Culture

Posted by Carl Smethurst on November 5th 2015

Series of 5 short videos designed to help churches reflect on where they are at and what God might have for their future. In this episode we consider how our contemporary culture has changed from that in which the church we have inherited was formed. We also think about the various sub-cultures in our society identifying those we are reaching with the gospel and those we presently are not. READ Acts 17:16–23.

What next, Lord? Ep 3 - Mission Context and Mixed Economy

Posted by Carl Smethurst on November 5th 2015

Series of 5 short videos designed to help churches reflect on where they are at and what God might have for their future.

READ Acts 15:1-4 & Galatians 2:7-9.
