Evangelism and Church Growth

 

NEW Guildford Diocesan Evangelists’ Network: a gathering place for those with a passion for sharing their Christian faith.

What? 

An occasional gathering for those in the Diocese of Guildford with a passion for sharing the Christian Faith organised by the Diocesan Parish Development and Evangelism Team.

Why?

We want to encourage those engaged in all kinds of evangelistic ministries by offering them:

  • Fellowship and support
  • Training and Equipping

Who?

Anyone who their local church recognises has some form of evangelistic ministry or gifting, with their church leader’s support, is welcome to attend – lay and ordained.

When?

The network meets three or four times per year at 8pm on midweek evenings.  Dates, times  and venues will be circulated to members. We will usually meet in a pub function room somewhere near Guildford.

Confidence in Talking about Faith

was identified as a key issue holding back church growth by those who responded to the Bishop’s Common Purpose survey.  Help is at hand.

“Be Prepared to Give an Answer” is a 1 ½ to 2 hour session aimed at all Christians who want to become more confident in talking about their faith and sharing it with others. Led by Alan Hulme, Director of the Diocesan Parish Development and Evangelism Team and others.

You find a venue and at least 50 people (there is no upper numbers limit) and we will come and deliver it.

We don’t have to give people new skills (they know how to chat with friends), we don’t have to give people new information (they already know their own faith journeys). This seminar aims simply to add some confidence and motivation.

Booking: contact pdet.admin@cofeguildford.org.uk  or phone 01483 484902 to discuss.

More details

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your minds, so that you may discern what is the will of God—what is good and acceptable and perfect.
