AOG UK Churches Looking Forward

Added 20 March 2013 View full list    Print version    
The Assemblies of God (AOG) network of churches in the UK has a fine heritage of growth and community engagement.

However, the current leadership of the network, under Pastor John Partington, recognise the need for a vibrant new engagement with rapidly changing community needs and likely future challenges.

The network invited social futurist Mal Fletcher, director of Next Wave International and chairman of 2020Plus, to speak to its Central Region Leadership Conference recently.

Mal addressed the subject of 'The Social Tsunami: How Churches can Engage the Emerging Wave of Social Change.'

The response to the lectures has been outstanding, particularly via social networking streams.

Mal reported that delegates were engaged in a 'lean forward' way throughout - and the Q & A time at the end revealed a willingness to tackle difficult issues.

Man this site rocks! I get fired up on this site every week and challenged by the daily recharges, but the best thing is to see how you guys are finding ways to communicate Jesus to today's people in a way they can get it. I've got plenty of ideas from you for my service here in Japan. Keep it up!

I was reading 'Not My Fault'. As a pastor I read your articles with great interest -- very insightful. Thanks for your prophetic voice to this Post Modern Generation.

Just wanted to let you know that what you are doing is affecting and impacting lives beyond what you see. It is helping to keep us sharp as a church.
