Church to Church: Great Britain
Great Britain (England, Scotland and Wales) has a long, rich Christian heritage and the church has been an important part of the fabric of society. The church has always been at the heart of social change: it established schools for all children, not just the rich; it founded many hospitals and universities; it has always spearheaded social justice issues like child poverty, homelessness and discrimination. !
The established churches (Anglican, Methodist, United Reform etc) have to a large degree pursued these social agendas at the expense of the spiritual care and nurturing of disciples. This focus on a social gospel has coincided with a rapid decline in membership of these churches. Newer churches (Vineyard, independent Baptist etc) have focused very much on the spiritual development and are the churches that are growing at the greatest rate.
There are many indicators in British society that there is a spiritual hunger amongst many people who are not associated with any church. Could you partner with a church in Great Britain to help them reach these people who have a spiritual hunger and empower them to share the gospel so that the streams of living water will flow again in the towns and cities of Britain?
