Term 2 – E for Evangelism

Ministers' letters

Term 2’s focus at St Michael’s is E for Evangelism. This week someone asked me how it was going. As it happened, he asked me at the WCCEB Coffee and Dessert Night, and it was so encouraging to hear that in 2017, our local high school Scripture board has been able to place a new…

The Social Church: Using Facebook to share the Gospel

Ministers' letters, Missions, View from the pew

  I’m going to start with a couple of controversial statements:  It’s easier than ever to share the gospel. You can be a missionary in one of the world’s largest “countries”, today!
