Passionate about God’s Church?

    Engaging younger generations
    1 September 2015

    The Church, more than any other social network, employment facility or club, should be leading the way in helping 20-30s find their feet and their faith.

    With the new

    mission shaped ministry

    course starting in the autumn and two vision days already hosted, the planning group is interested in engaging with Christians aged 20-40 who are passionate about Church, mission and discipleship.

    On Saturday 26 September a special evening will be hosted by the Diocese of Bristol and Bristol Methodist Circuit to encourage connections and conversations amongst a key group of people that the wider church all too often struggles to attract and nurture in their congregations.

    Planning group member Revd Andy Mason explains, "The truth is, it's not just teenagers who are sadly missing from so many of our churches. Those in their 20s and 30s are often missing too. As Church we need to ask the question, where are they?

    "The plan for the evening is simple: over drinks and snacks instead of listening to one speaker, we will


    be the speakers with an opportunity to contribute, wrestling over the key issues of the future of the Church in this nation and what God is calling us, our generation, to do about it."

    So if you are aged 20-40, interested in discussing mission and discipleship with others, and passionate about shaping Church for this and future generations, we would love to see you at Hillside House in Stoke Gifford at 8pm on Saturday 26 September and become a part of the conversation.
