Church in Hard Places Workshop - Oldham
@Oldham Bethel Church Waterloo Street Oldham OL4 1EQ
How the Local Church Brings Life to our Poorest Communities
Presented by Acts 29 Church in Hard Places
Many of the UK's poorest communities lack a vibrant, gospel-preaching church. If our poorest communities are going to be reached with the gospel then we need to change how we're doing ministry to the poor. Developing godly leaders, making disciples, planting churches, funding the work - these are just a few of the critical issues we need to address if we want to see our council estates reached with the gospel.
Join us for this timely conversation as we present the challenges, suggest some ways forward, and build momentum towards healthy churches being planted and revitalised on council estates across the UK.
