Why write a blog

Something about our global experience during 2020 and 2021 has caused us to ask what really matters and, as part of that question, what is the church, what is faith in God all about - why even plant churches?  

In Matthew 28 Jesus calls us to plant churches by making disciples of every nation. There are many different styles and ways of 'doing' church, but ultimately if we're not making disciples, then we're just doing our own thing. Before we worry about what our Sunday 'meetings' look and sound like, we're focusing on what it takes to make multiplying disciples.

All across the world millions of people are becoming disciples of Jesus as a follower of Jesus shares with them the good news of the gospel who in turn shares with another and so on. Our hope with this blog is to write about our journey of making multiplying disciples, including some 'how to's' and reflections on what we're doing here in Bradford and what we're seeing in the nations.

We love the church and are privileged to be part of a family of churches that plant and grow healthy, multiplying churches full of people who follow Jesus. Will you join us on this adventure?

Prayer walking

Prayer walking

Prayer walking is not a new thing. Since moving to Bradford, we have met christians who have been walking and praying along the streets of our city for over thirty years.

Now is the time

Now is the time

I had my eldest daughter in a pushchair, my youngest wrapped in a sling on my chest and I was walking up a cobbled path towards Bradford city centre. Under an archway sat a lady with an accordion, serenading...
