Unity not uniformity: Mapping out a more diverse future for the Evangelical Alliance

Sunday, March 4th, 2012

The Evangelical Alliance has committed to a future which better represents the ethnic diversity of the evangelical community in the UK, following meetings with national church leaders.

Senior staff from the Alliance have been meeting with key leaders in the months following the closure of the African and Caribbean Evangelical Alliance (ACEA) in May 2011 after 25 years of existence.

Faced with this void, General Director Steve Clifford, senior staff and Board members felt the need to address the issue in conversation with senior leaders from the black majority churches and to seek their input in mapping out a strategy for how best to reflect our diverse community.

Following an initial meeting on 6 October with a wide range of leaders, a commission including Bishop Eric Brown (national overseer of the New Testament Church of God), Bishop John Francis (senior pastor of Ruach Ministries), Bishop Wilton Powell (Church of God of Prophecy), Dr Tani Omideyi (Temple of Praise) and Pastor Agu Irukwu (senior pastor of Jesus House) met on 25 November to discuss and bring forward a report and recommendations as to the way forward for the Evangelical Alliance.

Steve Clifford said: “The feedback from these key leaders has been tremendously encouraging with a real sense that this was God’s timing and that we had to meet in order to seek God, hear from each other and find a way forward.

“We have used the opportunity to build relationship as, together, we seek to make an impact on our world and be a part of the prayer Jesus prays in John 17 that ‘we may be one’.

 “This is about unity and not uniformity. This is a unity which recognises we’re family together. We are about a unity which challenges the norms of our society.”

The wider group met again on 28 February to receive the report, which will now go to the Evangelical Alliance Board and Council later this year to agree the recommendations before they are made public.

Speaking at the meeting in October, Pastor Agu said: “I have been excited to witness the Alliance’s journey of bringing unity. All of us have come to the place where we have realised that we cannot do this on our own. I am passionate about unity because I know that if we can harness our potential together, we can achieve so much more.”

Get Set for the Olympics

Sunday, March 4th, 2012

Churches are being encouraged to attend special days to help equip them with innovative ways to make the most of the Olympic and Paralympic Games wherever they are.

More Than Gold, the agency established to help churches make the most of the 2012 Games, is holding 16 ‘Get Set’ days across the country.

Those who attend will leave with “new ideas, strategies, skills and resources” to help them make the most of the Games as a mission opportunity.

They take place on Saturdays from 10.30am to 4.30pm on various dates and in several locations around the country.

Topics covered on the Get Set days include running a community festival, using sport to impact all ages, and becoming a Games Pastor.

Jon Burns, UK director of More Than Gold, said: “Churches should send their key people involved with children, youth, community engagement and outreach.

“They will gain practical insights from past Games and skills to use for years to come.”

The choice of electives covers Reaching Children and Youth, the Torch Relay and your Community, Prayer, Using International Mission Teams, Mission through the Paralympics and Games-related Social Justice.

The Rt Revd Adrian Newman, Bishop of Stepney, said: “More Than Gold have made hundreds of ideas easily accessible in their remarkable Get Set training days. I hope every church will make the most of this great opportunity to be ready for the Games.”

Jon added: “Thousands of churches are already making plans to reach out during the 2012 Games. These Get Set days give them the help needed to be at their very best. Every church, large of small, will benefit.”

The cost of the day is £10 per person, with advance registration encouraged to secure the required choice of workshop.

For more on the dates and locations of the Get Set events, visit the More Than Gold website, where you can register.
