INSIDE THIS ISSUE

6-9 In the third part of our 125th anniversary celebrations, we look back 80 years and preview this year’s regional celebrations.

1O-13 For Belmont Church, in Exeter, evangelism is not just about ‘conversion’ but building life-long relationships. Young Families Team Leader, Rachel Morris, tells Ignite how it starts with antenatal classes.

14-17 Making Jesus Known Today and Tomorrow: Spreading the Gospel in
Twenty-first Century Britain. If you haven’t yet asked for your copy, read Counties Evangelist, Matt Rich’s, edited excerpt from the book: Sharing the Good News Online.

18-21 Counties Evangelist, Paul Willmott, works alongside a number of local churches, in the West Midlands, where he creates links with primary schools. Rebecca Russell is a part-time schools’ worker, who frequently works with Paul. She shares what evangelism looks like for her church.

22-23 Counties Evangelist, Mark Bingham, is passionate about other Christians seeing that “Evangelism is a way of life, rather than an activity”.

24-27 ‘Church in the Community Wollaston’, opened in 2021. It tried lots of community engagement opportunities, but it was only when the church slowed down and put the Gospel first, that the church began to grow. Counties Planter, Jordan Armstrong, tells Ignite how it happened.

28-29 Counties Evangelist, Jonathan Brain and his wife Heather continue the story of their new house church.

3O-33 Chris Sinkinson is an author and associate pastor at Lansdowne Church in Bournemouth. He looks at how the local church might tackle the ‘big questions’ as part of its evangelistic strategy.

34 Just a Minute with Counties Evangelist, Tim Ayrton.

Marchwood Infant School

I was greeted with a lovely welcome from the pupils of Marchwood Infant School as I arrived for an afternoon assembly. The Head Teacher said, “The children are so excited to seeing you again!” and they were! Glad to say the were very quiet for the Bible story in which the challenge was to fit in the three core values of the school of hope, courage and love!

Marchwood Infant School was first contacted with the Counties ‘Key to Life’ Expo in 2023 and this has opened up a regular opportunity to take assemblies.

Evangelism @ Speakers Corner.

“Eloquence is logic on fire!” – Lyman Beecher

Speakers Corner in London’s Hyde Park is the oldest free speech platform in the world. People won the right to speak in mass protests in the 1860s and early 1870s. Some people believe the tradition is connected to the right of the condemned to a last speech before being hung at the Tyburn gallows, a practice that stopped at the end of the 18th century. Every Sunday people from all sorts of convictions come to Hyde Park in the afternoon to spead their message or to have fun.
