With the closure of our offices in Hove and London it was important to ensure that the archives of Newfrontiers did not become irretrievably dispersed.
I am so delighted that Newfrontiers is involved in church planting in continental Europe, what many call ‘the forgotten mission field’.
Wendy and I so enjoyed the privilege of gathering with hundreds of enthusiastic believers, for a conference in the ancient and beautiful city of Brasov in the mountainous north of Romania.
I love the way that Grace City Church prays not only for its own fruitfulness and for God’s favour on Sydney. But also completely owns the vision for church planting across Australia, New Zealand, Cambodia, the Philippines and Japan; what we call in Newfrontiers, the Pacific Rim churches.
I was so shocked at the recent passing of Arnold Bell, a longstanding friend whom I first met at London Bible College in 1965.
15th October 2012 will prove to be a significant date in the evolution of Newfrontiers. It marked the beginning of our first international gathering following the closure of Together On a Mission in Brighton, which had previously been our annual international conference.
I am happy to be able to report that transition in Newfrontiers appears to be progressing very sweetly!
Last Sunday proved to be a very exciting day for me. I was invited to speak at the opening of a huge warehouse, which now is the meeting place for The King’s Church, in Mid-Sussex.
Earlier this year, I received this encouraging email from Craig Mackay from Reading Family Church. His story is so full of pain but so full of faith in the sovereign hand of God.
