Does it sound too good to be true? Well it isn’t. Welcome to God for All.
Over the last few years, churches across Cumbria have been talking, praying and planning together.
The result is God for All. By 2020 every person in Cumbria of all ages and backgrounds will have had an opportunity to discover more of God and God’s purpose for their lives, so that they will discover more of Jesus and the Good News and become followers of Jesus within a Christian community.
It brings together the different facets of the commitment of different denominations to make and grow disciples of Jesus Christ.
There’s so much fantastic activity taken place across the county in the last week in answer to the call for a great wave of prayer.
Christians of all denominations have come together in response to encouragement of the Archbishops of Canterbury and York to pray for the evangelisation of the nation.
Here in Cumbria we asked people to prayerfully reflect and focus upon the God for All vision, that as many people in this county discover more of God and God’s purpose for their lives, so they will discover more of Jesus and the Good News and become followers of Jesus within a Christian community.
From prayer vigils to pilgrimages, from 24 hour prayer relays to travelling prayer, people have embraced the call to prayer. Thank you.
We’d love to hear the outcome of those prayers so do please get in touch via the God for All contacts page.
This is what we’re doing
We’re committed to this work. We’re passionate about reaching out to everyone; to offer them the chance to explore more about God. And structures are in place to enable this to happen.
A new group – the Strategy Steering Group – has been set up to ensure that churches and Christians across Cumbria have all the information and resources needed to make this work.
Listening and enabling. Discovering and supporting. Encouraging and growing. Praying and providing. From exploring new ways to reach out to communities through to creating new mission communities – networks of support, encouragement and growth – this is what God for All is about – and much more.
