Description

Tim Lovejoy explains the inspiration behind the day...

This is a mini conference for the modern heroes of church life – the organisers, regular members and leaders of tiny village churches, small urban housing estate fellowships and little gatherings of Christians who are faithfully meeting in Jesus’ name all across the east region.

I know, from well over twenty years of working for and leading a small church of less than twenty regulars, that this takes hard work, is often a struggle and can leave us wondering if it is all worthwhile. HOWEVER, I have experienced a real church family, the joy of working together, how God’s hand can clearly be seen at work in the lives of hundreds of people through our mission work. AND, I have discovered some other precious things that I would not have found, had I not been part of a small church.

So why are we organising this get together?

1. To affirm and celebrate the value of small churches

2. Through sharing stories, to support, encourage and inspire one another

3. To receive helpful input for ourselves and to hear some new ideas and perspectives

What is a small church?a third of the Baptist Churches in the Eastern Baptist Association have 30 members or less and this event is especially for them, but if church feels ‘small’ feel welcome.
