EA: Gospel and unity in action

The good news of Jesus Christ is spreading


Gospel and unity in action

Dear Peter

I was incredibly encouraged this week to see that research by our close friends and member organisation Tearfund about more Brits turning to prayer and religious services amid the coronavirus crisis has been featured in The Guardian. You can read the article by clicking here, and for a comment piece by our public policy researcher, click here.

The UK Blessing, which saw more than 65 churches and movements come together online, standing together as one, to sing a blessing over our country, also brought me tremendous joy. This is gospel and unity in action; and on the outside chance you haven’t seen it, I’d urge you to check it out, and if you have, why not watch it again.

The good news of Jesus Christ is spreading, and this is good to see. Churches and Christian charities are increasingly being seen as sources of support and an invaluable contribution – being recognised for their ability and commitment to help those in need, even by people who wouldn’t normally be on our team. This is wonderful.

Let’s continue to be brave and kind in this time, as we make Jesus known. We’ve improved our evangelism hub, Great Commission, to support you in this, and throughout May and June the team will equip and encourage you through live conversations, articles and resources.

So, as well as visiting the hub, do join our Story Bearer sessions, live chats about sharing your faith, on Facebook Live on Wednesdays. Also join us next week Thursday at 10am for the third instalment of the coronavirus conversations, where we’ll hear from award-winning leader Rev Celia Apeagyei-Collins. You can catch up on previous episodes before then.

As we continue to work out how to come out of lockdown, let’s ensure we keep holding up the church in prayer. Visit our online prayer centre for this week’s inspiration.

With every blessing,

Gavin Calver
