Putting Luke:10 into Practice
Crossgates Community is a small faith community in East Leeds closely linked with Revive Baptist Church and Connecting Crossgates (a local Christian charity) . In the last three years we have grown from 4 to around 25 including new Christians and those exploring faith.
We saw the Biglife model in practice in India and began using it ourselves during lockdown. This simple framework has seen phenomenal growth across the world, where seekers are helped to become believers, then disciples and ultimately disciple makers starting further groups themselves.
Rather than inviting those who are interested in faith to an existing church community, from the outset, new groups are formed around a “person of peace”. We use the BigLife “Three Thirds” tool which helps individuals to apply God’s word in their own life and share their faith naturally with others.
We are seeing participants energised in faith and enthusiastic about sharing it more frequently with others.
Please pray for a number of potential new groups which have been identified.
