We are Christ Central

Carrying on the discussion about the future of Newfrontiers, comes my own Church.

We are overseen by Jeremy Simpkins who provides friendship, encouragement and challenge to us as an eldership team.

In the past different people have looked after our Church and in a transient movement like newfrontiers this tended to change as people became involved in new things, both here and abroad.

Now we are in a really fruitful place relationally and receiving lots of gifts from a network of Churches, and hopefully being in some small way a blessing to others.

So when Jeremy was recognised to develop his ministry nothing really changed for us.  "Christ Central" is the name given to this work, part of the newfrontiers global family.

I am looking forward to their website going live at soon, and will try to make a regional celebration meeting in Derby next month

More locally we relate to other churches within our Borderlands region, Shropshire, Staffordhsire and North Wales, through a fortnightly prayer meeting and working together in different ways on the ground, with a camp coming up this summer called the Borderlands Camp.

I don't know how this journey will all end, but back in 2009 Dave Bish had a lot of this nailed in this post, and with that in mind fair play to Terry Virgo, he did what he said he would do.
