Do you have a passion to see those around you come to know Jesus? If so I want to tell you about an exciting new initiative launching in 2020 called, Advance.
Advance groups will take place across the diocese (once a month over a one-year period). The aim of the group is to identify and equip those with a passion for evangelism. It will be a year of growth, encouragement and building friendships with like-minded people so we can be more effective in reaching people with the good news of Jesus.
The group will consist of 5-12 people, who will meet once a month over a one-year period. It will be a year of growth, encouragement and building friendships with like-minded people.
