We had a fab time at the Cottingham Civic service today, as I outlined 4 major developments that will affect you in the coming months.
The audio podcast of the talk is here:https://podcasts.apple.com/gb/podcast/vision-2022/id942413345?i=1000547338612
Here are the main 4 points:
1. NEW OUTREACH INITIATIVES
• It looks as if we are imminently to be given a small community centre in Hull, to develop a busy community outreach centre.
• We hope to have up to 6 Outreach Locations running across the region by Spring 2022, reaching communities, collaborating with local churches, leading people to Jesus.
2. NEW HQ DIRECTION
• As explained in the podcast, due to our changing needs and opportunities, we are now looking at acquiring some land or a holiday/leisure/farm space on the outskirts of Hull as a Headquarters, to develop a “Hollybush style” revival centre full of fun, food, a House of Prayer, space for eventing and lots of community creating play! We are actively viewing properties & land right now, so if you know of any, let us know!
3. NEW PASTORAL HOUSES
• We have recently been working to put all Revive members in geographic based Pastoral Houses which will be announced later this month. This is so we can easily multiply into smaller regional services at times (See point 4) as well as develop more Pastors. You will receive a letter/email outlining your Pastoral House & Pastors soon.
4. NEW SUNDAY SERVICES (Feb-April 2022)
• From February to April 2022, we will be trialling some new Sunday morning service styles, all at 10.30am:
• REVIVE UNITED Twice a month we will gather all Campuses and Locations to a REVIVE UNITED service at Cottingham Civic as normal.
• FAMILY GATHERINGS Twice a month we will gather Pastoral Houses in smaller locations of up to 90 people, in venues across Hull & East Yorkshire, to try more informal, relational styles of services, to get to know each other and our Pastors better. There’ll be kids work, prayer, refreshments, seating around tables, more voices and more faces to get to know! Jump in!
You’ll get further emails and mail about all this as the time gets closer!
Keep digging into Jesus.
