Mission Focus

LCP – Loughborough Churches Partnership. 

On 26 January, Emmanuel church was absolutely humming as many Christians from Loughborough gathered together to celebrate what God is doing in our town.

Here are some highlights:

  • Retiring Baptist Minister, Gert Glasius, reminded us of the early preachers who walked many miles to preach in our area, and spoke of a similar work happening in North India today.
  • At Trinity Methodist Church there is a new interest in prayer and a recent decision to meet weekly to pray
  • At St Mary’s, Nanpantan, ‘Forest Church’ has started in the woodlands which they own – a time when people of all ages can encounter God outdoors
  • STB, St Barnabas Church, our own Church plant, started with 30 people as we know, and has already reached and welcomed new members from the local community
  • Beacon Fellowship have welcomed a new Pastor, David Warren

Everyone was encouraged and challenged by these stories and more. What might God be calling us to do and be at the Good Shepherd?
