Want to motivate your whole church for mission and service? Jesus Shaped People is a comprehensive and all-embracing programme, with resources for adults, children and young people. It can benefit a wide spectrum of churches from different traditions and contexts, especially smaller urban, inner city, social housing estate churches, churches with few or no children or young people, or churches without a Vicar or Minister. For an in-depth introduction, you can download the JSP summary leaflet.
JSP will lead a conversation for HeartEdge exploring the reality, challenge and opportunity for discipleship across church and community. With an explanation of Jesus Shaped People approaches, space for discussion and debate and a focus on young people. Join a panel with stories to share - and bring your own ready to share. Please join us. Just click on 'Read more' for the link to register.
The new Stay Alert to the Spirit course is now available. Why not take a few minutes and have a look at the video to see what the new intergenerational materials look like.
Despite our technology, wealth, and 21st Century ‘know how’ we’ve been humbled by a virus, like an elite Premier League Football Club knocked out of the FA Cup by a team no one has heard of. How did this happen, how can we get rid of it, when will it end, how is it going to affect my future are legitimate questions. At Jesus Shaped People we felt there is another important question: What is God saying to the churches?
This year 'Thy Kingdom Come' is highly appropriate as Christians give special time to pray in the current Pandemic. JSP has recently become aware of a series of very 'Jesus Shaped' Ignatian style meditations entitled 'TakeTime'. We warmly recommend personal use of these during the ten days from Ascension Day to Pentecost. You can find them at https://mailchi.mp/19408e1baa25/taketimetaketimeorguk-3483854
