Moving On: JSP’s 1st National Conference at The Briery in Ilkley

We didn’t sing On Ilkla Moor Baht 'at (even though for some it was their first visit to Ilkley) and there wasn’t much time for wandering about on the Moor. But we had a very special time together that added much to JSP foundations for ensuring healthy future growth.

JSP's Future Development

JSP is developing in a way that encourages churches to support one another in their adoption of JSP. Such a process requires that our ‘Central Core Team’ is small and flexible as it responds to fresh opportunities and challenges.

New Resource: Team Building

JSP identifies ‘Five Priorities’ that sum up the ministry of Jesus, and these are explored by churches that adopt JSP. Afterwards many churches find the need to focus more intentionally on one of these, so resources to enable this are steadily growing.
