Gathering with Christians!

God's People gathered this week! … at least some of us did - for the Christian Resources Exhibition.


I did know what to expect from this, but it was a wonderful way to find out the amazing ways God is moving in the UK - even if it was not very local to my home town of Barnstaple! 


It certainly is quite a way from North Devon, so I set off at 4.30am on Tuesday 11th October, to stay away for two nights.  It really was worth it though, to see the range of innovative exhibitors, enjoy the varied talks and be part of it with the Brendan and and Julie  - Jesus Shaped People. Plus we got to see the funny Tim Vine opening the exhibition and cracking jokes! 


It was great to see so many amazing resources from Agape 'Living and Telling', to Holy Socks - and to meet a range of indiviiduals  with a heart for Jesus.  Admittedly, many of the people we spoke to were from London, the Home Counties and South Coast, but were united with a focus on three things:  Discipleship, Intergenerational Ministry and Outreach.  These are at the heart of Jesus Shaped People.


Above all it was so encouraging to see so many Christians working together and wanting to develop their faith and ministry. We are definitely excited to see how God will use the links we made at CRE.
