Exploring multi-site church 2

'One Church, One Vision, Two Sites...'

This season 

As a team for the next season we want to recognise this as a blessing and look to God for us to grow as one Church, with one vision, meeting across two sites. Both sites are under the authority of the same eldership team. You will find the same preaching, same doctrine, same leadership philosophy, same values, same emphasis in worship and same family news. On Sundays one site will be at Maynard’s School meeting at 10.00am while the other will meet at St Sidwell’s School at 6.30pm.

One Church 

We recognise we have a challenge to cultivate ‘oneness’ across both sites. Our Church will continue to have one ID Course, an integrated homegroup system, a church weekend away, monthly ‘Church together’ evenings, and other special times where we all join together to praise God!

One Family 

Our morning meeting will continue to run kids work, youth work, crèche, sound, PA and have a full band. We will therefore encourage members who attend the evening meeting to join volunteer teams, and meet with leaders to help with the morning meeting.

One Mission 

We believe that God is calling us to prioritise and seek to bless those who do yet know Jesus. We are ‘sent people’. Although moving to two sites will mean change and challenge, to follow Jesus we want to put the needs of others ahead of ourselves. It is therefore with real joy and expectation that we look to explore our second site, ‘Frontiers Church Central’. We will enjoy the adventure this term and review in the New Year.
