Sandy Millar to help launch East Norfolk mission project
Sandy Millar, formerly of Holy Trinity Brompton, will introduce an evening this month in Great Yarmouth which will see the launch of a local mission initiative for churches from across the East coast of Norfolk and Waveney.
The Who Cares? East Coast Vision night will take place on Tuesday March 17 at The Kings Centre on Queen Anne’s Road in Great Yarmouth and will begin at 7.30pm (refreshments available from 7.00pm). Church members from across the area are being invited to come along and hear more about the initiative and how their church can get involved.
Who Cares? provides a way for lots of churches to come together and share the gospel of Jesus Christ with thousands of people, beginning by asking the question “what hurts the most?” The Who Cares? initiative began in Norfolk in 2011 and since then has been run by churches across the UK.
Rev’d Peter Timothy, pastor of Park Baptist Church in Great Yarmouth and one of the core planning team for Who Cares? East Coast said, “Participating in Who Cares in 2014 not only helped our church to engage with its local community; the results informed and helped shape our approach to mission. Its fruits are still evident today!”
At the vision night Rob Tervet who leads Who Cares? will explain the vision behind the initiative and how it provides a framework for mission in a local area. There will also be details of the plan for implementing Who Cares? on the East coast of Norfolk and in Waveney, as well as an opportunity to pray together for the local area.
Revd Matthew Price, Vicar of St Mary Magdalene, Gorleston and another member of the East Coast core planning team, explained, “at a launch for church leaders in the autumn we welcomed leaders from 15 churches from Great Yarmouth, Gorleston, Beccles and Lowestoft and the surrounding villages.
“We are excited about the momentum that is building for this initiative and we are now inviting as many members as possible from churches across the area to gather together, to hear more about the Who Cares? initiative and to pray for our area. We are delighted that Sandy Millar, pictured, has agreed to join us and introduce the evening.”
Alongside, Peter and Matthew, the other members of the core planning team are: Adam Bradley, pastor of Kingsgate Community Church in Great Yarmouth and Ben Parish, pastor of Lowestoft Community Church.
