We think that Jesus is brilliant – and we want to spread the good news about him to as many people as we can.

A big part of this is each of us sharing with our friends, neighbours and others in our lives. Another part of it is starting new sites and churches in different parts of Manchester and around the world.

Recently we have sensed God leading us to start six new sites.

In practice, what this means is that we want to get loads of prayer meetings going for different areas and people groups, and then see what God does with them. Some will grow into sites. Others might remain as community groups or prayer gatherings – and that’s absolutely okay! Just as in 1 Samuel 14, Jonathan turned to his armour bearer and said (paraphrasing), ‘let’s have a go and see what God does with it’, so we say the same with these prayer groups.

Would you join us to pray?
