Movement Day Doncaster 20th June 2018
Why do we_exist?
Building upon the growing move of missional unity developing in cities and towns across the nation, we exist to develop a strategic conversation using the Movement Day model across those places in order to see more social, cultural and spiritual transformation.
We are seeing a new move of UNITY taking hold across our nation and the world. Leaders from all denominations and cultural backgrounds are coming together in friendship and prayer to seek the welfare of their cities - and TRANSFORMATION is occurring! This revolution of kindness and compassion includes not just church leaders but people working in the SPHERES of life, in business, arts, health, politics, local government, media, education and more. God is drawing his people together STRATEGICALLY to impact their communities.
exists to help individual cities and towns join these different groupings together in CONVERSATION to answer the question “What could your place look like in 15 years time?”. As we seek God’s kingdom for each town and city in the UK and work together in unity and humility, we know we will see our nation transformed. It’s already happening!
How are we doing_this?
We are supporting cities and towns in hosting a long term Movement Day process that involves two distinct expressions in a Movement Day Gathering and a Movement Day Conversation.
The aim is for a city/town to host a yearly Movement Day gathering over the next few years. The event then becomes a place for the whole body of Christ to meet, to press forward a vision for the city, to gather more in unity, effect deeper partnerships, and empower more church members. The event is the catalyst for inspiration, conversation, goal setting, and partnership.
However the Movement Day conversation is about the 365 days before the event and the 365 days after the event where the real work is done. This will begin a series of conversations and working groups to cover some key strategic actions.
What do we want to see_happen?
If we are to see significant change over the next 15 years in our places we will need to see a 10 point plan implemented as soon as possible:
Our big dream is to see significant social, cultural and spiritual transformation across many cities, towns, boroughs and islands across the UK by the whole body of Christ blessing the city by forming strong friendships, praying together over the long term and working together in a co-ordinated and strategic mission.
What could be achieved over the next few years?
