Brighton Mission Weekend
Brighton is a city of 273,000 people, perhaps the most bohemian city in the country,
known for its art, music, students and general libertarianism. It was the first city
to elect a Green Party MP, while it is home to many who work in the media and commute
Of concern to Grace Baptist churches is the closure in 2013 of Montpellier Place Baptist Church on the western of the city centre. Once a large and thriving church, many factors contributed to its closure, and the trustees are currently deciding what should be done with the large 1960s building. On the other side of town is Ebenezer Reformed Baptist Church, which rejoices in a new and cleverly designed building in a housing development just above Grand Parade in Brighton’s Kemptown. Yet this church is also small and in need of encouragement. Discussions are ongoing as to how to help strengthen the work at Ebenezer, and to look at where churches need to be planted in other parts of the city, and we would value your prayers for this. Conversations with other churches have only highlighted the spiritual needs of Central Brighton.
So, as a first step, we are organising this year’s Brighton mission weekend, running from Friday 10th to Sunday 12th July. Our aim is to provide training in evangelism in the context of a secular city. Come and learn how to explain the gospel to someone who has never connected with it before. The programme for the weekend includes a café outreach, local evangelism and a Saturday night acoustic music evening. Will you consider joining the team? For more details and an application form, contact us via our contact form.
This Mission Weekend has had to be cancelled due to lack of volunteers.
We hope to run it next year and will post further details as we have them.
