Praise God for many volunteers and pray that many members will come.

Newtown Club to Open Next Month


Coordinators Lindsay Ferguson (left), Lisa Gomes (middle) and Joanne Lewis (right).

In exactly one month on Friday 19th February, St Stephens Newtown will open up a Jesus Club for people in the city region. As each Jesus Club has their own unique style and flavour, the Newtown group will be called "WeBelong" (rather than "Jesus Club") to fit in with the New Age, Bohemian culture of Newtown. The Newtown club will also be special because its team of Leaders will come from St Stephens Newtown and also Moore College. A few years ago, someone had the brilliant idea of setting up a Jesus Club that Moore College students could attend. The idea was to give Moore College students exposure to this type of ministry before they headed off to full-time ministry positions.

Article: "Why *Strategic Ministry* Makes Me Deeply Uncomfortable"


"Sam comes from Sevenoaks in Kent, but studied theology at Wycliffe Hall in Oxford, and has since worked at St Ebbe's Church, Oxford, and now serves at a church in Maidenhead. He has written several books, including James For You, Is God Anti-Gay, and Lifted. Hobbies include reading, watching The West Wing and anything to do with South-East Asia."

I was so happy to read this article by Sam Allberry, an evangelist to Oxford University students. He asserts that Oxford students are in need of Jesus, just as we all are.  The heart of being a Christian is knowing that you are a sinful, broken person with nothing to offer God but only the willingness to receive His free gift of friendship.
