Matson Centre for Mission opens
03/09/2019, 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
This Sunday 8 September, a new Centre for Mission will be launched in Matson, in a partnership between the Church of England and the Church Army.
Andy Wilson, Lead Evangelist, will be heading up the Matson site and will use a variety of locations including St Katherine’s Church and local schools.
The aim of the Centre of Mission is to reach groups of people who are not normally touched by the church, to give them the chance to encounter God’s love, to establish new Christian communities and to pass this on in a way that makes a real difference in Matson.
Andy will also spend 20% of his time supporting evangelism more widely across the Diocese.
The launch will include words from Bishop Rachel, an interview with Andy, led by Bishop Robert and an introduction to the Centre of Mission from Neville Willerton, the National Operations Manager for the Church Army. There will even be a magician.
There will be an official launch ceremony this Sunday at St Hilda’s Hall, Redwell Road, Matson.
Doors open from 3pm and there is an official welcome from Bishop Rachel at 3.20pm and all are welcome to come along.
