A Gathering Momentum

This is the title of the Gather book we are working on rooted with your stories from towns and cities across the UK of working and praying together in unity and mission towards the transformation of the places God has planted you in.

Last month we sent you a set of questions that we would like you to answer about christian unity & mission in your town. A big thank you to those of you who have already sent back your replies, but we still need more. We want to be able to share stories and best practice from Penzance to Newcastle, Dover to Liverpool, London to York. If you are involved in the wonderful work God is doing in your town, city or village then please send us your replies so that we can make this a significant chronicle of all that God is doing in our places.

This book will be given out at Movement Day UK as a resource and so it is vital that we get as much information as possible from you in the next couple of weeks, so please make this a priority if you can.
Here are the questions
Please cut and paste these questions and email your answers to us at lesley@gatherglobal.co.uk
