Sunday Focus (After Worship)

Sundays Afternoons After Worship - Beginning 22 January 2017

Sunday Focus will take place on Sunday afternoons after worship. A light lunch after worship will be served, then training
activities for adults will be offered along with an expanded Children’s ministry. Sunday Focus will normally end around 3.00 pm.

For this season we will have a light lunch after worship, followed by an expanded Kid’s Connect programme and a Sunday Focus session for everyone else. (Youth Connect will meet at 10.00 am on Sunday mornings.) In this next season of Sunday Focus we will focus on training and releasing people to minister in three important areas: healing, prophecy, and deliverance ministry. Being equipped in these ministries will become even more important when God pours out His Holy Spirit in revival. We would encourage you to make this next season of Sunday Focus a priority. All are welcome here.

Kids Connect at 1.30pm - 3.00pm @ Gallery Room at City Temple

Kid’s Connect is for children from age three and up who desire to meet together to worship, read the Bible, pray for each other and pray for their friends who do not yet know Jesus. Adults who would also like to participate with our kids during this term are invited to speak with Karen. Your interaction with our kids is very important. We believe that our children grow in worship, learning and Christ-likeness through being with Christians who love Jesus. Please consider joining us for this very important ministry.

JustOne with J.John at Emirates Stadium
Saturday, 8 July 2017

JustOne is an event hosted by J.John and 225 churches and ministries across London and beyond to share the Good News of Jesus. You are encouraged to bring a friend who might be open to the good news of Jesus. Tickets (from £5 ) can be obtained at https://justone.co.uk.

We are now looking for three thousand volunteers to serve on the Response Team. This team will require volunteers to speak and pray with those who make a decision to commit or recommit their lives to Jesus. We have much expectation that many will respond to the Good News of Jesus and we want to be ready to support and help them in making significant steps on their journey of faith. The Response Team are a vital and significant part of the day.

Team members will need to:
Be committed Christians and members of a church.
Be reliable and trustworthy.
Attend one training event in June (Irrespective of their experience) – there will be 12 training events throughout London and each team member must attend in order to be trained and authorised to minister on the day.

On the day the team will:
Meet and then pray a simple prayer with those who make a response to J.John’s message.
Take some details from those who make a response.
Give them a pack of resources.
Be a vital link with those who respond on the day and then follow up afterwards.
Complimentary tickets for the team have already been allocated in the Emirates Stadium seating blocks and will be distributed at the training events.

You can be part of The Response Team if you have approval of your church leader and attend one of the training's in the next 2 weeks.

City Of London Pastors

CT in partnership with other churches in the square mile will soon be launching a Street Pastor scheme now called City of London Pastors and you are invited to be part of it.

The Training for City Pastors will take place in CT on Saturday, 1 July. You will need to attend this training before you are allowed to go for any patrols. Refreshments and lunch will be provided. Please email mark.a@city-temple.com if you are interested to volunteer as a City Pastor.

The Launch of City Of London Pastors will take place on Friday, 14 July at CT. After a short service, the City Pastors will go out for their first patrol. All are welcome and we encourage all volunteers to attend this service.

A City of London Pastor is someone who is:
· a Christian and a member of a City church;
· concerned for society and our local community;
· willing to engage with people, whatever their perspective on life and wherever they hang out;
· happy to work in a team and in collaboration with other agencies and projects, both statutory and voluntary
· keen to share the gospel with others when the opportunity arises.
The Street Pastoral Initiative
The Street Pastoral initiative is now well established with in excess of 400 Street Pastoral schemes operating across the UK. Many are part of the Street Pastor scheme and others are stand-alone projects with the same aims.
Prayer Supporters
We want the City Pastors to be surrounded by prayer so there will be prayer supporters with the important role of praying for the work of the pastors.
The nature of the City
The churches within the City of London acknowledge that the nature of their congregations presents unique challenges, with most church members living outside of the City. Nevertheless the increasing night-time economy of the City is ideal for such a scheme and these difficulties are not insurmountable.
City of London Pastors Project
Here in the City we are launching a stand-alone project designed to suit the unique nature of the Square Mile. The main churches supporting the project are St Helens and City Temple
How can I be involved?
If you are a Christian, are over 18 and can commit to one evening a month you can become a City Pastor, or you could be a prayer supporter or a financial supporter.
