What's next?

Thank you 

We want to communicate with you the plan for the next season of Tables so that during the month of February we can prepare, dream and pray together, but before we do that, I want to say, thank-you. 

Thank you for opening up your homes and being willing to lead our community as we gather and practice walking in the way of Jesus. It has been great to hear some of the stories that have emerged from your tables. One of the most encouraging and prominent pieces of feedback that we have received has been the natural building of community. 

Vision 2019: The next 10 

During our Learning day, we acknowledged that we are turning ten years old and David Armstrong shared some exciting potential opportunities while unpacking Redeemer’s vision and direction for the next ten. For those of you who missed out you can watch this video to catch up on this video with David sharing the vision.

The Senior Leaders have recognised that God has been calling us to establish a house of prayer. It is no coincidence that we have increased our 101 prayer and worship night to a regular monthly gathering. If you were able to attend on the 30th January, the Spirit of God was moving in the room resulting in prophetic words being spoken that encouraged and edified our community.

What does this mean for Table leaders? 

The goal is to launch a dedicated prayer room in the run-up to Easter. With this in mind, we wanted to take the opportunity to gather around tables and explore prayer with our community. The book that we have chosen for our collective reading is ‘Dirty Glory’ by Pete Greig, the founder of the 24-7 prayer movement. It is our hope and prayer that this account of the first 5 years of establishing the 24-7 prayer movement would excite, build faith and increase expectancy as we too launch our prayer room in Donegall Street.

You may already have this book on your self, but if you don’t you can always grab a copy here:

Looking ahead to Tables recommencing in March we would ask you that you get to grips with the book, ingest it, let it influence and shape your prayers for the next season of tables there are even some helpful questions at the back of the book to help initiate discussion.

101 Prayer & Worship Nights

I want to highlight the 101 prayer and worship nights. These are important nights for the life of our church and we would ask that you add them to your monthly rhythm. Your regular table gathering should meet the week before and after the dates (below) - for those who meet on nights other than Wednesdays, please adjust according.

We have already seen the beauty that comes when we corporately pray, worship and wait on God. Please promote the 101 prayer and worship nights in your communications to your Table.

Prayer nights will be held on the 3rd Wednesday night of the month. The dates are as follows: -

  • 20th February

  • 20th March

  • 17th April

  • 15th May

  • 19th June


We are excited to see God speak, stir hearts and release dreams in, and for our community, as we collectively seek His face

Looking forward with much anticipation,

Matt

Vision 2019 (Video)

At our recent Learning Day on Saturday 2nd February we shared this vision. For those Wider Leaders who couldn’t make it we wanted to bring you up to speed so we created this video. We trust it will help bring you on board into all we are sensing God has for us this year as a community.

A Year of Focus

The Senior Leaders and I have been giving thought to our priorities this year in Redeemer. As we have done this we’ve realised that there is just so much we could give ourselves to and there is simply not the time or resources to do it all. This reminded me of something I’ve been learning over the past few years.

Wider Leaders Rhythms 2018-19

Over summer myself and the other Senior Leaders have been giving thought to how we might better invest in you all — our wider leaders — and improve the flow of communication and the exchange of stories, resources and ideas so that we might learn and grow together. There are 3 ways we are going to do this in the upcoming year.

Goodbye CityGroups. Hello Tables

As you know Tables are launching this month and I wanted to give you all a brief overview of what they are and provide some context for why we’re moving from CityGroups to Tables. Even if you are not a Table Leader I’d recommend you read on.
