Wed 22 Nov - Breakfast event with Marvin Rees: 'The Churches Fund' launchmarvin breakie



When: Wednesday 22nd November 2017, between 7.30 and 9.00am
Where: Zion United church, Woodend road, Frampton Cotterell, BS36 2HY


Breakfast event with Marvin Rees, for church leaders across South Gloucestershire and north Bristol, including 'The Churches Fund' launch

There is a growing sense of God at work across the region, with unparalleled opportunities for the church community to bring God’s heart of love to a hurting world. One example of this is the election of Marvin Rees as Mayor of Bristol in May 2016. As a committed Christian Marvin has invited the church to play a key role in contributing to the life of the city. Whilst Marvin has a specific role focused on Bristol City Council, he has a vision for the wider region and is keen to meet with church leaders to share what’s on his heart. In early July he met with over 100 leaders at St Stephen’s Church in the city centre, but he’s keen to broaden the reach and to meet with leaders beyond the city itself. To that end you’re invited to join him for a prayer breakfast at Zion United church, Woodend road, Frampton Cotterell, BS36 2HY between 7.30 and 9.00am on Wednesday 22nd November.

There will be an opportunity to listen to Marvin, to ask questions and also to pray. This will provide the context for you as a church leader, and in due course your congregations, to find out how you can most effectively get involved and share the journey with Christians across the region. One exciting new development that Marvin will be sharing is the launch of a Churches Fund. It is fully recognised that the church community already supports a wide range of projects, and it’s important that we should not drain support from any of these. This is therefore seen as a call for an even higher level of generosity that will bring blessing to the Bristol region, and in turn bless the church. The Churches Fund will be administered through the George Müller Charitable Trust and have clear governance in terms of how funds are released to support key projects and initiatives. Initially the four priority areas will be homelessness, food poverty, debt support and refugees.

Please don’t miss out on this opportunity to share with Marvin.
We would therefore ask you to RSVP to Helen Harrison at the following address:
