What we do
Gather: To build relationships and unity
We gather Christians at a variety of events small or big, such as a city-wide gathering for over 5k people at Ashton Gate stadium in 2012 and at the Party in the Park and College Green, also for thousands, in the following two years.
We also have lunches for the eight Presidents. We have lunches for the leaders of Churches Together (and similar) groups and the Communicators across the Christian community.
Grow: To learn from God and each other
Three times a year, there is a Prayer Breakfast with the Mayor, with 50 to 100 church leaders, who pray together for one another, and for the whole of life across the city.
We learn from each other and increasingly gain a vision for the city and the whole of life. For example, at gatherings for about 500 with over 50 stands at the Cathedral for Spectrum in 2011 and 2012, or for thousands at the Colston Hall in 2013, at the Going Deeper conference, with seminars to explore the spheres of life.
Go!: To act together and as individuals
We collaborate with Christian Action Bristol
to engage strategically with the Mayor and Council, for example through 7 Offers and Asks and the Christian community's response to COVID-19. We also encourage individuals to help impact the whole of life across the region, for example through learning hubs in 2017 and 2018 with LICC.
At the Ashton Gate stadium gathering we prayed for and released thousands of everyday Christians to help transform the whole of life in the Bristol region.
