EVERYDAY MISSION FOR THE WHOLE CHURCH
Lecturer: Tim Chester

£6 (including light refreshments)
Far from being the occasional activity of an enthusiastic few, mission is rightly seen as ‘from everywhere to everywhere’ and as involving every one of God’s people, in every situation of life. But does that really include everything – chatting with colleagues as well as campaigning against injustice? And how does evangelism work in everyday life? In particular, how might we share the good news about Jesus at a time when the Christian faith is increasingly treated with suspicion or contempt?
In this year’s John Stott London Lecture, Tim Chester will draw lessons from 1 Peter, exploring the relationship between whole-life discipleship and mission as these flow out of the good news of what God has done in Jesus – for us and for the world in which we live.
Dr Tim Chester is the pastor of Grace Church Boroughbridge, North Yorkshire, a faculty member of Crosslands Training, and the Chair of Keswick Ministries.
He is the author of over 40 books on a wide variety of topics, including (with Steve Timmis) Everyday Church: Mission by Being Good Neighbours (IVP), and (most recently) Enjoying God: Experience the Power and Love of God in Everyday Life (The Good Book Company). He is currently working on a book on John Stott to be published in Crossway’s ‘Theologians on the Christian Life’ series.
The John Stott London Lecture is organised by representatives of All Souls Langham Place, A Rocha, Langham Partnership, and the London Institute for Contemporary Christianity.
