A serving spirit I love being with people who have a serving spirit! Last week we had a great ‘away day’ with the team who were the ‘behind the scenes’ people at TOAM. The purpose was to say ‘thank you’ to them and to mark the end of over three decades of running major events […]

The final one Last week marked the end of the TOAM conferences in Brighton, the home city of Terry Virgo, founder of Newfrontiers.

We are approaching a major transition in the family of churches we call Newfrontiers. As we continue to grow God has shown us that we need to become a network of apostolic spheres (as in the New Testament) rather than be centred predominantly on one person, Terry Virgo, the father of Newfrontiers. In February God spoke […]

Continuing the series on Planning we will now look at creating timelines. Timelines A timeline is a critical ‘driver’ in achieving the end goal.

Nigel Ring on June 21st, 2010

The sober truth! How many of your people would say the notices are the most interesting part of your church service?! I venture to guess – not many. Why?
