Welcome to this month’s Update full of news and resources for your church.  

Greenford Baptist Church in London, which is one of the churches featured in the new Pentecost People resource launched at our Assembly in May, is hosting a Pentecost People seminar on Saturday 30 September.  Made up of four video-based sessions for small groups, Pentecost People aims to help churches to embrace the different cultures within them, to learn hospitality in a new way and to experience multicultural worship and prayer.   We hope that those who attend the seminar will leave with the tools to enable the effective and creative leading of worship in an ethnically diverse congregation.  Please make sure that your worship leaders are aware of this seminar and encourage them to attend.

Many people seeking asylum in the UK on the grounds that they fear persecution as Christians or as converts to Christianity in their country of origin call upon their local minister to support their asylum application.  Could I also draw your attention to the new briefing from the Joint Public Issues Team for ministers called to give evidence in support of asylum applications.   This helpful briefing can be downloaded from the JPIT website.
