Jesus: do you know Him?  

A multi-denominational missional project that explores Jesus launched in Skipton at the weekend


Churches in Skipton want to challenge Christians and non-Christians in the Yorkshire town to know Jesus more in an exciting new project based around the hashtag #doyouknowHim?
Throughout February and March there will be various services, prayers and outreach events, which will include a weekly station on Saturdays in the town aimed at engaging people in conversation about Jesus.  Evangelist and former Baptist Union President the Revd Chris Duffett led some training for the initiative. The churches will also be following a 10-week sermon series on Jesus.  
Among the participating churches is Skipton Baptist Church. Its minister the Revd Phil Burns explained there were two aspects to the question #doyouknowHim?
‘We want to challenge other Christians to know Jesus more,’ he told Premier Christian Radio
‘But not only that, to go out and ask people – “do they know him?’. We know there’s a lot of misunderstanding about who Jesus is and the church, and we just want people to know that they are known and loved by Jesus.'

The initiative has come about following last year’s Easter service planning, which developed into a 10-week sermon and small group series, followed by Skipton Baptist Church and the local Pentecostal church.
Phil said, ‘We then shared the idea with the other churches alongside the thought of doing some outreach and mission work together.’ 
Around 70 people from different churches took part in Chris’s training. A launch service took place at St Andrew's Church on Sunday (28 January - see below).
‘It just feels we are tapping into something God is doing,’ Phil added.
‘I hope that every church in Skipton is transformed by God’s Spirit, to be more pursuing after knowing Jesus, but also to have a heart to show his love out in the streets of Skipton and beyond.’
