In Matthew 28, ‘The Great Commission’ Jesus instructs his followers to ‘Go and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.’
Let me just update you on a few new ways we are trying to do this here at Emmanuel Church Bicester.
As many of you will know we moved as a family onto the Eco Town at the end of May this year. The plan was to begin to engage with the new community forming at Elmsbrook and explore how we can make new disciples in this place.
There is a team of 16 people from various churches across Bicester working together on this new exciting project. We are part of a community gardening project called ‘EGG’ Elmsbrook gardening group, and have organised two successful gardening events in the Elmsbrook community house garden.
