As a follow on from last year’s GOD SPEAKS: Good News for a church in exile material THRESHOLD: A Place of Transformation comprises six sessions adaptable for use in home Bible study groups, midweek meetings or church services. Threshold will offer one way for your congregation to engage with the General Assembly’s theme for 2013/14.
Backed up by on screen input from Dominic Smart, Minister of Gilcomston Church in Aberdeen, the Bible studies take us back to a crucial turning point in the growth of the church in both breadth and depth in the Book of the Acts of the Apostles chapters 10 and 11. Six DVD clips tell the stories of a variety of congregations from around the island of Ireland who are seeking to cross thresholds in their life and witness for God. The stories highlight crucial areas of our church’s life, including relating to migrants, mission to families, connecting with outsiders, showing practical care in the community, building good relations and forging links with churches in other parts of the world.
