St Botolph’s without Aldersgate, London EC1A 4EU
How do we nurture young Christian leaders in an increasingly hostile and secular society?
How do we give the next generation a vision for life shaped by the gospel of Christ?
How do we keep the task of disciple-making central in a climate of political uncertainty and moral flexibility?
These questions, familiar to those in the UK, are mirrored by the Church in East Africa. The Kenyan Church is no stranger to social and political division, or the emergence of an urban and tech-savvy population. As instability, financial insecurity and anxiety about the future plague the west, we would do well to listen and learn from our Kenyan brothers and sisters. They are living out their faith in daily dependence on their heavenly Father, with no state to fall back on.
At our 2018 summer meeting, Crosslinks mission partner Andy Harker and former iServe Africa apprentices will share their experiences of passing on the baton in these uncertain times. Andy has been extensively involved in iServe Africa, an indigenous Kenyan organisation that promotes faithful bible teaching and servant leadership among young people.
Refreshments will be served from 4.30pm and the Crosslinks Annual General Meeting will begin at 5pm. At 5.45pm Andy Harker will speak about the ministry of iServe Africa.
Directions: The entrance to St Botolph’s is via Postman’s Park, which is on Aldersgate Street/St Martin’s Le-Grand. It is a five minute walk from both St Paul’s and Barbican tube stations.
