‘Though it is the smallest of all seeds…’ Matthew 13:32
When it comes to the growth of God’s kingdom, there are two traps to avoid: we can want to start a ministry with a bang, make an impact and see results fast. We can also become discouraged when what we do seems barely noticeable.
Jesus anticipated such views in Matthew 13 where he compares the kingdom of heaven to a mustard seed. Jesus is ok with small and we must be too. The smallest seed will one day become the largest garden plant imaginable. That means that our least impressive efforts, our smallest investments and our weakest moments in ministry hold potential for great gospel growth!
At this event we’ll hear from Matt Pope – who is now used to ‘small seed’ work. Shortly after arriving in Chile, Matt and his family entered a strict lockdown and for over a year have had barely any opportunity for face-to-face ministry. Former mission partners will tell us about small seeds that they planted and how, four decades on, they are bearing fruit. There will also be a chance to hear from new mission partners planning to move overseas later this year.
This will be followed by a short Annual General Meeting, which is open for all to attend.
The event will begin online at 8pm on 22 June. Details of how to join will appear on this page and will be emailed to all those who have signed-up to attend. RSVP by filling in the form below.
