Ministry Monday: “Build” - Mark Burkill on a pattern for local parish ministry
Posted by Sophia Akouo, 6 Feb 2017
At the JAEC conference last summer, Mark Burkill outlined a pattern for discipleship and biblical teaching in the local parish church.
Revd Dr Mark Burkill, Chair of Reform and Latimer Trust, and Vicar of Christ Church Leyton, spoke of how church leaders must build Christian community. We were encouraged from Titus to build with Christ’s teaching in a way that impacts people’s lives, and so in turn have an impact on the watching world. Mark further shared with us what this looks like in a parish church, namely biblical teaching that goes beyond sermons – from the way we conduct services, small groups, right through to one-to-one discipleship – all so that people are eager to do what is good.
This talk was a useful reminder of how the local parish church can be strategically used to disciple and train God’s people.
Sophia Akouo is an ordinary Anglican churchgoer who enjoys listening to good talks.
