Eat, Pray, Tell

Eat, Pray, Tell

A relational approach to 21st century mission Andrew Francis Published 19 January 2018 £7.99

Jesus told his disciples to go to a town and to find someone who would receive them as a guest. They were encouraged to eat within the community, build friendships, make contacts and teach the gospel. In this exciting book, Andrew Francis urges us to notice the order. The disciples were to seek the welfare of others by praying for and healing them - in other words, by meeting their obvious needs. It was only then that teaching and telling about the 'reign of God' would begin. This was Jesus' strategy for mission. Andrew Francis suggests that it should be ours today.

Holy Habits: Worship

Holy Habits: Worship

Neil Johnson, Tom Milton, Andrew Roberts Published 19 January 2018 £4.99

Worship can arise from a glad heart, but it can also be the deliberate choice of a hurting one. All of life can be worship when lived for love of God. Learning to make everything we do in our daily lives a worship offering to God is about 24/7 life, everyday discipleship.

Holy Habits: Sharing Resources

Holy Habits: Sharing Resources

Neil Johnson, Tom Milton, Andrew Roberts Published 19 January 2018 £4.99

To have 'all things in common' is about both giving and receiving, and it needs to be mutual. Sharing may not be the obvious route to take and it may take courage to initiate it, but we know that it is often ultimately more rewarding than simply giving.

Holy Habits: Serving

Holy Habits: Serving

Neil Johnson, Tom Milton, Andrew Roberts Published 19 January 2018 £4.99

Jesus himself came as one who served, and our calling as followers of Jesus is to proclaim the gospel by living on earth as if in heaven. Every act of love, justice and peace is a taste of how God's world is to be. We live this calling personally in our daily work and in our local communities.

Holy Habits: Making More Disciples

Holy Habits: Making More Disciples

Neil Johnson, Tom Milton, Andrew Roberts Published 19 January 2018 £4.99

Jesus said 'Go and make disciples' to the first disciples, but the command is for us too. It's not our job to bring people to faith, but we are called to share our faith at school, in our places of work and leisure, and in the communities in which we live.

Holy Habits: Introductory Guide

Holy Habits: Introductory Guide

Neil Johnson, Tom Milton, Andrew Roberts Published 19 January 2018 £4.99

Holy Habits is an initiative to nurture Christian discipleship. It explores Luke's model of church found in Acts 2:42 - 47, identifies ten habits and encourages the development of a way of life formed by them. The habits are: biblical teaching, fellowship, breaking of bread, sharing of resources, service, eating together, gladness and generosity, worship, prayer and making more disciples. The resources have been developed to help churches explore the habits in worship and other group activities (all-age or age-specific) and live out the habits in whole life, missional discipleship.

Holy Habits: Gladness and Generosity

Holy Habits: Gladness and Generosity

Neil Johnson, Tom Milton, Andrew Roberts Published 19 January 2018 £4.99

Gladness and generosity go together in this Holy Habit because they are inextricably linked. A generously forgiving and trusting nature is often - though not necessarily - a cheerful one. But the root of giving that is generous and cheerful is thankfulness, as we realise what God has done for us and respond with gladness.

Holy Habits: Fellowship

Holy Habits: Fellowship

Neil Johnson, Tom Milton, Andrew Roberts Published 19 January 2018 £4.99

The Greek word translated as 'fellowship' in Acts 2 is koinonia. It is a word rich in depth, meaning and challenge. Our Christian faith is not simply a private, personal affair, it unites us to one another through Christ.

Holy Habits: Eating Together

Holy Habits: Eating Together

Neil Johnson, Tom Milton, Andrew Roberts Published 19 January 2018 £4.99

At first glance, the Holy Habit of eating together seems like an easy one. Many of us enjoy eating together with family and friends and it is often a regular feature of church life. But this Holy Habit invites us to do more than simply consume food, it invites us to explore how we eat together and with whom.

Holy Habits: Breaking Bread

Holy Habits: Breaking Bread

Neil Johnson, Tom Milton, Andrew Roberts Published 19 January 2018 £4.99

This exploration of breaking bread works with a broad understanding of the term: one that includes and honours the practice of Holy Communion, but reflects upon breaking bread in other ways and contexts too - ways that also make Jesus known.

Faith in the Making

Praying it, talking it and living it Lyndall Bywater Published 16 February 2018 £7.99

This accessible, devotional resource will inspire individuals and groups to live more confidently for God in today's world. Heroic faith is far more attainable than we often think!
