What we do
Gather: To build relationships and unity
In about 2010, we started to facilitate the Bristol Prayer Networks to pray for the region and also Forum for Change gatherings of Christians in the spheres of life. At the Arise Bristol! Ashton Gate stadium gathering in 2012, we prayed for and released over 5k people involved in the spheres of life.
Grow: To learn from God and each other
We learn together at gatherings for thousands, such as Going Deeper, at the Colston Hall in 2013, with seminars about the spheres of life. Most of the spheres have also had conferences for hundreds, including Love Work in 2016 or Building Bristol as a City of Hope, at City Hall, in 2018.
We connect with national Gather conferences, including the Gather Collective in 2019, when people came from across the UK to see how the Christian community engages with the Mayor, Council and One City Office in Bristol. We also link with Movement Day
, which connects cities globally.
Go!: To act together and as individuals
The Christian community can take strategic action together in the spheres of life, to engage with the city, for example through a Manifesto and hustings of candidates for the Mayoral election in 2016, chaired by EA.
evangelistic mission, facilitated by EA in 2017, saw over 650 first time commitments, with Christians from about 70 churches involved. We also encourage individuals to help impact the whole of life across the region in their everyday spheres of life.
