European Christians discuss strategies for 21st century at annual workshop


LANCASTER, England — Church members in small congregations scattered across Europe sometimes are “fooled into thinking that our fellowship can be small and perhaps lacking in vision and resources,” said Alastair Ferrie, minister for the church in Dundee, Scotland.
Ferrie and about 70 other church members were treated to what theminister called a “veritable feast” of fellowship at the recentEuropean Christian Workshop on the campus of Lancaster University.
In addition to British church members from England, Scotland and Wales,attendees came from Croatia, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Spain and theUnited States.
Keynote speaker Tony Coffey, a minister from Dublin, Ireland, told thegroup about his efforts to share the gospel with people from a Catholicbackground. Speakers discussed approaches to evangelism in the 21stcentury, ministry for the hearing impaired and FriendSpeak, aTexas-based ministry that trains church members to reach out to theirinternational neighbors, helping them improve their conversationalEnglish while studying the Bible.
The next workshop is scheduled for Aug. 27-29, 2009.
