The Great Pioneers
May 10, 2021
7:30 pm
Main Speaker:
Mike Tindall (Minister at Grace Church Manchester)
Series
Europe Needs the Gospel
Description
William Carey is often called "the father of modern missions", and his work in India was truly pioneering. This webinar will look at Carey's life and ministry, reveal some of the hard realities behind the legend, and consider the vital lessons we learn about missions.
Mike Tindall
Mike Tindall (Minister at Grace Church Manchester)

William Carey, along with the other missionaries who went out to Serampore in the late 18th century, were pioneering in the way in which they turned principles in to practice to bring the gospel to India in a colonial context. Hard realities shaped their practice, and so much of what they learned and applied has steered modern mission.

But the mission field is ever-changing, with a rapidly changing world, and so we have to constantly re-think how we apply principles and practices to reach a lost world today.

Mike Tindall re-visits William Carey's life and ministry, to think through again how we might learn from him and apply lessons to today's mission in Europe.

The blessings and challenges of church planting
February 1, 2021
7:30 pm
Main Speaker:
Philip Moore (Acts 29 Associate Director & Network Director for Europe
Series
Europe Needs the Gospel
Description
The early church grew meteorically through church planting. Europe is again in a situation where there are very few evangelical churches, so is church planting as important now as it was in the first years of Christianity? For EMF, church planting has always been at the heart of its mission focus.
Philip Moore (Acts 29)

Philip Moore, the Acts 29 Associate Director and Network Director for Europe, has been involved in church planting in France since 2006, and leads our thinking on this topic. In the webinar we'll be considering:

  • The biblical basis for church planting
  • The lessons of church planting from recent experience across Europe, and France in particular.
  • The challenges and joys of church planting.
  • How Christians in the UK can get behind the efforts to plant churches across Europe

Side-by-side: The key role of women in the work of the gospel in Europe … and how can we support them.
January 11, 2021
7:30 pm
Main Speaker:
Jean Woods, Pilar Herrera Carretero, Vivienne Birch and Jenny Mariotti
Series
Europe Needs the Gospel
Description
Jean Woods, Pilar Herrera Carretero, Vivienne Birch and Jenny Mariotti have all been EMF missionaries (the latter in Italy, the others in Spain), serving for many years in different capacities, both by themselves or alongside their husbands. They will be discussing this important topic as a panel discussion, and enabling us to gain insight into the joys and trials of missionary life, and enabling us to understand how support the women workers in Europe more faithfully.

All throughout EMF’s 60-year history, women have played a pivotal role in the work of the gospel in Europe. Some as individual outreach workers, working with women and children; others as wives actively supporting their husbands in church leadership, others working within fellowships teaching and working with women in the churches. The particular challenges and trials of missionary life can often fall heavily on the shoulder of the women, and these can be acute when long-sufferance is needed and disappointments are many. But these challenges are rarely voiced or shared with supporters.
