Revive is a move of God among the churches of the borough of Rugby which has been demonstrated in growing trust & developing relationships between church leaders; renewed vision for the church's mission in the area; the emergence of new projects; and the commitment of churches to work together for the cause of the kingdom.
To know Christ and to make him known through empowering individual Christians and churches. We aim to:
Encourage each Christian to develop the heart and mind of a disciple
Encourage the community of God’s people in the Rugby area to work together to fulfil the Great Commission.
Encourage each church to reach out appropriately and effectively to the wider community, reflecting their own character.
