ROC Leaders' Morning 8 Oct
We will not be having a breakfast in October but we will be having a morning together on Tuesday 8th October, 9am for coffee, 9.30-11am at Bilton Evangelical Church. This will be focused on the Redeeming Our Communities initiative we hope to further next year in Rugby. The morning will be for discussion, questions and prayer about ROC.
We have already had the opportunity twice to hear from Debra Green who founded ROC, along with one prayer meeting. It would be great if everyone can try to prioritise this morning as ROC is a great initiative bringing the church and the wider community together with the church on the front foot. ROC’s main aim is to bring about community transformation by creating strategic partnerships between statutory agencies, voluntary groups and churches. These partnerships form new volunteer-led projects that address a variety of social needs.
More can be found on the ROC website. Organised by Revive Rugby. For further information please email Sheila Bridge.
What is Redeeming Our Communities (ROC)? ROC's main aim is to bring about community transformation by creating strategic partnerships between statutory agencies, voluntary groups, and churches. These partnerships form new volunteer-led projects that address a variety of social needs. Nationwide, there are over 165 active partnership projects, and many more at the planning and enquiry stage.
We think the ROC model could help the Revive Network churches to reach our community. Through ROC partnerships, Christians and churches have the opportunity of being good news to neighbours — along the way to sharing the good news. Even the ministry of Jesus involved being the good news to towns and cities — along the way to sharing the good news. What is God’s kingdom like? God’s kingdom is a place where people generously work for the good of the community, just like God generously blesses all people — toward revealing Himself to each person.
