Throughout all of 2018 Churches connected with New Wine Cymru will be engaging in mission all across Wales.
In 2017 the Mission to Wales initiative saw 4003 people pray a prayer to start a journey of faith with Jesus on the streets of Wales. In 17 locations over 120 churches joined together in simultaneous mission across the nation of Wales. Many thousands of people were talked to, heard the gospel, were prayed for, and in addition, there on the streets, 4003 prayed a salvation prayer. This is a great start!
In May 2017, a pilot mission was done in one location, before the main mission went across the nation; Over 6 days (6 hours) 374 people responded to the message of Jesus which was a great encouragement.
In July 2017, the main 9 day mission was done in the 17 locations across the nation; Over 9 hours 3351 people responded to the message of Jesus which is such great news!
Then in September & December, throughout the months, various hubs and churches engaged in Mission in a rhythm that suited them.
Again many people responded to the Gospel on the streets
To date we have recorded then that 4003 people have responded to the Gospel on the streets of Wales. This is astonishing
In March NWC are launching the first of 3 Mission months for Wales, as well as the combined Mission days in June 2018
They are encouraging churches to get involved and use it to invite as many people to great opportunities during the month. Mothers day on the 11th and Easter at the very end of the month.
This works in tandem with other Follow up and dsicplsehip methods, like a one – one coffee and Alpha.
In this way, they are hoping to improve the connection between the street encounter and the transition to discipleship.
They are very excited about continuing the Mission to Wales through 2018 and they are excited to see all that God will do again in our nation
