The Moretolife Network is for people who are exploring what it really means to live a Christian life in 21st century Britain and particularly for those who believe in God but don’t do (institutional) church – you’re not alone!
I am just starting to work out the best way to link up with people. If you or your group would like to be part of this network, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
A proposed definition of church:
“The plural of disciple is church” (Following Jesus by Alison Morgan) – church is simply two or more people seeking to follow Christ and be agents of God’s mission in the world.
The aim of this network is to enable small groups of disciples (churches!) to connect together to support and learn from each other.
Michael Moynagh (Church in Life, 2017) proposes that church should be defined by 4 relationships:
1. Up: our relationship with God
2. In: our relationship with one another within our immediate groups
3. Of: our relationship with the whole body of Christ, recognizing that our groups are only a small part of the body.
4. Out: our relationship with the world – our service to the world as agents of God’s Mission
Please feel free to post resources, events, reflections, thoughts that may help others in the Network to strengthen these 4 relationships – and your thoughts on the proposed definition of church given above are very welcome!
