In the Workplace?
We are all called to be a Christian on the Frontline - that is wherever God has called us to be on a daily basis. For many of us that is in the workplace, and we all know that that can be very tough - sometimes starting the day with a long commute in a crowded tube.
To help start the day with God why not read one of the books about being a Christian in the workplace (many of which are listed here), listen to a Christian PODcast or Emmanuel sermon on your way to or from work or even visit one of the weekday breakfast or lunchtime meetings in London.
Martyn Eden has recently written an article entitled Work and Mission. Click here to download a copy.
Is there an opportunity to hold a Christianity Explored or Alpha course where God has called you? Let us know if you would like some support in getting a course started.
Finally - please let us know of any other helpful resources you have found.
