Welcome to the Gather Movement Newsletter

Dear friend,

Thank you to everyone who joined us for the Gather Movement Summit. We were joined by over two hundred unity and church leaders from across the UK. We had some brilliant conversations, honest prayers and prophetic dreaming. Five things that really struck me...

1. The fact that Church unity is not an optional extra. It's core to who we are. One Church.
2. The powerful address from Andy Burnham, Mayor of Greater Manchester, that the challenges we are facing are not just a year of recovery but may take 10 years.
3. Some brilliant reflections from a host of speakers and guests around the call to cultural, spiritual and social transformation.
4. The tangible sense of hope. Many of us are tired after the last few years but there are some really encouraging stories of the church unifying, becoming more strategic and making a real difference in our communities.
5. A reminder of the power of the arts, as we hosted a mix of poets, song writers, creative designers and comedians exploring  how the arts shape the cultural narrative.

Dwell. Build. Seek.

Co-CEO, Gather Movement

PS if you missed Paul Williams' excellent pre-summit masterclass on the theology of city transformation then I'd highly recommend you check it out here

Thank you for coming to the Summit - amazing to see so many people from over 50 different towns/cities! Thank you to everyone who gifted their time to speak, sing, lead seminars... the calibre of contributions was incredible and we're extremely grateful! Thanks to our Summit partners Bible Society and CAP and our supporters: Evangelical Alliance, Luis Palau Association, Tearfund, Essential Christian, Jersey Road PR, Eternal Wall and Kick.
