New Year, New Gathering

My good friend Benjamin Wheatley has taken the bull by the horns and begun a blog for the Newcastle Cohort. Ben and I met for coffee late last year and discussed the idea of a loose gathering of people to talk about faith, Jesus and church.

I am really excited about this development. There are some good thinkers and practitioners in this part of the world that often get overlooked because of the size of Sydney and Melbourne.

As I look to establish a house church and build on the work of the pub church this is a timely opportunity to wrestle with issues of faith and practice in the 21st century.

Please consider adding the blog to your reader or favourites list as we begin to explore what it means to follow Jesus in Newcastle and the Hunter Valley.

Hi Les,

Happy New Year!

Wht are the differences between a house church and a pub church?

This sound very exciting, Les. May God bless it.
