Welcome to On The Move East!
We believe that God is calling his church to'Arise, shine for your light has come' (Isaiah 60). Ordinary church members by the thousands have been out on mission using their gifts and skills to serve and reach out to communities all across the UK. As churches have joined together to meet the needs of those outside our buildings God has stepped in and helped transform people's lives.
Imagine worship bands on your high street bringing the sense of the presence of God among the people. Then picture someone saying "can I invite you to a free BBQ?" At the same time the cooks have set up tables, chairs, preparing the food. People will queue up enjoying the festival atmosphere, the worship, the hospitality. In this relaxed atmosphere table hosts welcome guests, pray for real needs, share their stories of God's work in their lives. It is not unusual for several people to commit their lives to Christ for the first time each day.
Recently we've adapted our On The Move to join in with local Festivals like Flanders Fields World Cup Festival. Enabling local churches to serve free food in Jesus name opens up tremendous opportunities for conversations-"Why are you doing this!". On The Move provides all the equipment, BBQ's, tables and chairs, insurance, and helps recruit and train local Christians to go out with confidence in the Lord to work.
What's next? We are happy to come and present the vision to local church leaders; answer questions; explore possible locations; and look at the costs. We do not charge for our time, only look to cover the direct costs of the mission which varies according to how many people we feed.
A MISSION FOR YOUR AREA
Some pastors have written:
"Our town hasn't been the same since On the Move came- it brought us together in unity & the leaders have met in prayer regularly since then - the whole feel of the town is 'lighter' & On the Move was a catalyst for this. "Rev'd Michael Glover, Ebenezer Baptist Scarborough.
"I think it's an amazing evangelistic tool that is proving to be very fruitful...I have never known such significant numbers of people who are not professing Christians asking some issue to be prayed for, in the course of lunch"Revd David Williams, Christ Church,Winchester
