The main purpose of our meeting this year was to explore the model of mission (congregation, compassion, culture & commerce) advocated by HeartEdge, a new ecumenical movement for renewal. Before this, from 6.30 to 7.00pm we presented reports of CTiW activities during the past year; the Meet the Neighbours events; our Prayer Vigil; our income and expenditure; the Prisons Mission and our strengthened Executive Committee. There was also the opportunity for questions and discussion of future plans. Each church which is in paid up membership was entitled to a single vote. Copies of our constitution, which is consistent with the Churches Together in England model can be found on the web-site http://ctiw.london/about-us/
HeartEdge has been initiated by St Martin-in-the-Fields and churches in Westminster have been early adopters in the movement. We heard from churches such as Bloomsbury Central Baptist Church and Notre Dame de France about the reasons why they have joined HeartEdge and of mission initiatives to do with congregation, compassion, culture and commerce. This was an opportunity to hear about innovative mission activity in Westminster and to explore the ways in which integrated approaches to mission impact communities.
It is hoped that texts from the speakers will be added shortly.
Our grateful thanks to Regent Hall Salvation Army for hosting the meeting, and to everyone who contributed.
