It was exciting to hear of the church planting initiatives happening in cities around the globe. I was struck by the great need to plant churches in our major cities and the opportunities they present for building God’s Kingdom on our doorstep.

If you want to speak to those working on the coal face setting up churches go along - you won’t be disappointed. Gordon Tyler, Regional Finance Director - Marriott Hotels
