The Church has the extraordinary gift of the Eucharist through which to show the world its true life… [In] gathering, singing, listening, speaking and moving together, we become contemporaries of Christ, drawn more deeply into God’s life and future hope for creation.’
Robin Greenwood and Sue Hart are passionate about the idea of the local church as community. They believe that although as representatives, clergy and other leaders are required to be faithful on behalf of all God’s people, it is now urgent that everyone be equipped to participate fully in God’s mission, through many roles and gifts. Taking the Eucharist as a framework for Christian community living, Being God’s People helps groups increase the local church’s confidence and ability to:
welcome and integrate newcomers
make new disciples
prepare Confirmation candidates
make new leaders
live in the gift of the Eucharist
grow in intimacy with God
encourage all to become a compelling part of God’s story
