Want to motivate your whole church for mission and service? Jesus Shaped People is a comprehensive and all-embracing programme, with resources for adults, children and young people. It can benefit a wide spectrum of churches from different traditions and contexts, especially smaller urban, inner city, social housing estate churches, churches with few or no children or young people, or churches without a Vicar or Minister. For an in-depth introduction, you can download the JSP summary leaflet.
From today we are pleased to offer JSP ‘Preparing the Way’ materials in the unrestricted area of the website. Ideal for use during Lent, and or in preparation for the Main Programme adventure, ‘Preparing the Way’ focuses on the life and work of John the Baptist.
We're pleased to announce a new partnership with Rev Andy Thomas and the team at thefuelcast.com. Looking forward to creating a special Jesus Shaped People promotional film in South Bristol soon as well as future JSP Podcasts.
Picture the scene. It’s Saturday night and I suddenly remember I am on rota to lead kids church in the morning. I scrabble around to find my notes to see what I’m supposed to be teaching about. Find my Bible to read the passage. Search Pinterest and my house, to find a suitable craft for the group. Armed with all my knowledge I say a quick prayer. Sunday morning comes and I realise that I only have two children for kids church this morning. My heart sinks slightly…only two.
JSP was well and truly celebrated, and Rev’d Brendan Bassett was warmly welcomed as our new JSP Team Leader, at the gathering on Saturday 11th January at St John’s Church, Great Horton, Bradford.
It was a joy to hear stories from some of the churches who have been enjoying the JSP adventure over the last few years and the difference it has been making.
We warmly invite everyone linked to Jesus Shaped People, including children and young people, to join us for this special Celebration event that will include a warm welcome to Revd.
