We are coming up to another Give Big Sunday, and this time we want to invest in some Future Building at Christ Church Manchester.

We are believing God for big things over the next few years at CCM. We want to ‘Bring Life to the Communities of Manchester.’

We want to see Gods kingdom advance, disciples reproducing disciples, the poor lifted out of poverty, the rich embrace generosity and we want to see life giving churches planted in the communities of Manchester.

It’s a big dream and we are excited to be caught up in this dream with all of you.

Give Big Sunday

There are lots of things that we want to do that Build for the Future of CCM. Through this gift day are hoping to take big steps by investing in a lot of different areas of church life. Some of these things are:

Training – We want to develop a much more intensive gap year programme to train and equip people for particular aspects of ministry. We also want to begin a theology training school. This would be aimed at everyone in CCM who wants to grow in their bible knowledge.

Youth & Kids – We want to develop and expand these ministries and give good resources to disciple our children and young people. We also want to invest in a youth choir and band in Gorton.

New Sites – We currently have a group meeting on a Tuesday evening in a Costa Coffee in the City Centre and we would love to launch that as a Sunday gathering. We are also beginning to think and pray about starting something in the Levenshulme/Longsight area of Manchester

Worship – We want to invest in the creativity present in the church and develop our songwriting and music within CCM, including releasing an EP of CCM original songs.

Resourcing other opportunities to move the church forward as they arise.

All of these things require time, effort and energy! To make them all happen we need to invest in lots of different areas of church life including our staff, our admin systems, and our use of the internet.

I am praying for £12,000. That’s a huge amount of cash that would make a significant different to our budget.

CCM can only do what it does because of your generosity. I am consistently stunned by how much you all pile into Gods Kingdom.

My challenge to you is to think, pray and ask how much do you want to invest?
