— July 2015 Meeting Report —
A group of 19 pastors and church leaders met at Bessacarr Evangelical Church, Doncaster, for the Gospel South Yorkshire launch. Director of Gospel Yorkshire, Lewis Allen, led us in a reflection on the glory of God as found in John 15:1-5 before explaining the ethos and methodology being adopted by Gospel Yorkshire in its four regions.
The whole group shared its understanding of the planting situation in South Yorkshire before spending time seeking to identfy evangelical witness across the region. Coming out of those discussions was a desire to look more closely at five areas perceived to be ‘gospel blackspots’:
- Dearne Valley
- Doncaster City Centre
- North East Sheffield
The group will meet again at the “Why not now” Conference in October to receive updates and reports of investigation of those five areas.
