Globe Church London

The-Globe-Church-logoFor some time, behind the scenes, planning has been underway, preparing for the imminent launch of the Globe Church. This is an exciting new gospel venture on the South Bank of the Thames, here in London.

My involvement in this is minimal. Technically this is not an Antioch Church Plant. However, we’re delighted that Mike Sohn an Antioch Planter will be part of the team supporting and working together with the principal planter, Jonty Allcock. Jonty wrote an article on the FIEC website a few months back defending the rationale for the plant. It’s entitled ‘Does London Need Another Church?’ Mike will remain part of our church planting workshops, mentored by an Antioch Church Planting Coach and financed through the Antioch Plan. And wonderfully Jonty will access whatever exeprience and expertise we can provide and undoubtedly add to it by joining us for our Co-Mission Church Planting Consultations.

Trevor Archer, one of the key players in the plants’ planning and one of the four recenty installed ‘bishops’ at the centre of the re-invigoration of the FIEC, has written about the plant here.

It’s not going to be easy. Planting is hard graft. Planting in Central London is especially demanding, where the ‘churn’ of people can feel like you’re running church with a revolving door. Pray for Jonty, Mike and the team. And pray that through the exciting establishment of this new church plant the very people that they long to hear and engage with the gospel, hear it. And engage with it.

    ‘Does London Need Another Church?’

    I rejoice to see any Christian church planted that follows the teachings of Jesus Christ.

    But at this vital time in its history, what London (and Britain) desperately needs is more independent evangelical *Anglican* churches. The poor spiritual state of the Church of England hangs like a dead weight on the whole country, and the best way to counteract that is by establishing new Anglican church plants, which are outside of the control of the CofE hierarchy, but hold to the doctrine of Canon A5 and the Jerusalem Declaration.

    The primary focus of committed evangelical Anglicans should be on the planting of Anglican churches.
