The Evangelicals

Monday, 3 October, 2016 @ 19:30

£5

DavidSpriggsWe welcome today Revd Dr David Spriggs. David is no stranger to Sherborne. His brother John lived here for many years until his death last year and was a member of the Abbey choir for much of his time in Sherborne.

When planning this series of lectures on different expressions of church David sprang readily to mind as someone well qualified to speak for the Evangelical Churches. Evangelical Churches can be found in many denominations and their witness has had, and continues to have, a profound effect on Christianity in the UK and throughout the world.

David is well placed to talk about them. He spent time at the Evangelical Alliance and wrote an influential research report for Churches Together in England about the changing shape of ‘Christian Unity’ in England.  A key component of this was helping CTE see how ‘Unity’ could be done differently because of the ‘missional’ dynamic rather than ‘church’ dynamic. Such insights arose directly from his background as a Baptist pastor and his work with both EA and the Bible Society.
