The challenges presented by the Covid-19 pandemic are huge, but not a surprise to God. Until a vaccine is found, Covid-19 is here to stay. So the church in Wales will have to adapt and learn to live with it. So what does the future hold? What will evangelism look like in a socially distant world?
The stream’s three sessions at EQUIP 2020 will be:
- COVID-19: What does the Bible say? – John Funnell
The Bible is not silent on the subject of lockdown. In fear of persecution the early church often met in small home groups and Paul shared the Good News during his house arrest (Acts 28:16-31). The early church thrived in such difficult times and we can do the same today. Join this session to learn and apply Biblical principles on how to evangelise in the lockdown.
- You can’t quarantine the Gospel – Andy Pitt
Andy shares the many lessons he learned from lockdown on how to embrace new technology to get the Gospel out into homes and be a practical support to the community he serves post-COVID-19.
- The future of evangelism – TBC
Until a vaccine is found, COVID-19 is here to stay. We will have to adapt and learn to live with it. So, what does the future hold? What will evangelism look like in a socially distant world? We’ll share some ideas on what evangelism will look like in the future.
