Acts 20:17-27 The ministry that builds the church
Whether you are a convinced Christian, an interested enquirer or a cynical sceptic, everyone is welcome to join us. Please contact Wes if you would like more information about other things happening during the week including Bible studies, Christianity Explored courses and workplace prayer groups. We can also arrange to have a guided read through of one of the eye-witness accounts of Jesus’ life with you.
These groups aim to deepen our partnership in the gospel, encouraging us to speak and live for Jesus in the workplace.

Many people pray for God’s mission to the City by praying with others in workplace prayer groups. A number of people also meet to pray at 5.30–6pm every Monday in St Helen's. Email Wes for more information.
Guided read through
We can read through an eye-witness account of Jesus’ life and teaching on a one-to-one basis with you.
Many City workers have enjoyed this informal, free seven session lunchtime course to investigate who Jesus is, what he came to do and what difference he makes.
Outside of our usual activities during the week, there are many other events taking place across the year. Everyone is welcome to join us at any of these.
The Mandarin City ministry works to encourage and equip Mandarin speaking Christians for gospel ministry in their offices and to support outreach to Mandarin speakers working in the City.
Encouraging Mandarin speaking Christians in the City
The Chinese Workplace Fellowship is a group of Mandarin speaking Christians who meets once every two months to pray for each other’s ministry and encourage one another. The meetings are held on Friday evenings from 7–9pm in St Helen’s. If you are interested in joining us, please email John.
Outreach to Mandarin speakers in the City
We are running a ‘Seekers course’ for Mandarin speakers on Thursday lunchtimes at St Helen’s from 1.10–1.50pm. If you are a Mandarin speaker and you would like to come along, or if you have Mandarin speaking colleagues who may be interested, please get in touch. Throughout the year we also organise Mandarin outreach events, for you to bring Mandarin speaking colleagues.
If you are going to Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Singapore or other cities for business trips, please contact us. We may be able to introduce you to local Christians and give you some advice on how to share the gospel. We can also provide you with some gospels in Chinese or related books.
