Growing as Christ’s disciples
We believe that real growth as Christ’s disciples occurs in the context of learning from His Word, the Bible, in the local church as we praise God, pray to God, and hear preaching about God (Hebrews 10:19-25, James 5:13-20). That said, there are resources that have supplementary value. Here are some resources which you may find useful.
Grace Baptist Partnership
Grace Baptist Partnership has played a major role in supporting our work in Angel. A charity that helps churches plant churches, the Partnership provides a monthly men’s training and fellowship group in several different locations, including London. The Partnership also provides support for church planters and the work they are engaged in while linking these together in a healthy prayer and fellowship network. Look out for special events they are hosting, particularly the annual conference which is always a real highlight!
Association of Grace Baptist Churches (South East)
Our church is a part of the AGBCE(SE). Our building on Chadwell Street shares space with the Association office and we are thankful for the ongoing fellowship between churches in the Association.
Anchored in Truth
GBC, Angel is tremendously thankful for the support and prayers of Anchored in Truth and GraceLife Church of the Shoals in Muscle Shoals, Alabama. This is an organisation and a church that is centred on the Gospel of Jesus Christ and that has been a blessing in practically and prayerfully supported many churches and church plants around the world.
