There is a great gospel need in the city. 450k+ people work in the City of London. That is 155k+ people/km2. Most do not know the Lord Jesus. Apart from the gospel, they have no real hope in this life or the next. They need the gospel, for it alone is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes (Rom 1:16).
Our conviction is that people are saved as they hear and believe the word of Christ (Rom 10:13-17).
The lunchtime talks are one great way of this happening, but we also seek to equip Christians to be speaking to their colleagues about Jesus.
We want people to have the gospel opened up to them, whether through public proclamation, or through simple conversations in the workplace.
We’d love you to partner with us in making Jesus known. Here is how the Talks can serve your ministry in the workplace:
Four Reasons To Get Involved In Lunchtime Talks
Come and join us each week in order to:
The talks offer an opportunity for you to publicly identify with the gospel. This allows you to be known publicly as a follower of the Lord Jesus and for questions to be asked of what you heard at the talks.
The talks offer a public and free opportunity for anyone to hear God’s word being taught, that they might know Jesus too. Each week, you can bring along colleagues to hear a clear talk from the bible about Jesus.
The gospel saves us but also keeps us and builds us up to live for Jesus. The workplace is one of the hardest places to be a Christian, but also the place where we can be most distinctive. So we aim to strengthen believers in the gospel to live distinctive and gospel-adorning lives for Jesus in the workplace.
The workplace provides abundant opportunities to make Jesus known. So we want to help believers to see the huge opportunity of the workplace and then to make the most of it. When believers are built, trained and fired up with the gospel, then we trust that they will go out and speak the gospel, at work, at home and wherever else they go, with great conviction that God works powerfully through his word.
