Stepping Into Mission 2017

Everyone seems to be talking about “being missional” these days. The big question for some is how can talk about being missional be translated into a missional life? For others, being missional sounds thoroughly intimidating and something to be avoided. The Great Commission was given to all disciples, not a select few, and was meant to be a blessing, a gift.

On February 18th a number of local churches will get together with 500,000 Churches (an indigenous mission organisation based in India that sends church-planters to the unreached parts of India) and Agapé Student Life, Newcastle (who have been successfully using very creative and innovative approaches to student mission) to explore what this might look like.

We’ll listen to the Bible, hear stories and think practically about how we can be missional through sessions, workshops, worship, prayer and reflection, and we’ll eat cake. Come and step into what God is doing in Newcastle and around the world! Seminars to choose from:

- Simple, Practical evangelism with our friends and neighbours, with Agapé Student Life

- An Introduction to Apologetics with acclaimed apologist, Jonathan McLatchie - Mission foundations: the importance of intimacy with God, with Andy Carribine (YWAM Newcastle)

- The Church and Social Justice: taking the plunge, with Simon Cook (Action Foundation)

"The Case for Intelligent Design" and "The Molecular Challenge to Evolution" (United Kingdom)

"The Case for Intelligent Design" and "The Molecular Challenge to Evolution" (United Kingdom)

There are few topics as contentious and divisive as the question of our origins: Are we the result of the blind and purposeless outworking of nature, or are we here as the result of the purposeful intent of an intelligent agent? Most people have heard about the approach taken to biological origins known as Intelligent Design.

But with conflicting messages and frequently false representations by the media, people are often left unsure what to think. In this presentation, doctoral student Jonathan McLatchie seeks to clarify and illuminate the key bones of contention that are live in the debate, dispel popular misconceptions about the theory, and answer the most frequent objections.

After a short break, Jonathan will explore some of the challenges to modern evolutionary theory coming from molecular biology. Both talks will last approximately 50 minutes.

The Case for the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus (South Africa)

The Case for the Crucifixion and Resurrection of Jesus (South Africa)

Without question, the most crucial event in salvation history is the faint sound of a heartbeat in a cold lifeless body in a tomb two thousand years ago. The sound of blood rushing through the heart of Jesus of Nazareth is a sound which will undoubtedly thunder throughout eternity owing to its profound implications. Christianity stands or falls with this event. Its profound significance lies in the fact that it constituted evidence that the Judge of the Universe had acknowledged that the payment for our sins had been accepted. But how good is the historical evidence that the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus actually took place?

In this presentation, apologist Jonathan McLatchie will first examine the evidence that Jesus was crucified, and will explore its implications in relation to Christianity and Islam. This will be followed by an examination of the historical case for the resurrection of Jesus from the dead, building a cumulative case that supports the historicity of this monumental event.
