The Engage 2015 UK Equipping tour took place from late June and into July and was an opportunity for Church leaders to learn about the Engage resources. The resources were demonstrated in various ways so leaders had a more detailed understanding of how they work and what is available to them, with over 300 leaders across the UK in attendance throughout the tour.
Beginning in Belfast the tour also visited Newcastle, Manchester, Leeds, Leicester, Birmingham, Milton Keynes, Brighton, Twickenham, Exeter and Rugby. The tour team consisted of Marty Woods, David Chawner and Richard Witham as well as other representatives from Scripture Union and Fusion.
This tour was a follow on from the Engage 2015 Vision tour earlier in the year and received a very positive response from churches across all denominations. There was an excellent response in Belfast with over 100 church leaders at the equipping event.
David Chawner says ‘People were enthused to get involved in some way. The tour undoubtedly led to action from everyone who turned up and that was the objective.’
The Engage 2015 team are now receiving emails from churches organising events and wanting more details. Do keep an eye on the Engage 2015 website to read stories from these events.
