LifeZone Feature No.2

Kingdom of God in everyday life

This LifeZone will explore what it is to be true disciples, influencing and transforming culture, and advancing the kingdom of God.

Where has God sent you? And what mission is He asking you to pursue in that place? Many of us have already been sent without even realising it. We are sent into our workplaces, we are sent into our neighbours’ homes, we are sent into schools and universities, we are sent as volunteers serving in the local community – we are sent into our culture. Do you have a vision for transforming your context? What would you need to do to make it happen?

  • Kingdom of God in Life - discipleship in the whole of life
  • Kingdom of God at Home - adoption, fostering and respite care
  • Kingdom of God at Work - influencing culture
