I Heard it Through the Grapevine

Posted on 13 August 2014 Gavin Glenn

Developing a social mission project within the local church

How can churches engage meaningfully with the needs of their local context, beyond the confines of their existing congregation?

Rooted in a robust biblical theology for the gospel priority of social mission, Grapevine is an example of a community project that set out to combat poverty and injustice by offering love ‘with no strings attached.’ The story of its conception, establishment and evolution – as well as the lessons learnt, not least the journey taken by the church congregation – can offer instructive encouragement for those grappling with this very question.


The Grove Evangelism Series offers concise explorations of key areas in evangelism. New titles come out every February, May, August and November.
