The full recording from our Kings Family Night where the elders shared the future things God is calling us to in Eastbourne and Seaford, and how we have landed at some of these decisions together.
Here are the five key statements made:
1. Graham and Belinda will be connecting the Kings Church Family with God’s global mission. Having extended periods of time both home and away, ensuring there’s a strong link between the two.
2. We will be actively raising up the next generation of leaders and elders across the church. This has already been happening in each of the venues over the past few years but will now accelerate
3.As we transition into this new phase, Oli is taking on responsibility for Hampden Park (a role he has already been fulfilling the last six months), with Andy continuing to oversee Centro. Dave Holden will be working with the Elders as they look to determine future leadership of Kings.
4. We are now in the process of releasing Seaford to become a standalone church (but remaining part of the family). We will be supporting Jez, Amy and the team in working this all out.
5. Graham and Belinda are staying in Eastbourne, working on Global Mission from this base. They will continue to be an active part of the church, helping shape the eldership and leadership at Kings over this transitionary period. Belinda will continue to oversee developments in discipleship, integration and pastoral care. They will both be involved in the raising up of new elders and leaders and shaping the future leadership structure at Kings.
