Time and Space to see what God is doing through his whole Church
The OneChurch Basingstoke Unity Service 2019 gives Christians in Basingstoke time and space to see the big picture: what God is doing through the whole Church in the whole town of Basingstoke and its district. It gives us an opportunity to engage with each other in ways that bring in the Kingdom of God, where God’s will is done on earth as it is in heaven.
‘That They May Be One’
We will have an opportunity to reflect on Jesus’ prayer for us all as believers:
‘My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one – I in them and you in me – so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. ‘Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world. ‘Righteous Father, though the world does not know you, I know you, and they know that you have sent me. I have made you known to them, and will continue to make you known in order that the love you have for me may be in them and that I myself may be in them.’ (John 17:20-27, NIVUK)
