CCBN is an Isaiah 61 Church
The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour and the day of vengeance of our God,
to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion—
to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair.
They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendour. They will rebuild the ancient ruins and restore the places long devastated;
they will renew the ruined cities that have been devastated for generations.
Jesus for All
CCBN (Christ Church Bridlington Network) has a big vision to see the good news of Jesus proclaimed to the town of Bridlington, the region and the world through works of rebuilding, restoring and renewing.
We are a church of churches in which each one is a ‘planting of the Lord for the display of his splendour’. We believe Jesus is for all – so we seek to know him at work in our own lives, grow to be like Jesus with lives worth imitating and go sharing the good news of Jesus in daily life.
We have three ways in which we function: sending, showing and serving.
Know Jesus deeply, grow as everyday disciples, go as the Father sends us
Five well worn paths of discipleship. These are the things in our lives that help to shape and form us as ‘Jesus for All’ people. The Cave is the place of personal relationship with God. Companions are those God has given us to influence our lives. Congregation is the larger group we gather with for worship, usually one of the Network Churches. Coaching is the relationship we have with one or two others that helps us grow as disciples and leaders. Community is the relationship we have with the world around us as missionaries to our homes, workplaces etc.
CCBN values scripture, the prophetic & prayer, real lives and real transformation, passionate worship and access for all. We recognise that we are a work in progress!
