Crossroads Mission A Great Success

Background
share close

A joint statement was issued as the Crossroads Mission came to an end by the three ‘host Diocese’ Bishops, Rt Rev. Julian Henderson, Bishop of Blackburn; Rt Rev. Geoff Pearson, Bishop of Lancaster and Rt Rev. Philip North, Bishop of Burnley.

The Bishops said: “Crossroads Mission has been a great success. Travelling across Lancashire to all points we have been amazed at the many ways people have been engaging in their local communities to share the gospel message.

“This hasn’t just been a weekend of nice social events – although many have been VERY social and great fun. There are many organisations out there that put on good events – however our events for Crossroads have also been about sharing the Good News about Jesus Christ with the people of Lancashire at literally hundreds of events which have taken place across the County.

“We want to thank the Archbishop of York; all the visiting Bishops and their teams; the teams from our local parishes and deaneries as well as our Diocesan staff team for all their hard work.

“We give thanks to God for those who have heard and responded to the call of Christ to come and follow Him during the Crossroads Mission.

“In the coming months we pray for an increase in the numbers of people coming to what are called ‘enquirers courses’ in our parishes.

“At these courses people can delve further into what it means to become a Christian and we hope they will choose to make a personal step of faith themselves.”
