So where will we plant churches?

The honest answer is that we don’t know. But we know that, as one of our heroes once said, “Jesus didn’t die for clean air – he died for people”. So at the moment our sense is that any town or city with a population over 15,000 people would be a good place to start a church.

*Yes, we realise that Carlisle isn’t *technically* part of Scotland, but they have a vision for planting churches throughout the Scottish borders, and for that (and many other things) we love them.
