Red Letter Christians
Bonny Downs Church is proud to be part of Red Letter Christians UK, finding ways to live out the words of Jesus (often printed in red in Bibles).
Staying true to the foundation of combining Jesus and justice, Red Letter Christians mobilises people into a movement of believers who live out Jesus’ counter-cultural teachings.
Shane Claibourne and Tony Campolo instigated this movement of Christians who take seriously the words of Jesus personally, communally and publicly today. Shane and Tony visited our sister congregation in the Royal Docks in May 2018 (see pics below) and it was there that the idea to bring Red Letter Christians to the UK began.
Our ministers, Dave and Sally are founding trustees of RLC UK. Here Sally discusses what the movement hopes to be...
Sally and Dave have been spreading the word through local and national media…you can listen in via the group’s Facebook pagehttps://www.facebook.com/redletterchristiansuk/
Bonny Downs Church is excited by the plan to launch Red Letter Christians UK in our community on June 15th 2019 – where Tony and Shane and a host of British leaders will lead 3 different events including a public prophetic act ‘beating swords into ploughshares’ as we invite young people affected by knife crime to come and fashion tools for our community garden out of knives handed in Newham’s amnesty. Our local mayor has backed this event and asked us to make her a new mayor chain from some of the metal!
Watch this space for more details of the launch in June and find out more about Red Letter Christians from these publications or youtube channel.
