New Springtime

  • History

In mid June 2008 four members of the Alpha board suggested that interested people be invited to join them on four successive Sunday nights to pray for a Spirit filled revival in the Church.

When the four weeks had passed the meetings continued by common agreement. Sometime later the eighteen or so participants acknowledged that they were becoming a community with a common sense of purpose.

As a result they wrote a mission statement which expressed their core vision in these words:

“With the help of the Holy Spirit, we will engage in evangelisation ourselves, as well as teaching, training and equipping others who also desire to evangelise those who have not yet developed an intimate personal relationship with Jesus as their Lord and Saviour.”

In May 2009 the members were led by the Spirit to call themselves the New Springtime Community and to choose the buttercup as their logo. Sometime later a team of four was selected to lead the community.

In 2011 the members agreed that they would commit their energies primarily, though not exclusively, to one or other of three interconnected streams; Evangelising; Formation; and Intercessory Prayer.
