Reaching people in Essex


Our evangelism book table goes out into the streets of Loughton, Debden and Waltham Abbey on a weekly basis, and recently we have started to take the book table to Waltham Abbey too. We take evangelism seriously because the bible tells us that we need to 'go out into all the world and make disciples of all nations' (Matthew 28:19-20).

We believe that the gospel is GOOD NEWS for all people, and if we have good news - then we should share it!

At Goldings we all try to share our faith in different ways, but our evangelism team go out with a book table filled with quality christian books, information and bibles, to be freely given out to those who are interested.

We find that many people today DO have questions they always wanted to ask, and do sense a spiritual emptiness in their lives. At the Book Table we hope to give them opportunity to discuss issues that are meaningful to them, and to answer any questions they have. In addition to this we hope to:

  • Challenge people to take the message of Christ seriously - and to really think about their spiritual condition.
  • If they need prayer, we pray for them.
  • If they need help or encouragement, we try to offer support.
  • We try to bring the church to the people on a street level.

We have seen people come to salvation, join the church, and have lives that are radically changed through the ministry of the Book Table.
