John-Carne“I am impressed by the scope of the initiative ... The strength of the scheme is that it is aimed at a number of very real discipleship targets in an age when the Church is:

• challenging its committed people to deeper discipleship
• seeking to reach the many who are unconnected

debbie-thrower_CO“C4L reinterprets for new generations the gospel imperative to ‘abide in me’. Step-by-step it shows what Jesus meant by ‘abide in my love’. Here, though, there’s no archaic language ... only plenty of fresh ways to get a handle on what it means to be a Christian in the 21st century. 

Stephen-Gaukroger“C4L really is excellent material giving a refreshing new way forward for relevant outreach to supplement Alpha and Christianity Explored. I love the clarity of the visuals, the layout of the questions and the user-friendly accessible style. I pray that it will be widely used and am pleased to commend it to churches, leaders and all who want to help people connect or reconnect with God.” 

Stephen Gaukroger, former pastor of Gold Hill Baptist Church , President of the Baptist Union and Director of Clarion Trust International

PeterMugshot‘My continuing research of church trends and the situation facing Christianity in the UK indicates that more effective connections need to be made if the decline is to be reversed.  The resources of Connect4life present an important new opportunity to help churches forge those new connections with both ‘unchurched’ and ‘de-churched’ – they are worth checking out’.

Dr Peter Brierley

The Rt Revd and Rt Hon Lord George Carey of Clifton

“I thought I led a good, kind life – I knew right from wrong, good from bad. However, I would sometimes react badly and unhelpfully to what life threw at me. A good friend introduced me to C4L. I found the course searching, insightful and full of hope. It opened my eyes to a whole new way of living. With the prospect of becoming ‘connected’ I joined an Alpha Course.” 

Lesley, user of unconnected materials

“Both booklets have been, and continue to be, very helpful. They are easy to read and understand; the direct questions have caused much soul searching, which although difficult for me to address at times has always been positive.”

Linda, user of disconnected/ reconnected materials
