That the Lord has been working powerfully in Koinonia in the past six months we in Koinonia have no doubts, but it is always good to remember. After a summer of much change with several students graduating and several staff members moving on, we were blessed to have continuity in our core, with many students from last year still here. This has allowed us to do many things, most notably set up strong households for the men and women for the first time in over five years, with six members each. The Lord’s hand was very noticeable in acquiring these properties. These households are places of discipleship, fellowship and evangelism and have had a very positive impact on Koinonia this year.

“Koinonia” Our University Outreach in London – Update 2016
Mission Year with Eilidh Graham
This God of ours is a God of blessings, protection, healing and provision. These are the areas where I’ve particularly experienced the Lord’s love this year during my Mission Year in Belfast, Northern Ireland. I’m staying with a family from the local Sword of the Spirit community, Charis, and the love and support of this community have been essential this year as I’ve seen the truth and joy of a life lived among Christian brothers and sisters.
A Weekend That Freed People For Mission
When the prodigal son returns, he is prepared to be renounced as a son: he is willing simply to be a servant. As we know, this isn’t the father’s plan for him, or for any of us. It isn’t enough that we serve, no matter how faithfully. Each of us is first and foremost a daughter or a son. Unless we confidently grasp this identity – the being side of mission and discipleship – then the doing side of mission and discipleship will be lacking.
