Working with Somerset Gospel Outreach in Somerset
Door-to-door evangelism, open-air preaching and the distribution of good evangelistic literature are the main ways in which Chris seeks to take the gospel to people in the villages and hamlets of Somerset and in the smaller towns. Where possible Chris seeks to work with and alongside conservative evangelical churches to help and encourage them in obeying the Great Commission of our Lord Jesus Christ. Often other believers have felt called to work alongside Chris in their area and have enabled Chris to bring together teams of open-air preachers and door-to-door evangelists. Visiting is also done in villages where there is no evangelistic witness, but where there are people who need to hear the gospel.
Although Chris describes his work as primarily ‘pioneer work’ – the first contact many have with the gospel and the call of Christ – there is nonetheless the privilege of seeing the Lord’s hand at work in people’s lives, with people coming to faith in Christ, those who had fallen away helped and people encouraged to read God’s Word.
Chris is active in many deputation meetings which give opportunities to share about the work with churches throughout the country and encourage many smaller churches.
Deuteronomy 7.9 says, ‘Know therefore that the Lord thy God, he is God, the faithful God.’ Chris says: “We have wonderfully seen and experienced his faithfulness. As an itinerant evangelist, the Lord has provided for us as a family and also for the ministry enabling this vital work of witness to continue.”
