Netmakers is a movement of local churches working together to see our towns and villages transformed; we want everyone to know the love of God and love of community.
If you’re here, you’re likely to be a Christian who is using your gifts and time to help transform our town. We’ve noticed that many of you are not aware of people in other churches who are doing very similar things to you, and we couldn’t help but wonder what would happen if we drew you together.
We are here to connect you: to help you share ideas, resources and encouragement with each other; to help find like-minded people who share your passions and want to make a difference; to help you work together.
We are trying to create something special: a place where people feel safe, supported and encouraged; a place where people want to spend their time.
To do this, we ask that you resist the temptation to troll, judge, or instigate conflict. This is not a place for broadcasting your views on contentious issues.
This is also not a place for self-promotion. Yes, of course you can ask for volunteers, funding and help, but keep an eye on how many times you’re posting compared with others. This is a place for the small to gather some support and momentum so please let their voices be heard. It’s about building the kingdom, not empires.
We are a learning community. This means that we will try new things, get things wrong, learn from mistakes and try again. “Failure is success if we learn from it” (M. Forbes).
And if in doubt, remember…
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” (Gal 5:22-23)
