How does The Filling Station work?
Using monthly mid-week evening ‘celebration’ meetings held in non-church venues we have seen Christian communities grow in depth & numbers where a Filling Station has been opened. The Filling Station offers high quality speakers and teachers, contemporary sung worship and powerful, accessible prayer ministry. Within meetings personal testimonies, led group prayer and networking also takes place.
Our mid-week meetings are designed to be overtly spiritual but presented in a manner that those outside the existing church would feel comfortable in experiencing. Meetings are held on a monthly basis and aim to be short, sharp and focussed in character. We find many people meet God through them and their faith is built up. Many church leaders find them an excellent addition to their existing local efforts.
The Filling Station is not a new independent church movement, rather a model of how existing churches can work together to bring new spiritual life to their areas and in the process bring many people to faith in Jesus Christ. One of our fundamental principles is to promote Christian unity. As it says in Psalm 133: 1 ‘How good and pleasant it is when brothers live together in unity! … for there the Lord bestows his blessing, even life for evermore.’
The Filling Station meets monthly on a Monday evening at the Penmorvah Manor Hotel, Budock Water, Falmouth TR11 5ED, see regular news items for updates on the next meeting.
Are you feeling spiritually dry and wanting more? Perhaps a Filling Station meeting is the answer.
