Church Notes by Matthew Payne, Vicar of Christ Church, Lowestoft

DRIVING on the right, paying in Euros, everything en français: if you're in France the differences are obvious!

And at the checkout, the café or the campsite you try to bridge that gap. It's a whole different language and culture.

Likewise the generation gap: whether it's music, internet, mobile phones, fashion, values or priorities. There's a whole different language and culture. We see it on TV, in schools, on the street, and in our churches too.

Now the good news of the Lord Jesus Christ is for all, regardless of nationality, age or generation.

Are you French, British, young or old? Are you a baby boomer or Generation X or Generation Y?

The Bible tells us that “Jesus Christ is the same, yesterday, today and forever.”

So how do we pass on the unchanging good news of Jesus, across all the generations, amid our ever-changing culture?

How do we bridge the gaps?

“Reaching the Next Generation” is the theme of this year's Lowestoft Living Word Convention, to be held between October 19 to 22 at London Road Baptist Church, in Lowestoft, with visiting speaker Paul Clarke, from London.

It's run by a partnership of local churches and please join us as we explore how to bridge those gaps.
