Mind the Gap is a six-workshop course designed to help you and your church or group shape an effective evangelism plan together. It helps you start from wherever you are. It assumes that you want evangelism to have a central place and to move from doing evangelism to becoming evangelistic in everything you are. It is tremendously practical.

Mind the Gap’s DVDs contain all you need to run the six workshops. Use it within your home group, cell, leadership team, or with your whole congregation.

The visually stimulating DVD content is interspersed with questions to discuss which come on the two DVDs enclosed with the pack. The 90-minute workshops are thought-provoking and practical, and will inspire excellence as you develop your plans about how to reach those in your area with the gospel.
Everyone needs a member’s workbook to join in, discuss and learn. Leaders are catered for with a full guide on the DVD-ROM, ready to print.

“Although we were committed to personal evangelism as a church, what we lacked was a church strategy that we all knew about and were all committed to. Mind the Gap gave us a chance to think through as a church what that strategy would be.” Rev Chris Hobbs

“Mind the Gap helped me identify three or four of the people I come into regular contact with that I could pray for, and invite to things. It changed the way I saw my community.” Joyce C

“We have now got a framework – a thread of evangelism running through the fabric of church life.” The Revd Peter Tizzard

“It’s so easy to get embroiled in all manner of things in church life that are secondary, but this seems to focus on the priorities.” David Hill
