Welcome to the Reading Christian Network (RCN) website. RCN is a growing group of church leaders, charity leaders and leaders of organisations who passionately believe that our unity in Jesus Christ is critical if we are to experience whole-life transformation across our towns and cities. We are certain we cannot effect the mission of Jesus to make disciples of everyone, on our own. God has poured some amazing resources into our town and together we will make a difference as we welcome God's Kingdom everywhere. At the heart of RCN is a weekly prayer gathering for leaders who are endorsed by their churches and organisations. This takes place at Greyfriars Church in Friar Street, Reading - every Wednesday morning from 8-9am.
Why unity is crucial
At our Leaders Prayer Breakfast, Steve Goss (Freedom in Christ International) spoke and challenged us to think about the things we are praying for. Sometimes we can find ourselves praying about matters that God has given us authority to 'get on with.' One of the key prayers in the New Testament is Jesus' prayer for unity. Unity is THE context where God commands blessing and as we get on with preaching the gospel and making disciples, God's blessing and fruitfulness flows when we live and partner in genuine, relational unity.
3 times during the year we host extended prayer breakfasts from 8 - 10am. These are special times to strengthen relationships as well as to pray together We sometimes have special influential guests from across the town in order to be able to support them in their specific town roles.
If you are the leader of a church or Christian charity/organisation, you are very welcome to join with us weekly for prayer from 8-9am at Greyfriars Church.
