Triangle Of Fire
At the beginning of 2000 the Pastor shared with the Deacons and Elders what he felt might be a vision from God as to the direction and purpose of GBC in the years to come. The Leaders also felt this was from God and the vision was presented to the church in March 2000.
In May, after two months had been given to the church members to think talk and pray, the vision was again brought before the church. At the May church members’ meeting the church family agreed overwhelmingly that God had spoken concerning the direction we needed to go in as a church.
The vision is that:-
God is going to use the town of Burgess Hill as a furnace of his activity - a local place of explosive revival as He moves powerfully through this town by His Spirit. The town of Burgess Hill will be a local ‘hot spot’ of God’s activity that will ignite the surrounding district, creating a ‘Triangle of Fire’.
As far as the part GBC is to play in this, the top of the Triangle is Burgess Hill and the base of the triangle is made up of the towns underneath the South Downs from Hurstpierpoint to Ditchling (and maybe beyond.)
