Hope at Chapel Lane launch night

What a privilege to meet together in a building with such a rich history of revival. As we prayed together, the cry of our hearts was ‘Lord, do it again.’

As Mitch reflected on mighty moves of God from the past, David Legge encouraged us from Isaiah that God wanted to do a new thing and James Burnett helped us dream about what God could do, we surrendered ourselves once again, knelt with humble hearts and prayed, Lord do it again. 

Oh Lord we need you, our city needs you, this land needs you. Lord, do it again.

cjmedia.online

A free online resource website with bespoke, curriculum linked programmes for schools and churches.

 

In 2020 we recognised the need to provide high quality digital resources to support schools and churches during the covid-19 pandemic. We developed our online resource website to provide a safe and easy to use space to access Christian resources. Our team have produced content for children, youth and adults which includes videos, worksheets, keynotes and live streams.  

 

Schools: we provide online materials for RE lessons (curriculum based for all key stage levels, including exam and non-exam RE), school assemblies and SU groups. Content is also available for SEND schools. 

 

Churches: our resources will help ministers, youth and kids’ workers as they equip and encourage the church especially in evangelism in their community and as they run online services.

 

Cjmedia.online is a place where every school and church on the island can access resources to enable them to teach, equip and reach with the good news of the gospel. Registration is required but content is free to access and download. Users are also able to request bespoke content for their specific context. 

 

Currently there are over 230 teachers registered from over 130 schools (primary, post-primary and SEND) across Northern Ireland. We also have over 100 different churches, youth groups and organisations registered on the website.

 

 

Funding required (ongoing): 

  • Staffing costs – part time member of media team
  • Equipment costs – additional equipment required to facilitate filming at multiple locations
  • Content – new content needs to be produced regularly to remain relevant in an ever-changing culture.

Evangelism Training

Since March last year we have provided online evangelism training for churches in 7 counties in Ireland; Cork, Kerry, Clare, Carlow, Laois, Monaghan and Galway.  Our plan is to deliver training in all 32 Counties by the end of next year. 

 

When it comes to evangelism we can often be like arctic rivers, frozen at the mouth. We generally freeze up because we feel awkward, clumsy, embarrassed, unworthy and unqualified. 

 

This short three session course is an opportunity to help assist us in sharing our faith in Jesus in a relaxed natural and helpful way; a little anti-freeze to help us share the good news with others. We will be exploring what evangelism is, how to connect with others and make the most of every opportunity.

 

We are thrilled to be partnering with churches Sligo for the next training sessions starting 5th October 21. If you live in the area or know someone who does and would benefit from the training, get in touch at info@crownjesus.org

REVIVAL: Chapel Lane Belfast

We are so excited to invite you to the official opening of our new project, Hope at Chapel Lane; a space to worship, serve, learn and pray with a focus on revival and mission.

 

When: Friday 15th October 2021

Time: 7.30pm – 9.30pm 

Where: 50 Berry St, Belfast, BT1 1SX (formerly Berry Street Presbyterian Church). 

Booking is essential via www.crownjesus.org/events

This will be an evening of worship, word, prayer and an opportunity to share our vision for Hope at Chapel Lane and how you can play your part in this exciting venture. 

Berry Street Presbyterian Church was one of the hubs for the revival of 1859 in Belfast. At one point the doors of the church never closed as there were meetings almost twenty-four hours a day. Religious worship continued without interruption; as soon as someone left their seat someone else came and took their place. In the pulpit too, as soon as one preacher stopped, another started. In August that year C.H. Spurgeon led a meeting at Botanic Gardens when it was estimated that 40,000 people attended (recorded in the article The Year of Grace).

The Rev Hugh Hanna preaching in Berry Street on Sunday 19th June 1859 said this in his closing remarks ‘Thousands now crowd with eagerness to hear the Gospel, thousands of who a few weeks ago could hardly have been persuaded to enter the house of God. The problem now is not getting people to come to the churches but finding room for them! God is wonderfully answering prayer.”

The Belfast Telegraph reported later that month in June of 1859 “In almost every street in the City there are converts. In every family some soul has found salvation, even the outcast on the street has repented”

This building is steeped in history for revival, and it is our mission and heart’s desire to see revival on our island again. We’d love you to join us on 15th October, to pray together for a fresh move of God in our land.
