  • BUV Flourishing Churches Devotions

    The vision of the BUV is to be a Union of flourishing churches with Christlike followers that redeems society.  At last year’s October Members’ Dinner, I detailed the Flourishing Church Framework that our BUV Support Hub staff developed that was to be a major focus during 2020, in our effort to support churches to flourish. The framework looks at 3 focus areas of church life – congregational life, congregational character and congregational mission. Within each focus area we have identified 4 aspects that may contribute to a flourishing church – 12 in total.

  • BUV Devotion series – Church, Remember Who You Are

    Today the disruption caused by COVID-19 has cast us all into a different world beyond many of the secure familiarities of life as we have known it. This presents challenges, opportunities and temptations for individuals, families, nations – and churches. As churches venture into this disrupted world, it is good for us to remember who we are – remaining true to our identity, beliefs and values as we seek to continue living faithfully and fruitfully with God – still being the Church in our new contexts. To encourage us in this, over coming weeks, members of the BUV’s Church Health & Capacity Building Team will offer short reflections on some biblical images of the Church.
