About JSP

  • It recognises five priorities that Jesus modelled in his three year ministry.
  • It helps churches explore these priorities in enjoyable and practical ways.
  • It inspires churches to reshape themselves in response to this in practical ministry.
  • It has a special focus on including children and young people in the Jesus Shaped People adventure.
  • It helps churches evaluate their progress and maintain their Jesus Shaped focus.

How will it work?

  • Each month will follow a theme of the JSP programme:
    September – People
    October – Teaching
    November – Team Building
    December – Advent + Christmas (break in JSP programme)
    January – Prayer
    February – Prophetic Challenge
  • The service at each of the Emmanuel Group Churches will follow the programme as well as the children, young people and Prospects Group.
  • Teaching will be expanded and explored in house groups or at a midweek group based at Emmanuel.
  • If your house group meets weekly it can continue to do so and explore the weekly material. As many house groups meet fortnightly a midweek group at Emmanuel will be held on one of the non house group weeks to cover that week’s topic.  This will be held on Wednesday evening at 7.30pm. All are welcome to this group (see “Midweek” in Programme)
