Scripture for the day
Evangelical Alliance Ireland is involved in three main areas:
Coming Together (Unity)
We work to bring Christians together from across traditional divides.
Building cross-cultural networks
Seeking to build cross-cultural regional relationships — through church leaders first and then through congregations.The common focus here is prayer.
This initiative is to call all who self-describe as Christians to a day of prayer for Ireland. It is expected that such a day will raise awareness amongst Evangelicals, as well as the broader community, of our dependence on God and the potential of Godly humility in the country.
Level 3 Dialogue
This initiative consists of various ongoing dialogues with those who self-identify as Christian but would not be Evangelical.
This activity focuses on encouraging and supporting local and regional networks of leaders who meet together regularly. It includes EAI casting vision and having guided conversations with Christian Leaders in different regions.
Speaking Out (Voice)
We speak out on key issues facing Irish society and present different perspectives.
CS Lewis Lecture
The C.S. Lewis Lecture is public lecture to bring a Christian perspective to some national issue. Leaders from the spheres of business, media, politics and voluntary sector are invited. Attendees come primarily as Christian business and academic leaders host their colleagues at the event. The focus is to “influence the influencers” in our city and country.
At various times EAI is contacted by the media for a view on particular topics or to send a representative to Radio or TV shows. A journalist works for EAI one day per week. The function of the Journalist is to report from the Christian world into mainstream media so demonstrating the gospel in action. The Journalist also assists where EAI members need media support for special events or training.
The vision behind VOX magazine is to see Christians in Ireland informed, inspired and equipped to engage with one another and with Irish society.We look closely at what is happening in our nation, ask challenging questions and share and celebrate God’s work in lives and communities. It is written in a contemporary style and as much as possible without a Christian “language” so that it can be easily read by those outside of the church.
Starting New Things (Catalyst)
We support and encourage new intiatives in Ireland.
The Conversation websites
This project will change EAI e-presence to fully complement our labour-intensive catalyst work and so enable automatic “catalysing” via social media and other online solutions. Using this solution, we hope to enable more Kingdom initiatives arise without our direct involvement.
Seeking to identify areas where there is no Evangelical Christian response to social injustices and identifying best response.
