Jesus: The One for Asia - Scotland Conference 2017

What is the best thing the church can do for the on-looking world? It is a big question with at least one very important answer. We should introduce people to Christ. East Asia is the hub of various religious and spiritual beliefs where the name of Jesus and his salvation is unknown to so many. Join us as we consider the uniqueness of Christ and the glorious hope this is for the peoples of East Asia.

China Christian Focus - London - 29th April

The Christian China Focus (CCF) group was established in the 1960’s when China was closed to all outside influence. It was formed, not only to pray for China, but to study what was happening in China and to prepare should it become possible to share the Gospel there again.

Between two giants – London

China and India are giant nations whose economic rise has attracted global attention in recent years, but their significance as Asian titans is not new for countries like Myanmar, Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam. Historically, the Mon-Khmer race migrated from India to South East Asia, while the Thai-related peoples moved down from what is China today. Theravada Buddhism, the main religion in Myanmar, Thailand, Laos and Cambodia, came from India and during the past seventy years of Communist rule in China – many Han Chinese migrated to South East Asia, intermarrying with locals and then emerging as a business elite in many towns. Yet, while India and China’s influence on these nations is not new, what we witness today is a new chapter of impact, different to what we have seen in the past.
