What is Underground Church?
Underground Church is a new and unique study and prayer event being hosted at St. Patrick’s Anglican Church. It is inspired by a similar program called Secret Church which was pioneered at The Church at Brook Hills in Birmingham, AL.
The inspiration for Underground Church is twofold. One, it is a sobering fact that we live in a time of great Biblical illiteracy within the Church. Simply put, the people of God are not reading the Word of God. Secondly, we observe that, around the world, where the Christian faith is often persecuted, the Church is actually growing. As it grows, there is a deep and profound hunger for the Word of the Lord. Often people will walk miles to simply hear someone teach the Word. Because their hunger is so great, they will often pray and study for hours.
We felt we could learn something from them.
We wanted to offer an experience that both gave us, as a parish, the opportunity to spend an extended time together in studying the Scriptures and build awareness of the challenges and very real dangers faced by many of our brothers and sisters around the world’s Anglican Church.
We have gathered for UC#1 and #2. Underground Church #3 is scheduled for April 29, 2017 at St. Patrick’s Cole House for a time of teaching, prayer and worship. We will study the Word together, and take the time to learn about the persecuted church, pray for them and pray for our Parish as well, that we would be as hungry and committed to the Scriptures as they are.
