Tulips at Cardiff Civic Centre

1. The remarkable recovery of the doctrines of grace in many Churches in the last 50 years.
2. A renewed emphasis on expository preaching.
3. Church planting and Mission.
4. Cross-denominational unity and co-operation.
5. The publication of Reformed literature at a popular and scholarly level.
6. Reformed Theological education and training at LTS, WEST and HTC.
7. Innovatory evangelism through the Christianity Explored course.
8. A widespread burden for revival.
9. Institutions like the Christian Institute, giving us a voice in the public square.
10. A vision of our glorious, sovereign, Triune God in theology, life and mission.
