Dr Iman Riad is a consultant gynaecologist in London. She was born in Cairo, Egypt in a Christian family with an orthodox background.

Her journey with the Lord started from the age of 12 years, even earlier. Since then, the Lord took her through a journey of special discipleship with ecumenical exposure and ministry where both, Eastern and Western Christianity, were being closely knitted together within her.

The journey went through: Orthodox upbringing in family and church services, Evangelical Sunday school, Catholic education, YWAM DTS, a large ecumenical ministry in Egypt, then ultimately being led into the discovery of the wells of the rich inheritance of the Early Church of the first 4 centuries when the church was one and before any of its divisions.

Iman came to the UK in 1993, for specialising as a gynaecologist, but God had other plans! God opened doors to share the Early Church teaching and life to western groups and churches, both in UK, Europe and elsewhere.

However since 2007, there was a deep desire and concern regarding digging the special wells of the U.K.’s spiritual inheritance. Along with prayers, a research was carried out. This included researching available material, visiting the spiritual landmarks of this land together with compiling a presentation covering the timeline and the spiritual genetic constitution “DNA” of the U.K.’s spiritual inheritance and how it could be restored at our present time.

Iman is single and is part of a wider community of married couples and singles. She has a heart for the Early Church inheritance , community life, and supporting those who wish to remain Single for Christ. She continues the journey that God has led her in, sharing the teaching, providing mentoring and leading small groups and discipleship schools.

It has been said “speaking your truth is the most powerful tool you have”.

I left school at 16 to pursue a rock ’n’ roll dream as a drummer. In my early 20’s I had a transforming faith experience and became a follower of Jesus.

Adventures in music brought the privilege of playing with many wonderful and well known artists and on the way stories emerged; stories of faith, hope and a love that is there for all.

I look forward to sharing these with you – Terl Bryant

Friday nights – Grace: Flowing Out

On three Friday nights in March John Trimming from community will lead three reflections on The Gift of Grace

+ Friday 9th March: Grace, Freely Given

+ Friday 16th March: Receiving Grace

+ Friday 23rd March: Grace Flowing Out

We will be reflecting on Luke chapters 1 and 2, reflecting on the story and the characters which show the motion of God’s grace towards us.  Grace is brought near (“the Lord is with you”); is received by Mary; and flows out through her visit to Elizabeth.

We will also look at the other characters in these chapters, and onwards into the beginning of the Lord’s ministry – when the kingdom is announced as “near (“The kingdom of God has come near” Mark 1 v 15).  So the flow of grace to which Mary said “yes” flows out through Jesus.

Mary the mother of the Lord has a unique place as a figure in the Bible, and in the story of Jesus.  “Favoured” by God, her response is immediate, courageous and trusting; she has been called the “first disciple”.

Reflecting together on these chapters will be an opportunity to be reminded that grace is the beginning, and the basis, of everything in the Christian life.  God’s grace is sufficient: we are all called to be “full of grace”, to surrender, receive, trust in, and flow with the river of grace God wants to send into our lives.
