GEAR - the renewal movement
serving the United Reformed Church

We are a voluntary network of Christians who long to see evangelism and renewal become part of the heartbeat of our denomination.

We are convinced that effective ministry and fruitful mission can happen only under the anointing of the Holy Spirit. Therefore we work and pray for personal and corporate renewal, looking to see individuals and churches move into a deeper intimacy with Jesus Christ.

GEAR invests personnel and resources, actively participating in the life of the Church through:

  • Mobilising Prayer - prayer guides in print and online, and a network of intercessors.
  • Publications - booklets, a national 'In GEAR' magazine and a resource CD for ministers in training.
  • Conferences - several inspirational annual retreats for adults and youths.
  • ERAs - three field-workers funded by GEAR as a resource for local churches exploring evangelism and renewal.
  • Ignite & Dunamis - one-day introductory event, and in-depth training retreats, equipping people for Spirit-empowered ministry.


All these ministries are made available to the whole church. As a voluntary network, our work is wholly dependent on the support of those who share our aims and choose to covenant with us as members.
