Mission and Outreach
Team Leader: Keith Croxton
The first meeting of the Mission to the Elderly group is on August 9th; please pray for guidance in how to move this forward. This ministry is about reaching out to those who are not in touch with the church at all with the gospel. Give thanks that both new care homes are keen for BPC to be involved with their residents.
Food Bank: Requests for emergency food parcels are increasing; the current level of activity represents a 50% - 60% increase on last year. Three new shoppers were recruited recently to help ease the pressure. Please pray that the donations of non-perishable food will hold up during this difficult time.
Please continue to pray for the families in our community who will be stretched and for the Food Bank team as they cope with increased demand.
Give thanks that The Centre is now back to pre- pandemic levels of bookings and that the church now uses it for 60 % of the time. Continue to pray that The Centre will be a sacred place in the heart of the town, where God’s love, compassion and acceptance can be experienced .A place where the first steps to knowing Jesus can be made
