Mission and Outreach 

Team Leader: Keith Croxton
 

Food Bank
During December there will be around 60 special Christmas food parcels being delivered to needy families in the community on top of the normal referrals/requests. Please pray for the packing of all the parcels, the delivery and good conversations on the doorsteps. There will also be literature included from the church sharing the good news of Christmas so pray the Lord will bless this whole exercise and lives will be touched by God’s love in action.

The Centre
Please pray for the new initiatives taking place in The Centre:

  • Sew Lovely
  • Pop up Prayer
  • Kick Start

and give thanks for the hirers who remain loyal and are slowly being able to start their groups again in December.

Community
Can we please pray for those families struggling this Christmas time in our community because of redundancy, loneliness, loss of loved ones, financial pressures, many as a result of covid. And pray for all those from our community working in the Health Service as covid will not be taking a break over Christmas.

January
Mission and Outreach will be discerning God’s vision for outreach into our community during 2021. Please pray for their meeting on January 28th.
Please pray that we can start Coffee and Company and Tea and Chat in The Centre and the Tuesday lunch in church as soon as possible this year. These times of being together have been sorely missed by many in our community, especially those who live alone.
And please pray that The Centre, including the garden, will be in full swing by the Spring with church initiatives underway and the hirers all returned.

Can we pray for our mission partners at the start of a new year.
