Mission and Outreach 

Team Leader: Keith Croxton

At the recent meeting of MOG it was agreed that Mission to the Elderly is a new area for prayer and discernment. This is not about pastoring/supporting those in the church family but reaching out to those who are not in touch with the church. The opening of Clarendon House in the town centre and two other potential openings as led us to consider exploring if the Lord is calling us into this area of mission. Please pray for the Lord’s guidance and for a small team to pursue this.   

The Food Bank faces a challenging year as there will be increased pressure on families because of the cost of living including price rises, tax hikes and the level of Universal Credit. 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

Let the following replies from two of our partners be an encouragement as we pray;
 ‘I hope you are fine. We have received the donation from your church. Thank you very much for your contribution towards the ministry of UBS, it is very appreciated and will make huge difference’
 ‘Thank you once again for your partnership and how much you do to make Mukti shine for Jesus.’
