Mission and Outreach 

Team Leader: Keith Croxton

Mission to the Elderly - We give thanks that weekly sessions.  which are going remarkably well have started at Clarendon House.  They enjoy singing hymns & we share prayer with them.  Please pray the Lord will bless these times & they will be fruitful. Food Bank - continue to give thanks for local schools & churches as they donate what they collect from their Harvest Services. The requests go on growing but stocks are holding up well at present. Please continue to pray for the families in our community, who will be stretched & for the Food Bank team as they cope with increased demand.

The Centre.  The Specsavers NHS Hearing Clinic, is one of our long term hirers, & is now leaving as Specsavers have a shop in town. This will impact our income so please pray that a replacement will be found soon.  The Centre is facing additional costs owing to the increases in gas/electricity etc.  This has led us to increase the hiring charges for new hirers.  Please pray that this will not affect those seeking to hire The Centre.

Finances - Please pray the MOG will be able to provide the financial support needed to maintain all our outreach activities.  Give thanks for three grants received to support Energise & the Tuesday lunch. Pray for the Tuesday Lunch & the great team of volunteers who without fail provide a superb three course lunch.  It meets a real need for those in our community who are on their own.  It also is a great opportunity to build relationships & chat the gospel.
