As many of you know, I have been away this week for AOG Ministers’ training at Mattersey Hall. It has been a week of inspiration and challenge. The main focus of the week has been mission and we were reminded that mission is meant to drive everything we do – its an idea that runs through the whole of the Bible and is about God reaching out to the world. It has been amazing to meet many trainee ministers from other countries on mission here in the UK who have been called to bring the gospel to communities here.

Part of our response to God’s call to mission is to reach out to those in our town and we have now been going into the Swinemoor Estate with the bus for a year. Having made weekly visits after school on Thursdays we feel that there is a real and growing bus community as we connect with the children and families that come onto the bus each week. It was great to welcome some of those kids and families to our Family Fun day last week.As many of you know, I have been away this week for AOG Ministers’ training at Mattersey Hall.

In the Summer holidays we will be building on this and having a real focus on reaching out to the people on the Estate. We are planning to take the bus onto the estate each Thursday from 10.30 to 1.30 to run a holiday club and also provide a free picnic lunch for those who come along. On Sundays there will also be a holiday club (11-12.30 am) running partly alongside our Sunday service to which we can invite children who come on a Thursday. Extra help is needed! If you are able to be part of a team to help with picnic preparation on Thursday mornings do let us know. We may also need help with aspects of the Sunday services in August whilst a team runs the holiday club and of course we are already praying for God to be at work in the lives of the people we want to reach. Please consider being part of God’s mission over the Summer and do keep praying!
