IT’S TIME TO REACH OUT!

In June Abigail Parr, started as S Chad Church Community Development Worker
since then she has been hard at work to help our mission and community work
grow.

We’ve got some exciting plans including:

linking in with Butler Green Intermediate Care facility
holding a regular social and healthy life sessions aimed at older people,  
supporting the mental health needs of our younger families. 

This is just the start of
what we could do!

For this work to be a success we need volunteers to give a little bit of time to help.
We need tea-makers, plan makers, washer-uppers,
chatterers and natterers, 
and
anyone who has a heart for those around them

Can you help?

If so, please contact Abigail at: abigaillparr@gmail.com or on: 07525 017 330

WE ALL HAVE A STORY

When we testify of God’s goodness in our lives, our words can bring life to everyone who hears them. 
Revelation 12:11 says, “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony.” 
By simply sharing our story, we can help others overcome doubt, fear or confusion. 
We can show people - and ourselves - how far we’ve come, while glorifying Jesus.

The September/October collection will be part of our Harvest donations
