All Age

23 Jan

We are currently working with our Sunday morning group doing some thinking about being missional. This Sunday a few of our young people will be worshipping in our Sunday morning meeting and will then go across the road to the retirement home where they will meet and spend time with some of the residents. The idea is to build lasting relationships that will bless the residents but i’m sure will also be 2 way.

This Sunday just gone we had a couple from our church who are in their 70’s and 80’s leading our youth work helping them to think through how they can be Jesus to these people in the retirement home. It was amazing to see the respect that these 2 people were given by our group and also the respect the young people were given. There was an immense sense of God as they spoke passionately about their lives and about the impact that these young people can have.
