To support the shared witness of God’s people to the community of Horsforth.
Scripture Romans “Be Joyful in Hope, Patient in Affliction Joyful In Hope”
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can; and wisdom to know the difference.
This last 12 month has been about looking to God and asking “what can we do?” to bring hope. One constant was to be part Horsforth Community Aid Project responding to the challenges of the pandemic including food poverty. Church Services, Outdoor Drop-ins, Farmers Markets, Schools Visits have been on and off but when possible provided opportunities for meaningful encounter and encouragement. Christmas also provided a rich opportunity to celebrate a Jesus “a light in the darkness” sending recorded assemblies to primary, decorating windows, creating a Christmas trail to meet life-size nativity characters with video messages to share.
In these days where plans are only ever penciled, our hope is that we will be able to creatively help our community celebrate Easter.
For Courage and Creativity: To see and take the opportunities to share our hope in Christ both online and in person.
For Leaders: For resilience + reliance on God to sustain.
For Unity in Spirit: across God’s body as we do things differently.
