So, another part of our ministry, which is another area completely new to me, is work in schools. We actively take part in school life, leading assemblies in all four primary schools and at the secondary school. This, of course, feeds into the kids work at the corps very well.
There are two of our primary schools which serve needy parts of the town, parts where there are localised social issues and I’ve volunteered to spend a morning at each school just supporting and helping out whatever way we can. Needless to say the headteacher grabbed the opportunity!
The opportunities to build relationships with the children of this town are immense, so will you join me in giving it to the Lord in prayer to see what can come of it. Its preaching the gospel with our hands and actions as well as just doing it with our mouths…both are crucial – take Jesus as the example.
