It’s not every day a church has five new babies to dedicate. But as Ben Holmes reveals, their recent thanksgiving service at Holbrooks Church underlines the faithfulness of God to this church in Coventry.
Dave Gilkerson introduces us to Transforming Lives for Good (TLG). TLG is a Christian charity which is partnering with two FIEC churches in Nottingham to bring support, care and education to children who are struggling in the school system.
For the last couple of years, three FIEC churches in London have been working together to try and set up a secondary school in Croydon. One of those churches is Selhurst Evangelical – and they would like to set up a primary school too – as Rob Pickering explains.
Every Thursday morning Cornerstone Church Nottingham run an evangelistic parent and toddler group. Called ‘Tots and Toys’, Kathryn Jackson explains how it links in with other activities of the church and the fruit they have seen from it in its first three years.
The school holidays are here, the sun is shining (!) and many children and teens from our churches will be heading off to Christian summer camps. Trevor Archer tells the story of one of the organisations behind such camps.
Across our family of churches we have much experience and skills with regards to youth and children’s ministry – but there are also many needs. Trevor Archer is keen for us to work better together, pooling our best ideas, resources and practices, so that we might see many young people grow as disciples of Jesus.
