IY is Stepping Into the Wild...
We have a vision for this church that sees multiple Sunday services, across multiple locations, a huge community outreach arm, massive youth and young adults services meeting every week, outreaching into our local and international communities, building disciples and changing lives.
In this next season we are trusting God to lay the ground work for that vision, which is so much bigger than just the team we have in place right now. This vision is for the next generations to come and so we are refocusing our resources for now. We are setting ourselves up to focus on creating disciples, to help our youth & young adults to grow in their walks with God, to develop leadership skills, to create opportunities for them to step out and stand up in faith, to face fears and to follow God’s call on their life.
Practically what that looks like is this - we are implementing some changes:
• Sunday night services will take a break from Sunday 29th July onwards
• All Young Adults are encouraged to jump into or run a Connect group in Block 3 (Commencing 29th Aug)
• We are starting up a brand new Friday service once a month called “The Wild”. A gathering for all Youth & Young adults for a service catered especially to them. Taking place on Friday 24th Aug & 21st Sept.
• Friday nights will continue to run as usual for Youth, with the exception of “The Wild” once a month for Connect Block 3, but we will be announcing some great new plans ready to kick off for Connect Block 4, so watch this space!
In this next season we are stepping out in faith, we are planning for incredible things and we are standing, believing that God will provide and we will see His plan and purpose brought to life in the next season of IY and in this church. We are momentarily refocusing, but we know are working in God’s power not our physical limitation, that God’s vision for this church will come to fruition and that there are even bigger things to come!
Kate & Jono will be hosting dinner at their place this Thursday night, 26th July at 7PM to initiate planning for all the greatness that is to come, if God is calling you to step out in faith, if you just want to know more, if you just want to come have a sticky beak at the nitty gritty details you are welcome! Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or if you’d like to come along.
