I’ve just come back from helping at the ‘Advent Social event’ at St. Mary’s, Wollaston… it was a great event, lots of activities & crafts for the children, great refreshments, with an amazing team of people. It was a partnership with Scott Bader who provided £1800 to fund classroom equipment for the primary school in Wollaston. The school staff were extremely grateful and Scott Bader were impressed enough to want to explore future ways of working together to help the local community.
Blessing our community with no other agenda than to simply bless it, is I believe, part of the church’s mandate. It fulfils the call to Abraham to be a ‘blessing to the nations’. The people of God were always to be a people that blessed those around them… with no other agenda.
