Default What types of outreach ministry does your Church offer?

Hi Folks,

I hope you are all well

Its always good to see the way other Churches are reaching out and meeting the needs of the local community.

I understand we all live in different areas and our communities have different needs but it would be nice to have some new ideas we could take back to our churches and see if they could be implemented.

I'll start by saying a couple

1) Feeding the homeless - We take food out onto the streets, at night, and give it to people that are sleeping rough. Things like soup and bread.

2) Furniture Station - People donate old furniture items (tables, chairs, sofas etc) to the church, these are then distributed (with the help of the local council) to those that are on benefits and have just moved into their first home.

I am keen for our church to get involved in as many areas as possible doing God's work.

Thanks in advance for your ideas.

James

GOD BLESS

That's all great and we should but is your church giving the gospel as they are helping the community?

Sorry i didn't make myself clearer. I consider 'doing God's work' ministering to others needs and sharing God's word. :-)
