When Jesus returned to Heaven- He told his followers what they should do- it’s for us as well!
Today’s Story:Matthew 28:16-20
16 The eleven disciples went to the hill in Galilee where Jesus had told them to go. 17 When they saw him, they worshiped him, even though some of them doubted. 18 Jesus drew near and said to them, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth. 19 Go, then, to all peoples everywhere and make them my disciples: baptize them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, 20 and teach them to obey everything I have commanded you. And I will be with you always, to the end of the age.”
We might not be able to leave our homes to go very far at the moment, but we can support God’s work all over the world. We are supporting to projects in faraway places.
One is the IBBA girls’ School in South Sudan- https://www.friendsofibba.org/
And another is Pastor Albert who runs a small church in Djembering in Senegal. He’s a friend of Keith at our church. We are helping him have the things at his church that we have in ours- projectors, amplifiers and speakers so that people can join in the services

We’re still supporting our community here in Stoke Aldermoor through our foodbank,
and soon we hope to have all the other groups back- GLU Stay and Play and Youth Café. When we know what’s happening, we’ll let you know!
