Supporting the wider community:
When people think of churches doing 'outreach work' in the wider community, you would be forgiven for thinking that this involves merely standing on a street corner proclaiming the Gospel! While of course evangelism in such formats may be a part of every christians' life, spreading the Good News of Jesus Christ is as much about helping our neighbours in need.
In 2012 we are supporting a major project (under the auspices of Christian Aid) in Sierra Leone. As well as committing a proportion of our income to this we will be raising funds through other activities.
We will also be supporting the Emmaus project which enables those who are no longer homeless but not yet ready to take on the responsibilities of fulltime employment and mortgages or rental accommodation. You can find out more at http://www.emmausnorwich.org/
