Love in Action

The Winter Warmer Appeal

My children, love must not be a matter of words or talk; it must be genuine, and show itself in action. This is how we may know that we belong to the realm of truth” (1 John 3:18-19, NEB)

We believe the greatest need in the community, other than the need for a personal relationship with Jesus Christ is to practically show the love of God to the poor and those who are the less fortunate than ourselves.

As the Lancashire Festival of Hope draws to a close and we approach the winter months, temperatures will begin to drop and many people across the region will be in need of warm clothing and other items to combat the cold weather. The Winter Warmer Appeal will allow local churches to distribute necessities to those in need in their own towns and villages through the months of October and November.

Can you and your church provide?

All items will be collected and centrally stored in Blackpool. After the Lancashire Festival of Hope comes to a close these items will be distributed across Lancashire to partnering churches as the cold weather sets in. If you are ready for a collection please call the festival office on 01253922560 to order a pick-up time.

Youth Christian Life and Witness Course

Andrew was one of these men who heard what John said and then followed Jesus. Andrew went to find his brother, Simon, and told him, “We have found the Messiah.” Then Andrew brought Simon to meet Jesus. – John 2:40-42

We are calling together the youth of Lancashire to join with us for the Youth Christian Life and Witness Course in preparation for the Festival of Hope this September! Come and join with us as we look at how to grow close to God as a follower of Jesus and how we can have confidence to Be An Andrew, tell our friends about Jesus and invite them to the Festival of Hope!

Food will be provided so make sure you come hungry!
