..we have a heart to serve the city
One of the many groups serving the City is the ‘helps ministry’ in Life Church Bath.
Their aim is to encourage and empower this local church to express the love of Christ in good works. So far this includes a regular litter pick in Twerton, working in a community garden, clearing a garden for a vulnerable family, and providing drivers and muscle to deliver food to families and help in the warehouse of Mercy in Action.
They are looking forward to the coming year when they will be able to help other families and work with other churches across the city to meet local needs.
We thank God for the good relationships between the churches in the city, and pray that this relationship will be stronger and closer because of the lockdowns and reduction in activity.
We pray that across the city and surrounding villages, members of our churches will be able to help vulnerable families, and join together in other community initiatives.
Father we thank you that you see your church in Bath as a light to this city. In this next 12 months please let your light shine through our good works. May it shine brightly so that many folk see the light of the gospel, the good news about Jesus.
Please keep reminding us Father there is only ‘one church in Bath,’ and that we your servants will work together, harmoniously conveying your love to this hungry and thirsty world.
Mike Smith, Life Church, Bath
Matthew 5 v 14-15
You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house.
