Good News

We have had much to celebrate over recent weeks as we have had two young people become Christians through our lunchtime clubs and another young person from a lunchtime club who has attended a local church for the first time and even brought her parents along. We have also seen several of the young people we connect with take the decision to be baptised at the churches they attend, with another one, whose first introduction to Christianity was also through one of the lunchtime clubs, hoping to be baptised in the near future!

Please  pray for those young people who have made a commitment for the first time and for us to have wisdom as we disciple them and encourage them to join their local churches. Please also pray for those that have been baptised and for their friends who witnessed their baptisms.

New Football Cage

Integrate YFC are now the owners of a football cage

 

The football cage is a cage to play football in! A great way to engage young people in a fast moving game, giving great opportunities for starting conversations while they stand and watch. It is stored and transported in a trailer, and can be erected in many places.

Thanks to Volunteers & Supporters...

Volunteers at IYFC Brunch There was a great turn out to our recent volunteers and supporters brunch.  We spent time sharing what we were doing at each of the groups and praying for the work in various areas.

It was great to have around 13 churches represented, especially all the church leaders that came.

Oh... and we ate lots of bacon butties, pain au chocolat and chocolate twists!
