In the absence of a church gathering this Sunday, we took the opportunity to instead bring some hope directly to people’s doorstep.
A team of volunteers put together a collection of leafets containing offers of assistance, words of encouragement from school children, letters detailing our church response, take-away menu from a local cafe, and a beautiful plant to bring some sunshine into people’s homes.
Our outreach team reported back that these deliveries provided a great deal of encouragement to many people in these sometimes rather anxious times. It was wonderful to be part of this practical effort, and to see the church working creatively to communicate God’s love and concern across our community not just in words but in meaningful actions.
