An Opportunity to Transform a Child’s Life



I know many of us were inspired by Tim Morfin when he came and spoke to us about TLG, and the work they are doing to transform the lives of vulnerable children. As a result of Tim’s talk we’ve got a number of people who have signed up to become mentors, committing for a year to go into a local primary school for an hour a week to befriend a child who is struggling. 

However, we’ve got more children who schools have asked us to help than we have mentors, so I’m asking whether you might consider getting involved. If you would be able to offer an hour a week in term time over the next year then this could be for you. We’ve got a training day for mentors this Saturday (2nd June) in K2 from 9.30am – 4.30pm. If you’d like to book in then you’ll need to need to fill out a coach application form beforehand, which you can get by emailing Jo Dawson. Please also contact Jo if you have any questions or would like more information about becoming a mentor.

Thank you for taking the time to consider this. You could be involved transforming a child’s life.

Thy Kingdom Come

“Thy Kingdom come, thy will be done” (Matthew 6v10)


Then on Friday 18th May we will gather together for our  ‘Kingdom Come Night of Prayer’ from 8pm -2am at the Windsor Gospel Hall (in Dedworth, SL4 5SL). Let’s join as one church to pray for more of Gods kingdom. As a church we go deeper with a half night of prayer 3 times a year, where we encourage everyone from all our sites to come together. These are incredible times of hearing God's voice and personal refreshing. Come for the whole time or pop in at any point between 8pm -2am as we join together.

From Thursday 10th through to Sunday 20th May we are joining with Justin Welby (Archbishop of Canterbury) as he calls on churches across the country to pray ‘Thy kingdom come’. We believe when God’s kingdom comes we see salvation, righteousness, justice, peace, joy, comfort and healing. Join with thousands of others in praying to see and experience more of His kingdom on earth. Here are four ideas on how to get involved:
  • Prayer Room – we have a prayer room at our Bracknell site which you can book out to pray for an hour (or more) by yourself or with friends. Book your slot here and enjoy space and time away from distractions. There are resources to help you pray, or feel free to simply sit and ‘be’ with Jesus.
  •  Be praying for the group of people you are seeking to reach as part of our BLESS series.
  •   Social Media – we’ll be sharing verses of scripture and encouragements to pray from ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ through our social media streams. Do check those out.
  •  There are loads of resources to help you and your family or small group to pray – see the Thy Kingdom Come website.
