4All - update Jul12

Monday, 16 July, 2012

4All ran successfully for five years but as the children involved got older, many of them became more involved with projects at neighbouring churches. Sally Gaze reports back on what has happened since.

The little village of Swainsthorpe went through a period of having very few younger children and 4All ceased for a period. However, in the period it ran, it had helped the congregation at the village of Swainsthorpe to grow a little in numbers and greatly in hope.

4All - crowdGradually the church has got more involved in running events for the whole village. In 2012, the old church building - which is the only public building in the village - is being reordered to make it suitable for wider community use. When the work is done there are hopes to re-launch a monthly all age service with a new team and a mission project with an environmental focus.

The group of mums who led 4All have led two Alpha courses as a team and they still meet and pray together. This year, their focus has been praying for blessing on the Tas Valley area - including blessing on this very special Swainsthorpe Community Project.
