We've launched a Good News Fund to help our workers share the good news with children and young people in new ways – can you help us?
Wayne is one of 130 dedicated workers in the SU movement who have been employed to undertake the great commission full time.
Working for Christian Connection in Schools (CCIS) – a local mission partner – Wayne knows the majority of children and young people he engages with are part of the 95% not in church.
His biggest opportunity to reach them is by being in schools.
You can find out more about the work that Wayne is already doing to reach the 95% of children and young people not in church by reading his diary.
(If your church has joined the 95 Campaign you could be eligable to apply for funding from the Good news fund yourselves.) Find out more.
I’ve built relationships with Heads, teachers and most importantly students. They know me and trust me
to share the gospel in a respectful fashion. Thank God this gives so many opportunities for those kinds of
conversations that can be life-changing.
With your support our Good News Fund will provide workers like Wayne with the support and resources they need to reach children and young people in new and innovative ways.
Here are just a couple of ways Wayne hopes to share the gospel in his local area:
‘The (Gospel) Message is in the Music’ – A Christianity awareness week hosted by the Christian rap group LZ7 and run in up to five local secondary schools. Wayne is really excited about the opportunity for local Slough and Windsor schools to host Illuminate next year, giving the potential for around four to five thousand young people to encounter Jesus and learn more about him.
A music initiative that brings together the local church, local schools and the local community. A team goes into a primary school and spends three days teaching the children pop songs with a Christian message. Wayne has already seen seven local schools take part in this and he was blown away with how this has worked and the positive vibe that it brings. He would love to see this grow across the country.
Take a look at how our regional workers across the country are sharing the good news of Jesus with children and young people.
