OUTREACH IDEAS

FOR YOUR CHURCH IN 2020

50

 

The list is never ending, but the whole idea of this kind of work is to reach out with whatever you have to give to others- go the extra step and see the reaction of people when strangers offer that ‘unexpected gift of grace’. It might take time, as the community will expect you to want something back from them. But with time, relationships are kindled and you give love a space to grow and an opportunity for God to work.

Every community is unique and you need to know your neighbours to help them. So search for the need and tailor your outreach.  Also discuss together what skills you have in your church – get to know each other and allow people to put their talents to work in simple giving.
