Impact Youth Ministry exist to share the way of Jesus with our friends and family, to show them His love and to grow passionate followers of God who seek to worship Him with their whole lives.
Do you know the worship song, ‘if faith can move the mountains, let the mountains move’? If you’ve hung around with me at all recently, you will have undoubtedly heard me singing it (out of tune! Obviously!) under my breath.
What are your mountains? What are the things that stand tall in front of you? The things that seem insurmountable? I mentioned briefly in the evening service yesterday how this verse has meant a lot to my recently: ‘We live by faith, not by sight.’ (2 Cor 5:7) Even where I can’t see a way forward, I’m choosing to believe that with God all things are possible! (Matt 19.26).
Do you believe it, too? It’s time for some mountains to get a chuffing MOVE ON!
Tons of love,
A few things to draw your attention to:

This week we’re back all together at YPF. Hopefully most people’s exams are now finished and we’re looking forward to catching up. We’re going to spend the evening chatting and hanging out, while at the same time serving refugees by helping to sort through donated clothes, amongst other things. It’s a special and simple way of ministering to Jesus’ heart because he really loves these people. See you there!!
When: 7.30 – 9.30pm
YPF are a big, fun group of young people who love God. We meet in 4 life groups every other week in order to go deeper with God in friendship with one another. If you’re not sure which group you are in or where to go, give Fiona a ring on: 07879 814216.
Rock Solid – Sunday 25th of June
Rock Solid is on this week and we’ll be a new series looking through our church mission statement. This week we’ll be looking at “Show it” – why is that in our church statement? What does it mean? How can we help the church and be a part of it?
Where: In Church
Rock Solid normally meet Sunday mornings during the 10.30 service. Rock Solid is designed to be fun, to nurture friendships and to help young people own their faith and grow in it.
Church & Café Fusion – Sunday 25th of June
