Action Zones 

It's a little bit different this month 

UNITE logo 2015After this, the Lord chose 72 others and sent them out in pairs ahead of Him into every town and place where He planned to go. He said to them, “There are a great many people to harvest, but there are only a few workers. So pray to God, who owns the harvest, that He will send more workers to help gather His harvest. Go now, but listen! I am sending you out like sheep among wolves. Don’t carry a purse, a bag or sandals, and don’t waste time talking with people on the road” (Luke 10 v 1-4)

Update:  28/04/2016

 

Last night (Wednesday) at the Youth Cafe we had some interesting questions and comments from the kids who were at the cafe, most of who will be at Spring Weekend this weekend so please also pray for the Holy Spirit to do His work in their hearts this weekend. We are taking 10 young people; 7 from the cafe with no Christian background at all; 2 from a church in the town and 1 friend of theirs

Ali was privileged to pray in the school with two other Christian teachers this week and will continue to meet every fortnight. Please continue to pray for the school at this time of transition

In Stand the young men are valuing the input in their lives as one lost his grandfather recently and was grateful to have studied Revelation at Stand, so he knows where his granddad is now

Mentoring seems to be going well; the young people are noticing a difference in their resilience, the ways they deal with difficult situations and their perspectives on situations

The trustees had the privilege of meeting with the young people of Emmanuel Church in Great Yarmouth, to hear of the exciting and challenging mission trip to South Africa they're undertaking in August, to grow in confidence and dependence on God, bringing those gifts back to Great Yarmouth to spread the Gospel here too. We were grateful to God that from our Tithe Fund we were able to support them financially as well as prayerfully

Thank you so much as always for your support. In addition to the usual weekly commitments at the school, Youth Café, and Stand in May, we will also have these events (God willing):
 

The postponed assembly, re-telling the story of the Prodigal Son, being pioneered by the Year 8s in Room 6 is happening on Tuesday 3rd May

Riding Lights theatre company is visiting the Youth Cafe on Wednesday 18th May (thanks to Jemma at the Minster) to do some drama workshops. They're also going into the high school and college to present the gospel through drama there

During the Easter school holidays, the Youth Cafe was closed but we took the opportunity to pray in the room we use; mainly to listen to what God is saying for the future of the cafe. The volunteers who were present felt that God drew them to the four passages above, one of which was Luke 10 v 1-4: Jesus is sending out a large group of volunteers to speak of Him. He says the harvest is plentiful but the labourers are few. So what should we do in that situation? If these verses accurately describe our situation, then it seems that we should ask the Lord of the harvest to send more labourers into His harvest field. Maybe we need to pray until this happens

Therefore, our prayer diary for May will be a little different as we hope that you will walk with us in obedience to Him as we pray volunteers in, for the harvest

We have listed the existing volunteers, whether they are used occasionally or every week; please pray for one every day this month but also please pray each day for new volunteers to be obedient to God's prompting and commit to this amazing privilege of having meaningful relationships with the young people of Gt Yarmouth in order to show them Jesus

Current volunteers:

Claire, Claire, Nigel, Nigel, Sus, John, Sadie, Katie, Donna, Grace, Adam, Joe, Livvy, Andy, Anna, Suzanne, Angel


Thank you for the time you give to supporting the work in Great Yarmouth through your prayers
