Two Rivers Mission Fordham & Eight Ash Green 3 rd – 11 th May
What is Through Faith Missions? Through Faith Mission’s first Walk Mission was along the Pennine Way in 1991 where 500 men in teams of 10 went out to where ordinary people were; teams of men going to meet people – in shopping malls, pubs, out and about, speaking about Jesus. Since then Through Faith Missions have organised many walk missions. They first came to us in 1995. 19 years later they are back again as part of the Two Rivers Mission.
Two Rivers Mission From the 3rd-11th May, All Saints Fordham and Eight Ash Green will be welcoming one of the Two Rivers Mission teams who are following the length of the rivers Colne and Stour, from source to sea, partnering with local churches along the way.
Who is coming? Roy Bradfield – Team Leader Pauline Roles Ian Oakley Martin Walker Allan Humphrey Sheila Bucknell
What will they be doing? Helping the church to get to know residents Conducting a door-to-door personal beliefs survey Taking part in school assemblies Telling how Christ has changed their lives ….
