Exciting Christian Youth event coming up in September....

There is a dynamic and inspiring youth event coming up in September which we would like to share with you!

REBOOT

For the seventh year running, REBOOT is coming to London and this year they’ll be at Central Hall, Westminster. Last September, over 1,350 teenagers packed out the venue and we’re praying for at least as many this year – and hoping that number might include you and the young people in your congregation.

Please share news of this event with your churches, youth groups and communities!

You can download the event flyer and also a link to download the promo videos here, in case you’re interested to show them at your church. If you would like to receive hard copies of the flyer, please send an email to media@zachariastrust.org indicating the address and number of flyers you'd like and these will be mailed to you.

Open letter in response to the Sri Lankan attacks

Ministry of HCLG.png

We have all been shocked and saddened by the horrific terror attacks which took place on Easter Sunday in Colombo. Please find a letter to Sri Lankan communities in Britain from the Secretary of State for Housing, Communities and Local Government, the Rt Hon James Brokenshire MP.

Please do pass it on, where appropriate, and encourage others to share it.

Meeting together....

The Free Church Education Committee met at the end of March to pray for and plan the next steps in our education strategy. We were hosted, with great welcome, at the Westhill Endowment and had an edifying time of discussion and working together. Our opening devotions, led by our Committee Chair, Julie Grove, were based on Faith Exhibit paintings by Rev Elizabeth Gray-King. You can find out more about hiring these works and other faith based pieces HERE.
