Amplify is a ChristCentral youth event that provides a unique ‘larger’ worship gathering space between Newday for young people to encounter and be strengthened in their faith. At the last one 13 of our young people from Gateway joined 133 others from across Yorkshire and beyond. It was a faith filled time which some great connections made and rekindled from our youth and others from across the region. Praise God for all the exciting things he is doing in our youth work!
During our Creation Sunday it was brilliant to see the gifting and personalities emerging in many of our young people as they led across each of the gatherings by planning and presenting together to share about the ECO-Gen project they are involved in.
Thank you to everyone who has contributed to our Special Offering, we have raised just over £20,000 in donations and pledges. This will allow Gateway to continue its ongoing work in the Woodhouse community, running our foodbank, community cafe, chill zone, and other social action initiatives. We are really grateful for your support. We will also be tithing £2,000 towards Christ Central International and supporting our friend Janaki from Faith in Action Ministries.
Chris and Jo spend a few days in Cyprus recently with other NFI leaders across the world for a global gathering of churches. It was a very moving time with leaders who had travelled from places of extreme persecution and suffering including some from Pakistan and Ukraine – John and Lesley had very lovingly organised a gift package for our friends from Ukraine… thank you to all those who contributed to this.
