We oversee and organise the Langney Shopping Centre Chaplaincy Team. Every Tuesday you can find volunteers in high-vis jackets welcoming people for prayer or discussion, reaching out to shop keepers and customers alike. This ministry started in 2008 and is a regular feature in the shopping centre. We have had many testimonies of healings and people experiencing the presence of God after talking and praying with the team. We aim to be a welcoming, friendly, ‘Jesus- representation’ in the shopping centre. Volunteer chaplains are from a number of churches across the town and we welcome new people on to the team with the backing and recommendation of their church leader.
The first Sunday of each month is a gospel service followed by lunch. Our joy is to see people who don’t know Jesus be in an environment where He is worshipped and adored. The short service is all age and has a craft activity for the children. Lunch is simple and shared together as a family. If you would like to come along and have dietary requirements, please let us know and we will make sure we cater for you.
MakeLunch is a nationwide project of Transforming Lives for Good. TLG is a national charity seeking to empower churches to reach out to their communities. (www.tlg.org.uk)
We started in 2018 and each school holiday we welcome families from the local area. We always have a craft or activity for the children, a chance for parents and carers to have a cuppa and sit down and then we all eat a hot healthy nutritious lunch together, followed by a yummy pudding! Whilst primarily offering help to those families whose children receive free school meals in term time, we will feed any families who come to us.
