Dear Pastors and Children’s Leaders:
We have recently been made directors for the Apostolic National Children’s ministry and we would like to introduce ourselves to you.
We are: Carol Jenkins and Rachel Bainbridge and we have both been involved in children’s ministry for a number of years; we are currently based at the Ark in Dover.
We have some exciting things in the pipeline, including a brand new website dedicated to our National Children’s ministry. This will provide an opportunity to celebrate the amazing children’s work that is currently going on around the country, provide resources, training and ideas and inspire some new ventures within children’s ministry.
The website will be ready in late Autumn, but in the meantime we have a challenge that we would love you to pass on to your children’s leaders/workers and of course the children. The challenge is to get children motivated to use the name ‘ACKids’ to create an eye catching logo that will be used on the new website and anything related to the National Children’s ministry. They can use paper and pens or design on a computer – the chosen logo will then be converted into a digital format by a web designer for us to use.
We have attached a flyer for the logo competition and we would be really grateful if you could pass this on to your children’s leaders so they can get the children involved in this.
Carol and Rachel
Some leaders of the Apostolic Church in Europe recently met in Brussels and commenced the process of praying for an expansion of the church throughout Europe. Leaders came with an agenda for growth and to see greater influence for the Gospel in the nations of Europe, once a place where Christian thought and learning abounded, now a place with one of the lowest church participations rates in the western world.
The Apostolic Church, itself born out of revival, seeks to play its part among other churches as ‘salt and light’, winning souls to Christ and planting churches in places where there is little or no Christian presence.
The leaders and people of the Apostolic Church in the United Kingdom extend condolences and sympathy to those affected by the terror attack in London, this past weekend.
This was an act of appalling wickedness which cannot be condoned. We pray that the God of comfort will extend his love and care to all who grieve at this time and that the wounded would experience a speedy recovery.
The leaders and people of the Apostolic Church in the United Kingdom extend condolences and sympathy to those affected by the terror attack at the Manchester Arena.
Like all peace loving people, we deplore such a mindless attack intended to harm children, young people and families. We pray that the God of comfort will extend his love and care to all who grieve at this time.
