Spreading the Net to Emsworth & Hayling

23rd July 2019

We love this season of widening and strengthening our net! Last weekend it deepened and extended east of the city as our pop up sports camp and equipment resourced church events in Hayling Island and Emsworth.

Our team provided people and equipment to help resource a family day at St James Church in Emsworth. The idea was born out of an introduction with church warden Liz during our Pop-up Sports Camp at the Thy Kingdom Come event in June. Liz got in touch on Monday following the event:

Thank you and your team so much for the excellent activities you organised for us yesterday. The relaxed way in which Sam, Cissie, and Chris enthused our youngsters and young at hearts to join in with games and activities contributed so much to the happiness of the day. The prizes were a complete surprise and caused real delight. 

Meanwhile, our growing friendship with Oasis church in Portsmouth attracted a request for equipment to resource a special Hayling Summer Festival with other Elim churches.

Ross from Oasis collected the balls and cones which were lapped up by 25 young people as part of the event leading up to a new youth group in September. Dropping the balls and cones off back at our centre this morning, Ross told us the event was a success and they’re excited to see what God grows there from September.
