From 23 February to 3 March a team of 8 students from Capernwary College assisted us with an outreach programme. During the 10 days the students:

  • Led and spoke at our church services and also ran services at Birstall Community Church and Newlands Methodist Church.

  • Delivered 16 performances of the Life of Christ Bible Exhibition at Seven Hill, Victoria, Churwell, Newlands,  Asquith, Gildersome, Queenswood and Birstall primary schools assisted by Allan Peel from the Open Air Mission.
  • Visited various Coffee Mornings around the town to talk to older people and delivered a Pensioners Lunch in the Labour Rooms. The team also led a Farewell Service and tea at Jubilee Court.
