In these unprecedented times it is so important as a ministry to continue to support our loved ones and close friends. It is also as important to support our communities. Whether it be your local skate shop, homeless shelter, food bank or local schools, as a nationwide church we can make a difference. Whether this be through consistent prayer, volunteering or other means, it all counts. And as a collective we can as a church, provide some influential support and encouragement in times where it is lacking.
Over these next few months our main ask from all of us here at Christian Skaters UK is for prayer. Prayer into large scale events such as Creationfest but also potentially impacted local events put on in smaller communities. Prayer into the many many lives impacted because of Covid-19 and prayer into skate ministries across the globe. The events, outreach and ministry play a huge role in the lives of individuals across the country. Please also pray into the individuals/groups heading up Christian Surfers UK, Creationfest, Transend, New Wine and the many more events based organisations that due to the uncertainty provided by Covid-19 locally and globally is putting real pressure on the ability to survive, influence and impact. Finally, please pray into the lives of all of the many individuals that these festivals and events provide such an impact in their faith journey, support network and fellowship. Pray that other opportunities come to fruition and to provide continued encouragement into their lives.
We will be circulating newsletters every 2 months so the next one will be due out in May.
But for now I will leave you with the below:
Isiah 43:1-2 + 2 Corinthians 4:17-18
“But now, this is what the LORD says— When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.”
“For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal”
