THANK YOU for your generosity last year and to our beautiful regular-giving partners. As ever, the money raised in our offering has helped Essential Christian to deliver Spring Harvest with as much accessibility as possible. The bursary fund has been used this year to bring people here who couldn’t be here otherwise, for inspiration, refreshment and encouragement. In addition, it continues to help us navigate these changing times and innovate for the future. This year we have launched two free services; My Spring Harvest, with new resources every month, and Essential Christian Songs to equip for worship.
Our event theme last year was worship. Our offering tithe went to an organisation that was born out of the worship industry in the UK. Justice and Mercy International have used nearly £7000 that we sent them to fund Jungle Church Mission Trips across the Amazon region, helping local people to reach those deep in the jungle who haven’t yet heard about Jesus. They have sent out two trips already where indigenous congregations are taking the gospel to the ends of the earth. The money raised by our children and young people, as we requested, is being used to stock up new libraries for the children of the river communities, helping them to receive an education without involving dangerous boat trips.
Thank you for all you have given.
