Half term Special was a great success

Posted on Wednesday, Feb 27, 2019

Thank you to everyone who got involved in our Half term event. Over 80 children aged 4-11 were fed and taught about Jesus by a great team of volunteers from 5 Churches in the Middlesbrough area. It was a great encouragement to see a lot of new faces.

Looking to the Lord

Posted on Monday, Oct 15, 2018

"Look to the LORD and his strength; seek his face always. . ." 1 Chronicles 16:11

Thank you for your continued prayers and support. It has been a busy few months and a lot has been going on so here is a long overdue update.

As business has increased the need to set time aside for prayer has increased too. It’s been great to see Supporters from the Teesside area gather together to seek the hand Lord for the work of Tots2teens and other similar childrens and church youth work in the area. Over the summer we particularly prayed for the work of United Beach Missions, Scripture Union and Child Evangelism Fellowships 5-day clubs. It has been great to meet a Christ Church Mission, and see supporters gather together in prayer. These prayer meetings are monthly, see our events for dates.

FIEC Family Day

Posted on Monday, Oct 15, 2018

It was a great privilege to be invited to run childrens activities for ages 0-15 at the FIEC Northern churches family day in Otley. We were supported by volunteers from churches in Leeds, Teesside and Birmingham. This was our second year working with these churches and was a great encouragement seeing some families returning again this year. This year we were a bit stretched as we covered 4 different age groups, but the team did a great job, We are very willing to teach at church weekends and events please get in touch.

Park Kidz

Posted on Monday, Oct 15, 2018

At the start of the summer we were panicking, We were behind where we wanted to be in our preparation for Park Kidz, and we did not have enough volunteers, but we have a great God who answers prayer. He answered and his plans were bigger than ours. The dream of Park Kidz has always been to train volunteers from churches then they set up park outreach near their home churches. This year we were joined by passionate and gifted volunteers from 3 churches in the area all keen to start park outreach near their home churches in the next few years.

Working with an Eritrean Church

Posted on Monday, Oct 15, 2018

Over the last year we have been working with an Eritrean church in central Middlesbrough. It has been a real pleasure to work with kids who love Jesus and want to learn. Several of the teenagers have joined our weekly bible study and are keen volunteers. In this picture the children are praying for the persecuted church, which of course includes the church in Eritrea which is number 4 on the open door at risk list.

Training New Volunteers

Posted on Monday, Oct 15, 2018

Along with prayer the other thing we are trying to focus on training new volunteers from various churches to reach and teach children effectively. This year so far we have ran two training weeks working towards outreach events. These were attended by new teachers and experienced leaders who see the importance of developing the skills they already have. We seek to follow Jesus example in this Jesus showed the disciples what they were to do as they sought to minister to the Jews at that time. They were to know their audience and the kind of ministry needed. He gave them a message to proclaim and a ministry to fulfil. Their primary focus was to be upon the needs of the people rather than on their own concerns and interests. Workers ought to have a clear understanding of the time, energy, and commitment needed for such important matters as lesson preparation --and should adjust their priorities to accomplish their ministry.

Another Big Change

Posted on Monday, Oct 30, 2017

Over the last year, we saw many young teenagers aged 11-15 joining both Fact and Girl Time, both of which were held fortnightly. At both groups, particularly Fact, there were serious disciplinary issues, which persisted until a point when we were forced to decide that one had to stop. In July, we chose to stop both groups, as both had grown so rapidly, and rethink how we were working. The result of one meeting/prayer time was a new group called "Fact Finders" – a weekly meeting for this age group focused on bible teaching. This group has worked well, with numbers increasing slowly and almost all young people attending a residential weekend in October. However, we are still very concerned for those who have not returned since these changes were made.
