“Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9
June Project is a week-long project where students from church congregations all over Leeds come together to serve the community of Hyde Park through practical service, free events and evangelism.
Through evangelism, partnering with local organisations, a Family Fun Day and putting on pop-up evening events, the June Project teams seek to share the love, goodness and gospel of Jesus. We spend time each morning receiving from God, and the afternoons freely giving from that before returning to worship each evening. Everything we do on the June Project feeds into an evangelistic lifestyle that will build the local church.
As one church leader said: “The work June Project does to bless and reach the area of Hyde Park in a week would take our church members months.”
June Project in Leeds began in 2013 and was a huge success, with students and other adults from a dozen or so church congregations joining together in mission. 2017 will be our fifth year running June Project and we are so excited!
We have a number of teams that will go out to bless Hyde Park in a range of practical ways, and also through evangelising. At the end of the week we'll host a massive “Fun Day” with food, fun and friendships enjoyed by hundreds of residents and the team! Throughout the week we will put on evening events for the team and the community.
Praise God that as the project runs year on year it gains recognition and legitimacy in the wider community; this means we are able to build deeper relationships and be sustainable. Give thanks that we have gathered a great team to run the project for this year and they bring new skills and giftings.
Please pray for a couple of long standing team members who have stepped down this year and that other people will come forwards to fill the gap.
