Part of our Newhaven Church's mission is reaching out and serving the community; therefore it is good to have a presence in our local schools, showing that the church cares and reflects the love of Jesus. The SU Groups in two of our local schools (Trinity PS & Victoria PS) are supported, prayed and cared for by our church. We invite the children to any of our church outreach events, special services, holiday clubs and Back to School with God service. SU weekends also give an opportunity for church and SU Group children to go away together.
It's a privilege to have the opportunity to run SU Groups in our community, to meet parents and children where they are and to have a church to invite them all to, which hopefully demonstrates that it's not only the school children but also the whole family that we care about.
