We reach out to our neighbours in need who are isolated, and face big issues such as homelessness, addiction and unemployment.
Our work is called 'Through the Roof' after the four men who lowered a paralysed man through the roof to be healed by Jesus. Teamwork is therefore central to much of our outreach.
Our vision is to bring all kinds of people to Jesus Christ. We believe He is the one who can forgive sin, bring wholeness and restore hope. We long to see people find their purpose in life, guided by the Holy Spirit, and to become part of a local church family.
Kaspars Parups oversees this work.
We work in partnership with others to run Gospel-centred outreach projects. These involve building relationships with adults through offering a range of practical and spiritual help. This includes help to secure housing and to access training, employment or rehabilitation projects. We also offer prayer ministry and Bible study.
The Mission runs a night shelter one night a week for 15 street homeless men and women November-February. This is in partnershipwith other local churches who run the shelter on other night of the week. The work is coordinated by a local charity called GrowTH of which Ryan Lynch was a founding member and trustee.
