BRINGING LIFE

TO COMMUNITIES…

King’s Church family and friends are involved in a wide range of different ministries that are impacting the local community of Calderdale, the region of Yorkshire, our nation and nations around the world. We believe that our faith in Jesus is lived out through: prayer and action; making a difference in society; sharing the good news of Jesus who changes people and society; demonstrating the Kingdom of God as a reality on earth as it is in heaven.

Impact Kampala

Impact Kampala was set up in partnership with Deo Musoke who is pastor of the New Redeemed Church, Kabowa. Sponsorship is given to children from some of the poorest families in the area to attend school from the start of schooling to the finish. The sponsorship has proved successful with one young person now finished a degree in motor engineering, another has set up her own business as a seamstress making and selling clothes and another one has recently begun university. This means that they are now able to support their families. It costs between £20 and £30 a month for a child to attend school as many board and so includes meals, uniform, shoes, supplies, etc. The children write update letters of thanks to sponsors. King’s is currently supporting 18 children with the youngest 8 and the oldest 19 (unlike the UK the education is a set programme which a child joins at any age, so some children don’t start school until 7 or 8, some start younger). To support our current children please contact us. For more information on the school see the New Rock Foundation School Facebook page.

Church Leaders Prayer

Once a month King’s host a morning for church leaders to gather to share news and prayer needs and spend time praying for one another. We believe there is one church in Calderdale and we need to be in unity as leaders as we seek to impact our community with the life changing message and person of Jesus.

King’s organised a Sunday morning celebration around the Tour de Yorkshire at the Broad Street complex in 2018 and as part of this commissioned Tim Woodsman (who had designed Jesus Loves Festivals) to design a banner for use at the event. The result was a flat-cap Jesus, the map of the county, the Tour de Yorkshire peloton, the sheep, the Yorkshire stone homes, the viaduct, the rolling hills – all in the Yorkshire blue and yellow! In following years the banner was used widely by church communities on the Tour de Yorkshire route and is available free of charge on the Jesus Loves Yorkshire website.
