LOVING OUR NEIGHBOURS

GOD HAS NOT CHECKED OUT AND NEITHER SHOULD WE

As a church we want to help each other to be a blessing in a time of crisis to our neighbours and our community here in Reigate.  Keep coming back to this page for inspiration as well as practical ideas for how you can be involved in seeing God change lives.

COMMUNITY SUPPORT
VOLUNTEER

If you're healthy and at low-risk, you can sign up here to become a Community Support Volunteer and help others in Reigate & Banstead

Jesus tells us  that the greatest commandment is  to, ‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and to Love your neighbour as yourself.’ In this time of national crisis we want to be people who take the word of God and put it into action!

HERE ARE A FEW WAYS YOU COULD MAKE A DIFFERENCE

GIFTS OF GRACE

If you can, why not leave a small gift on your neighbours’ doorstep, a chocolate bar, a plant, newspaper or magazine. Add a note to this, maybe a prayer, let your neighbours know you care for them and are praying for them.

ECHOES OF ENCOURAGEMENT

When we do leave our homes to shop or exercise, make every effort to encourage each person that you met. A smile, a wave, a hello…these can change a person’s day (especially in our current climate)

INTERCESSION POWERS MISSION

CS Lewis writes, ‘”I pray because I cant help myself…I pray because I am helpless.” We may feel helpless to help others BUT we must press into God in prayer for our neighbours and those we know in the community. Keep Praying!!

CALM NON-ANXIOUS PRESENCE

Many of us share homes with others who are not yet Christians. It could be that at this time your family is your mission field.
