Eden Westwood Update
This last month has been extremely exciting for the church. We have held a series of evenings, centred around Eden – why Firwood Church is now involved in this and what it will mean to each member of the fellowship.
Matt Wilson (The Message) spoke about the vision and purpose of Eden and the implications for our church. It was great to see so many of the fellowship excited after Matt spoke and a number of people came forward wanting to get involved in Eden Westwood.
We also had leaders of several Eden projects around the Greater Manchester area sharing their experiences and the differing way they had addressed the needs in the areas they were working.
Andy Hawthorne (The Message) spoke about the effectiveness of Eden workers living on the streets on the estate and the way in which the whole church had a part to play in this work.
Each of the evenings dealt with a different aspect of what was involved in a church based Eden Project. Each offered different insights and led the fellowship to consider their part in this work.
For Team Members, a number of people have expressed and interest in Eden Westwood, some of whom are from our own church. Please pray that the Lord would guide them.
For the Team Leader, this is a pivotal role in the project and we hope to have this person in place by early 2009. Please pray that the Lord would guide and direct them.
