Last weekend the Eden Falinge team (Rochdale) came together with the church to bring some good cheer and good cakes to the local community. They created a small gift pack with a cake or biscuit, a prayer card, a Christmas card and information on what their partner church are doing over Christmas.
They went door to door knocking and chatting with many local people, great conversations were had and lots of the residents were really pleased to see the church in their community.
One gentleman was so pleased with the gift that he gave the team some biscuits too for their hard work! Others were invited inside for a cuppa and many of the team got to pray with local residents. Team leader James Moss said ‘It was such a good opportunity to just love the community and to make ourselves present and available for the community’.
