Many people in our city are more familiar with what the church is against, rather than what the church is for.
We are for Milton Keynes families, couples, singles, students, and children. We are for Oldbrook, Fishermead, Springfield, Eaglestone and all of the great estates in our city. We are for Milton Keynes.
The reason we are for the people in our city is because God is for them. The most famous verse in the Bible clearly states this:
“For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but will have eternal life.”
We simply want to share the news with the people in our city that God is for them, and we are too. Our desire is to create a church where you will want to invite your friends, family, and neighbours to experience this life-changing truth.
See what love can do
Our teaching series FOR was a launch pad for us corporately as a church community and individually to visibly show our city, like never before, that we are FOR them and God is FOR them.
- We will pray for our city, our estates, our families, our children, our community leaders, our teachers & schools and other churches
- We will serve our city by partnering and serving with other churches, local organizations and charities.
- We will be a voice for the needy in our city
To do this we will:
- Host 40 days of Intentional Acts of Kindness
- Launch a fund of £40,000 to invest into causes and charities working in Milton Keynes
- Trigger the use of the hashtag #formiltonkeynes on social media
“To ensure that every person in Milton Keynes knows that we are FOR them and more importantly God is FOR them.”
Intentional Acts of Kindness
The early church were famous for their acts of kindness. In fact they attracted the nickname the “Reckless Ones” as they would even endanger their own lives when caring for the sick and dying.
But kindness not only helps the recipient it helps the giver.
“Studies show that thinking about, observing or practicing a kind act stimulates that vagus nerve, which literally warms up the heart and may be closely connected to the brain’s receptor networks for oxytocin, the soothing hormone involved in maternal bonding. Kindness also triggers the reward system in our brain’s emotion regulation centre releasing dopamine, the hormone that’s associated with positive emotions and the sensation of a natural high. Intentional Kindness—which reduces stress, anxiety and depression—can literally put us, and others, at ease.”
So we are going to do ourselves and others good by intentional acts of kindness to those we meet in the normal course of our lives.
