Love Thame – A Community in Action
On Saturday 20th of March Thame Churches are joining together to carry out a number of projects in the local community. The Community Action Day is being organised by Thame Churches United and signifies the launch of a week-long series of events throughout the town.
“We want to give people a real sense of community and also wanted to share some of what Easter is about demonstrate unconditional love in the community,” said Paddy Harris Pastor in Training at Cornerstone. Other activities throughout the week following the Community Action Day include free lunches at Thame Barns Centre with special question and answer sessions. On Friday there will also be supervised activities for children 0 – 4 years old.
Connecting with the youth
A ‘Youth Cafe at The Well Cafe giving the town’s teens an opportunity to chill with mates and enjoy food and drink for free; as well as games, questions and answers. “In a society that is becoming increasingly insular we want to share our faith and also want to help people to think about their lives. A question that is often raised and we are looking to help answer is “I love my life – why do I need God?”, says Paddy Harris.
The week of events will close with a Jazz Dinner at Barley hill school where there will be delicious food, great music and Dr Krish Kandiah will be speaking on ‘How to save a life – is Jesus really the answer?
