 Called to Community?

Some Christians have been called to be a part of Edge community, giving and receiving, loving, laughing, liking and living out Christian community life. These have committed to making Edge their spiritual home, though we still are part of the wider St James community: we are distinct, but not separate. There is always room for new people to join the community, if God is calling them. Talk to Richard, Neil or other community members if you wish to explore whether Edge is a Community God is calling you to.

Called as a Co-worker?

Co-workers commit to a specific needproject or person. That commitment is limited in time and scope, e.g. weekly, monthly or annually. For example, that could be:-

  • helping with the Bus weekly or monthly
  • being part of the JAFFA club team
  • regularly visiting an individual
  • helping with admin
  •  helping practically – fixing, carrying, etc
  • take part in a discipleship small group                                                      
  • use your interest and gifting as a one off
    If you have a little time regularly or occasionally and want to share in God’s mission to Flaxley Rd people, talk to Richard or Neil. God can use all sorts of people in different ways, even if you feel you don’t have much to offer. Flaxley Road folk appreciate people who are willing to befriend and serve.

Called as a Companion?

Prayer changes hearts and lives. Without it we are wasting our time. Flaxley Rd is a spiritually tough place and the prayer of God’s people is vital to changing individual hearts, and the spiritual atmosphere in general. We need Christians like you to pray regularly for the Edge Community, for our Co-workers and for our Evangelists Richard and Neil and their families.

Newsletters and regular Prayer Updates will keep you informed. Contact Richard to receive them by email. Can you commit to praying on a certain day every week? Or for a regular activity?

Prayer and Praise for Mission is monthly, usually on the first Sunday, 7 – 8.30pm, either in the Standering Hall or Flaxley Rd Children’s Centre. Contact us for details.

Financial support is just as vital to continue the work here. Regular giving will allow Richard and Neil to continue to lead and grow our outreach, and live and minister to local people, so many of whom need God’s help so very much. Contact us to explore how you can partner with us through giving. 

We are very immensely grateful to all those individuals who financially support our work.
