Outreach in City Park – Bradford’s City Square is not only an iconic space for us as a new City Centre church, but it is also a space in which we are seeking to make connections with, and meet the needs of, those diverse individuals who make up the City of Bradford.
Building on our experience of outreach every Sunday afternoon, and during the Advent and Christmas season, we have developed a plan for the seasons of Lent and Easter, and during Thy Kingdom Come in the lead up to Pentecost. We will use the traditional moments of these seasons of the church’s year to offer something tangible to people in City Park, accompanied by something that meets human needs.
Although these activities are not primarily about social action, we anticipate continuing to interact with the marginalised, and to invite them to our church activities where they can receive a hot drink, something to eat, and interact with the gospel of Jesus Christ.
– as we continue to prayerfully plan, undertake preparation (including seeking permissions from Bradford City Council), and
– as we seek make the presence of Christ known in City Square.
