We have heard that our ‘Tweenagers‘ have arrived safely at Matumaini School. We thank God for travelling mercies and wish them a very good nights sleep!! Here is an excerpt from their ‘Plans for the week’ leaflet.
The Chatham ‘Tweenagers’ set off this evening on their long awaited trip to visit the Matumaini School in Tanzania. Overnight flights to Dar Es Salaam via Dubai will probably not dampen the excitement of a first visit to the African continent. Continue reading
We are bringing you details of the coming Sunday one day earlier than usual as we have a special item for tomorrow!
Much of our ministry on Sunday featured the young people (Tweenagers) who will be travelling to Matumaini School in Tanzania later in the week.
Our ‘Tweenagers’ have smashed their target of raising £8200 for Matumaini School in Tanzania. Next week five of them, together with a number of adults to supervise, will be making the long journey to meet the children and staff of the school.

Friends, the school examination period is upon us. Please would you add to your prayer list all our young people undertaking exams over the next few months. To help focus your mind here are just some of the names and exams people are taking.
Our weekend had much to interest us and began on Saturday evening with the last major fundraising event of the ‘Tweenagers’ project which has been ongoing since early 2016. The Kent Police Male Voice Choir and the South London Fellowship Band of The Salvation Army gave a fine concert which was well attended. The target of £8200 will doubtless be smashed when the all the sums are done but, for now, we will let you read all about it on the ‘Tweenagers’ own website (click here).
Some of you will have lots of links and fruitful involvement in schools, others may not have the resources, opportunities or people to work with schools. Whatever your current situation, prayer is an important and powerful way to support the schools in your community.
You may be aware that this year Pray for Schools Fortnight is 7th -21st May.
We have produced a resource of prayer ideas to help you focus on praying for schools in any of your meetings or groups during the fortnight.
We hope that these resources are helpful in supporting local schools with prayer. For any other information about connecting with schools please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
