R is for Resources

Or rather the lack of them. 

Jesus told his disciples in Luke 10:2 that: "The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few".

In our experience it's not just the workers but resources in general that are scarce and this is particularly the case for The Gathering. There is so much we want to do in terms of serving and reaching out to the community but we are really hampered by the lack of space in our venue, and constrained by the lack of people available to serve.

Jesus did go on to tell his disciples to "Ask the Lord of the harvest, therefore, to send out workers into his harvest field", and this is a constant prayer of ours. Not because we wish to be a big shiny church but because our hearts are for the community and we long to see the community uplifted and especially the children given a fair crack at achieving their dreams in life.

Please stand with us in prayer for the necessary resources.
