Our first Connecting Streams Coffee House Outreach group met last week, joined by five ladies from the inner-city. Four of them are definitely seekers in various stages of their spiritual journey.
After welcoming the ladies and introductions, we had some laughs and played an ice breaker game. Then we moved on to questions of a more spiritual nature, opening up opportunities to talk about God’s love.
All but one of our guests were open to receiving prayer for personal matters. They all expressed how much they enjoyed the time and wanted to come again the following week. On stepping outside the coffee house, one volunteer invited a curious passer-by for the coming week, who responded excitedly that she would like to come and wondered if she could bring a friend.
We envision this as a great opportunity to create a place where people of the inner city neighbourhood can come to experience community, and to hear the good news of Jesus Christ in a comfortable and caring environment.
