Love GL3

In our community people are going through all sorts of difficult circumstances and as a church we would love to help them. So, Love GL3 is aiming to do just that, by putting our faith into action.

Jesus said in Mark 12:29-31, ‘The Lord our God, The Lord is one, you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind, and with all your strength and you shall love your neighbour as yourself. There is no other commandment greater than these’. (NRSV)

Jesus is giving clarity to the scribes who were disputing the commandments but Jesus keeps it simple: Love God, Love others. So often we can do one or the other but can forget to do both. God wants us to not only receive the love and faith that he gives but also to give it back to him and those around us. This is why we have such a heart to see communities and neighbours changed through the love of God, we just want to keep giving back and away what God has given to us.

At St Andrew’s & St. Bartholomew’s we have a vision to reach out to the whole of the GL3 area and those people inside and outside of our church walls. We want to make a tangible and visible impact on people not so we can give ourselves a holy pat-on-the-back, but so that we can physically demonstrate the love of Christ to others. There is nothing greater than helping out someone in need. The needs are varied and complex but with as many of you on board as possible we can meet those needs together.

Love GL3 is essentially about uniting ourselves together for a common purpose: to be kind, make friends and serve
