Some of the Ministries supported by NLCC throughout the year
Jesus commanded his disciples to share with others the good news about himself.
He said they should begin in Jerusalem and then to Judea, Samaria and to the ends of the earth. They obeyed his command and it was said by historians that the early disciples turned the world upside down with the teachings of Christ. (Christians would argue they turned it the right way up)
The command to GO has never been rescinded and we at NLCC do what we can, to share the good news of Christ through prayer and financial support to various people and projects, on a local, regional, national and international basis.
Here are just a few :-
1. The Cross Project. This is a team of young people who visit local senior schools to be mentors, take assemblies, lessons, and lunch time clubs. http://wwwcrossproject.wordpress.com/
2. Christians Against Poverty. This is a new centre opened in Wakefield in the summer of 2012 and is sponsored by a number of churches (including NLCC) in the city. C.A.P. seeks to help those in debt or who are struggling with their finances. http://capuk.org/
