Did you know, to my knowledge, there is no meaningful Christian presence, chaplain or Christian Union in Blackburn College. Does that not make you sad? There’s a whole group of people at formative stages of their life not being touched by the good news of Jesus!
It’s a very tough time being a student there are a lot of voices influencing your life, lots of questions and there are big decisions to be made. Students also can be quite lonely and from my experience love to be fed.
Jesus is the Way the Truth and the Life all the answers about the world are in Him.
There are opportunities for the gospel. Arguably there is a Harvest, but the workers are very few.
Do we have the resources no!
Do we really know what we’re doing no!
I have no answers however, it’s my prayer to see an amazing student ministry at Blackburn College in fact at all colleges in Blackburn.
Wesley Hall is even right next to the college so arguably if we were Anglicans Blackburn College would be our parish!
Please pray for direction, vision and leadership in this area for church leaders
Please pray for college and university students who are learning and already part our church family
Please pray that somehow God provides a chaplain or a Christian Union at Blackburn College
Please pray for workers in the harvest field in this area as the door is wide open for us to take the land 😊
I’m planning to attend the freshers fair at Blackburn College in September this year inviting people to church, praying for people and just talking and showing the love of God.
If you’re interested and got a heart for this stuff give me a shout.
