Ignite launched in Guernsey in November 2012 and aims to reach out to people in the local community and in particular those who may feel marginalised, lost or lonely.
So what does Ignite look like?
Ignite predominately presents the Christian message through friendship and meeting people where they are. It is about unconditional acceptance and love – that as Christ loved us so we love others.
As a worshiping community it is something quite different from how we may traditionally see church. An Ignite evening would typically involve food, lots of laughter, a range of short interactive activities such as quizzes, games, discussions and film clips around a biblical theme.
To enable us to build this new worshiping community, Bev Hervé and Paul Chambers have been appointed as ‘Ignite Enablers’. Their roles involve establishing a presence in the community, getting to know people, building relationships of trust and offering hope and opportunities to follow Christ to people who may not normally come to church.
Ignite meets on a Tuesday evening in St Johns Church Hall at 7pm.
All are welcome to join us for coffee, food, games and conversation.
(During this period of ‘Lockdown’ we are unable to meet but Bev and Paul are happy to chat to people on the phone, if people are feeling alone or would just like to hear a friendly voice).
