Harvest Appeal launches

From God's goodness, could your church share Harvest with those on Glasgow's streets?

In the gospel of John, as Jesus is finishing His conversation with the Samaritan woman, He says to His disciples, “I tell you, open your eyes and look at the fields! They are ripe for harvest.” John 4v35. 

Glasgow City Mission’s Harvest Appeal this year focuses on our Street Outreach work. In an urban rather than a rural setting, it’s the streets around our city centre building that are ripe for harvest. 

Look at the fields - Michelle's story

Michelle is one such lady our team supports. After difficult family issues and a violent relationship, Michelle has spent years on Glasgow’s streets. “It makes you feel the lowest of the low” she remarks. Our team regularly spends time with her, persistently caring and loving her the way Jesus would – Michelle says this makes a real difference. 

We know we could do more – the fields are ripe – but we need your church’s help to do so. 

Would your church consider holding a Harvest offering this year in order that our Street Outreach team can double the amount of time we spend on the streets, providing practical Christian care in Jesus’ name?
