Southend-on-Sea Borough Council has asked the churches in the borough to make their congregations aware of the dire need for new loving foster families. Nationally the number of children taken into care has increased by 25% over the last decade and so there are many vulnerable children in need of good people who will care for them in their time of need.
There are two evening events planned for those who might be interested to find out more – with absolutely no expectations/commitment at this stage. Local Christian foster parents will be there to share their experiences, Southend Council will also be there to explain the need and answer questions of process, and the Christian Charity “Home for Good”, that support Christian foster families, will also participate in the evenings. We would love to see you there.
16th May 2019, 7.30pm – Southend Christian Fellowship, 600 Southchurch Road, Southend-on-Sea SS1 2PT
20th May 2019, 7.30pm – Leigh Road Baptist Church, Marguerite Drive, Leigh-on-Sea SS9 1NN
Both events fall in “Foster Care Fortnight”
What God the Father considers to be pure and genuine religion is this: to take care of orphans and widows in their suffering.
