In 2018, our 125th anniversary year, GB groups were set 3 challenges to Give Hope, Build Hope, and Celebrate Hope. As we transition from 2018 GB Ministries will continue our focus on Building Hope through our Build Hope Project.
We’ll be focussing on three areas:
GBM Director Jules Murdy says ‘We think that GB has a good news story to tell, a tried and tested sustainable model of reaching out to girls and young women, and a passion to help them to discover Jesus and the transformation He can bring into their lives and the lives of the local community through social action and outreach.
‘We also know that we need to raise the profile of GB among churches as a fantastic tool for mission and outreach. And give our community group leaders practical support as well as permission to focus on their relationship with God.’
The new school year saw the opening of 3 new GB groups in the Northumberland & Durham, Merseyside and Stour Valley Districts. All 3 groups have already had a great response and are enjoying welcoming girls through their doors every week.
Team Challenge will be going on at GB’s winter conference on Saturday 2 November 2019. They will then be available to purchase from the GB Support Centre from 4 November 2019.Read more
