Who We're In Relationship With
As well as the organisations we support and the organisations we're part of we also have informal relational connections with the following:
Youth With A Mission (YWAM)
With the YWAM Harpenden base just up the road at Highfield Oval, we are enriched by having several YWAM folks as part of Network. Their broad interests and many giftings lead to all sorts of relational connections with others at Highfield Oval. Network is also privileged to be able to hire some of the YWAM buildings, and use their grounds for Network activities.
Head to Heart
Many Network folks have been on a Head to Heart retreat, some more than once! We have been friends with the retreat team for many years and have appreciated the opportunity they provide for people to have space away from their busy lives and hear from God in a new way.
Run by Vineyard Church St Albans, the FEED initiative is a local food bank to which Network folks contribute goods and supplies. It is a sad fact that such initiatives are increasingly necessary, and FEED provides valuable help in all sorts of other ways besides the provision of food.
Other local churches
We are in touch with other churches in St Albans and Harpenden, primarily through Trevor Withers regularly attending church leaders' prayer meetings and prayer breakfasts. Other Network folks also enjoy connecting with those from other churches for joint projects or simply friendships, and during the month of August when Network does not hold Sunday morning meetings our folks are encouraged to visit other churches.
