Kidz Klub Leeds is not just the staff on the ground, the volunteers in and around the city and the kids that we work alongside. Kidz Klub is YOU! Since we started back in 2000 we have been spurred on by so many churches, individuals, companies and communities. We thank you.
Over 6 weeks we are publishing “18 ways to give to Leeds children”. We have ideas for individuals, churches, corporates and groups of friends to give in all sorts of ways: money, time, prayers, conversations, expertise, baking and much more. It’s our birthday AND it’s Christmas… Can you join us with #18waystogive and #bethedifference for the children of Leeds?
This week: CHEER US ON!
We are working alongside the most deprived communities in the city and we are often walk with families and kids facing difficult and devastating circumstances. This is hard. The reality is that it can sometimes feel like people don’t know or don’t care about the poverty in Leeds or they aren’t aware of movements like Kidz Klub who are present in the thick of it.
BUT, we know there are crowds of you out there who do know, who do care, who are talking, who pray regularly, who share our news, who celebrate with us, who encourage us in conversation and who support us. We thank you… your prayers, thoughts, words and encouragement really go a long way in keeping us motivated.
So this week we are asking you to give by CHEERING US ON! What does this look like.
- Share our news on social media (Twitter, facebook and instagram)– so the work of Kidz Klub can reach more people and we can gather more support (we also love the ‘likes’ and comments too).
- Pray for us. We send newsletters, update the website and put news on social media so there are always available prayer points. Please let us know you are praying – this will encourage us greatly!
- Invite us to your church. We can come and share with your church community, lead a service, share our ministry, inspire people and gather more support. Just get in touch.
So, that’s our top 3, but there are LOADS of other ways that you can cheer us on: ask a staff member or volunteer about Kidz Klub and give them some encouragement, text us to tell us we are doing a great job, tell us you are thinking of us and chat about us with your friends, families and neighbours.
Finally, just a reminder that this year Kidz Klub Leeds has restructured to reach more families, go deeper with children and transform more lives. Let’s talk numbers… It will cost us an additional £60,000 per year to reach 1,000 children across the city and help transform their life chances, bring them the hope of Jesus and work alongside their families and communities.
£60,000 is only £5 per month, per child we help. We need 1,000 people to give £5 per month.
