On Sunday 14th September at 6.30pm our guest speaker will be John Hardwick, a very talented speaker and performer and his title will be
‘PASSING ON THE BATON – REACHING THE NEXT GENERATION’.
In a relay race if one runner decides not to bother then the race is over for that team of runners. In a similar way, we as Christians have a responsibility to ‘pass on the baton’ and tell the next generation about God’s love for them.
King David said in Psalm 71: 18 (NIV) “Even when I am old and gray, do not forsake me, my God, till I declare your power to the next generation, your mighty acts to all who are to come.”‘Telling the Next Generation’ has been John Hardwick’s mission for more than 25 years. He juggles and sings and tells stories for the King!
Not only is he involved in many different outreach activities himself but in the early 1990’s he led the Saltmine Children’s team, then he trained a children’s team in Lebanon, he is also the Co-founder of the GenR8 school teams that reach around 40,000 children in Cambridge and further afield. He writes resources books which have not only been used in churches across the UK but have been translated and used in other lands. He also produces CD’s and DVD’s of songs and stories.
