Youth Ministry – Tamil Church in London
Our Vision is to see young people are being won for Christ, that they might know Gods saving power in their lives as the Word of God “For you have been my hope, Sovereign LORD, my confidence since my youth.” Psalm 71:5 NIV
In today’s ever increasingly secular society, the rising generation faces a whole new set of challenges and temptations. More and more young people are starting out on life with little or no Christian influence. For many, God has effectively been removed from existence and therefore few have any thought of eternity or what happens to their soul. They live for ‘today’ and do what it right in their own eyes. This is an extremely dangerous place to be in as the Bible reminds us in Mark 8:36 (What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, yet forfeit their soul?– ‘For what shall it profit a man, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?’)
Due to factors such as avid and widespread materialism and celebrity culture, young people are faced with so much pressure to look, act and behave in a certain way. Often this can lead to feelings of failure, inadequacy and depression as they search for fulfillment in things of the world.
We go out to these young people in the sure knowledge that God loves them and wants to save them from their sin. We know this because of what the Bible says in Romans 5:8 (But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.)
We rejoice that there is indeed HOPE for our young people and pray earnestly that the Holy Spirit will soften their hearts so that they may come to know Him as Lord and Saviour for both time and eternity.
