LEAF is committed to the spiritual transformation of the New Forest and encouraging church growth and unity. Our aims are as follows:
LEAF is involved in facilitating joint ventures and sharing resources and ideas. Our annual “Standing Stronger Together” events aim to help equip Christians of all ages to be effective “whole of life” disciples. We are also actively working to support youth and children’s leaders within the churches of the New Forest.
We liaise with church leaders in order to keep open lines of communication, and to provide encouragement and support. Our newsletter, calendar and website are designed to improve communication and interaction between churches. Events such as the annual Vision evening and the annual Celebration bring people together from churches across the area and we aim to involve a wide cross-section of people in the running of LEAF.
We are aiming to produce high quality promotional material and relevant information to the media and to liaise with local community leaders. We would like to be a united voice on issues that affect the New Forest and we are encouraging churches to get involved in projects which benefit the community.
We arrange a regular monthly prayer time for church leaders and have encouraged the formation of a prayer team drawn from the churches in the area. This team not only commits to praying for churches and their leaders, but is working to encourage the prayer life of each church.
If you have a need or a prayer request please contact us and let the prayer team know so that we can pray for you. Simply fill out the Prayer Request form on the Prayer Tab at the top of the page.
