What is transformation?
What might transformation look like?
These two key questions have provided the basis for most of the content of this site, and all that we do.
We hope that you will see through its pages that God is transforming life for the better in many places in Bexley, and that churches, and Transform Bexley Borough which is made up of people in churches, want to be a part of it.
We believe in a God who is both powerful and compassionate, who loves his people right across the world, and to the depths of our being, and He wants to transform our lives on a daily basis.
Transform Bexley Borough: Sharing God’s love for the community by uniting churches across Bexley Borough in prayer and action, and working in partnership with others.
The first season of the Bexley Winter Night Shelter came to its end on 25th March. Many of the men who used the service have found permanent places to live. Final figures of people using the service and people on the team will be published when available.
XL-Mentoring is beginning its pilot year, mentoring teenagers in the Borough who are at risk or in need of an adult to walk alongside them. The 2day mentor training is finished on 1st April and the first mentees will be located.
We hope you like the new TBB website, which focusses more on the nature of transformation which is going on in the borough. If you wish to see something specific here, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. (Please bear in mind that information is still being loaded. The poverty and transformation page is the most complete.)
