Street Angels

Helping the vulnerable on weekend nights

Street Angels
As Street Angels we're out on the streets late on a weekend night to be there for people when we're needed, particularly for those who are vulnerable or are in difficulty.

Download and read our Impact Report here.

Wearing our distinctive blue jackets we are visible presence on the streets helping to improve the safety of those who are using our bars, restaurants, theatres and public transport.

Through our work, we've seen a reduction in street crime & antisocial behaviour, and an increase in effective use of the emergency services.

As the Coronavirus lockdown continues in the UK we're back out on the streets with support from the police and local council, following Government guidelines.

Youth Angels

Providing young people with positive, alternative life choices

Youth Angels
A weekly youth club on a Friday evening at The Summit, often seeing 40 – 50 teenagers engaged in socialising, craft, games and other activities. We also have teams out on the streets of Scarborough, engaging young people and offering positive, alternative life choices for those who need that help.

We dare to dream that we can make a positive difference in the lives of young people. Youth Angels aim to reduce the numbers of young people who may be at risk of involvement in alcohol and drug abuse, risky behaviour as well as crime and anti-social behaviour. We aim to be part of making our town a safe and welcoming environment for all generations, including reducing levels of perceived fear. We aim to foster community - not a sense of us and them, but a sense of 'this is our town' that is cross generational.

While we are in lockdown we're doing loads of activities and games on Discord, as well as hanging out, competitions, livestreams and more! It's a real hub of activity so check it out! We also have teams out on the streets on a Friday night, following social distancing guidelines.

This is an action packed time where you get to choose what you would like to do from the activities on offer.

Parents and Carers are welcome to bring their children and stay and play with them, you might prefer to relax in the Hub Coffee Lounge, pop back home or spend time playing with your toddlers in the Crèche. You are welcome to bring pre-school children to Friday Club, but they must remain under your supervision at all times.

While we are in lockdown we're posting videos on our Facebook page, full of fun crafts and activities! Make sure to check it out!

Community Angels

Connecting the community to services & groups in Scarborough

Community Angels
Community Angels has grown out of the existing Angels’ work, the Street Angels and the Youth Angels. We are a church led team, who started in early 2014, who have undergone training and are eager to build on that same vision. Our desire and focus is to make a positive difference in our town by helping provide support and encouragement to many people, including the vulnerable, in our local community.

As with all our Angels initiatives we work in close partnership with the local community, North Yorkshire Police, Scarborough Borough Council and other local charities and agencies (such as the Rainbow Centre for example). If you work with a local organisation that could benefit from the use of our building, please do get in touch.

While we are in lockdown we are doing our best to make sure everyone in our community is getting all the help they need. Please do get in touch if you or someone you know may be able to use our services.

The Crèche

The Crèche
At The Summit on St Nicholas Street, The Crèche offers lots of toys to play with for under 5s. It has plenty of space to park buggies and some comfy leather sofas for adults, too! Food and drinks served from The Hub can be brought to you in The Crèche, so you can settle in and let the young ones enjoy themselves.

The Crèche is unsupervised by staff at The Summit, so visitors are responsible for their own children. The Crèche is also open during Sunday morning and Thursday evening meetings.

Safe Haven
Part of the Street Angels' work in Scarborough, Safe Haven offers a place to escape from the bustle and noise on a weekend night.

Providing bottles of water, tea & coffee, as well as a place to sit down and be safe, Safe Haven has made a tangible difference to those who find themselves in need on a night out in Scarborough.

Situated at The Summit on St Nicholas Street, it's nestled beween two popular bars and is an invaluable addition to the area.

While we are in lockdown Safe Haven will be shut. When lockdown ends, we'll be ready!

The Summit

THIS Online

Our annual national event in May

THIS Online
23 - 26 May 2020

Tell the next generation… THIS is God, our God forever and ever.
Psalm 48:13-14 (NRSV)

Instead of our regular THIS conference, we hosted a series of online livestreams, videos and Q&A on our YouTube channel, Light2North. You can watch all of the videos online for free on our YouTube page!

The World-Wide Covid-19 Pandemic that we are living through, will go into the history books. These are significant times - so more than ever we need times of being in God’s presence together.

The church that does this will spring from Lockdown into a vital new significance in our communities. It is a time of RESET. Not a wipe clean factory reset, but the church clearing our the rubbish to be free to be God’s Church without the mire and treacle. God’s wastes nothing and uses our journey, He does not discard any of our walk with Him.

THIS Online is significant because we are in our households. Households, homes and the rediscovery of ministry based in them is an essential part of THIS RESET. This weekend is not a compromise event - it is a God event, planned and destined by Him for such a time as THIS!

This may be a World-Wide Pandemic - but we look forward to a world-wide move of God that springs from the homes of renewed and re-empowered believers!

In 2021, we will have THIS21 on May 21 - 23, with Paul & Sue Manwaring.

House Church

Small groups, coming together for fellowship & meeting God

We believe that church is not a Sunday activity, but being a Christian is a lifestyle that must be lived out - and is best lived out in community. Our House Church groups meet regularly at peoples' homes, praying together, sharing life and building each other up in Christ.

While we are in lockdown, we have a WhatsApp broadcast group that we use only for important events and announcements. Our house churches are meeting online on Zoom, and small group gatherings outdoors following social distancing guidelines.

Know Jesus

The man, the message and his invitation to you

His story is perhaps the most famous on earth, but who exactly was this water-walking carpenter who claimed to be the Christ?

In the three years that Jesus spent travelling around the towns and villages of Israel He spoke about everything from life, love, faith and forgiveness to hypocrisy, paying taxes and helping people on the margins of society. But of all the extraordinary claims of Jesus recorded in the New Testament there's one that stands apart and epitomised the message He carried: “I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to God except through Me.”

When Jesus called His first disciples - a group of everyday, hardworking men and women - they were stepping out on an adventure of a lifetime and beyond. And His invitation is still open today.

If you want to know more and get a free book, follow the link below to read about Jesus; the man, the message, and his invitation to you.

Discover

Church in the 21st century is about discovering community - but how do you join in the fun? We invite you to Discover!

We run regular Discover courses and we have local House Churches meeting during the week. We run Alpha Courses for those exploring what it means to be a Christian and the Freedom in Christ course which helps all Christians from those who are brand new to those who been Christians for a long time.

That might feel a bit overwhelming, or maybe you just can't wait to get involved! If you'd like to find out more about being part of this community of people on our journey of learning and discovery come and have a chat with us. During the week give a call on 01723 374516 or pop in and just ask in The Hub. After meetings please feel welcome to chat to one of the Host Team or to the Church leaders.

Get Involved

Things are moving fast here in Yorkshire and many opportunities are available for you to be discipled, trained and equipped as part of being involved in ministry. If you are wanting to be an intern or you are a current church member or perhaps you are thinking of moving to the Scarborough region to join the work that God is growing here, click below for some examples of how that can happen at this church, or get in touch in person or by email.

Dare to Dream…

Our vision and passion as a church

Something that you'll hear a lot at Kingdom Faith Yorkshire is, 'Dare to Dream.' It summarises our vision and our passion to be the church that Jesus is building now. The Word says that God's thoughts about us are more numerous than the grains of sand on every beach in the world. That's a lot of thoughts! Even if I just hear a small fraction of them I'll discover just how much God Dares to Dream about me.

So yes, we Dare to Dream, about the excitement and adventure God that has set before us, of being a church where people are loved, accepted and restored, where the blind see, the deaf hear and the lonely find friendship. We Dare to Dream of a church that is growing week by week as people are impacted by the Truth, experience the power of the Holy Spirit and see miracles happening.

We see a church that equips, trains and disciples people and is full of God's love, where the tangible presence of God is known and experienced. We see a church that is part of transforming society and that brings honour and glory to Jesus Christ. And do you know what? We also Dare to Dream of a church that is just great fun to be part of!

I am His Masterpiece

What does God think about you?

At Kingdom Faith, we believe that God created every person as a masterpiece, full of beauty and purpose. Every one of us has slipped away from that purpose, and as Christians we admit that and turn our lives back to Jesus, who has made a way for us to come back into the fullness of life God wants for us.

For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. — Ephesians 2:10, NLT

When you confess to God the mistakes you've made and offer your life to Him, you are welcomed as a father welcomes a long-lost son, and you are given a new life. His love for you is overwhelming and indescribable. God has made you for a purpose, and He is immensely proud of the work he's done in you! Will you live in the calling He has made for you?

At Kingdom Faith, we help each other in this adventure every day. If you want to know more, why not come to The Summit on a Sunday morning or Thursday evening, or pop into The Hub during the week?
