Anglican Church reaches out to community

From Barbados-

The Anglican Church today unveiled a community outreach initiative, in response to worrying social ills.

Speaking today at the Christ the King Anglican Church, Rock Dundo, St Michael, spokesman for the Intentional Ministry Initiative Reverend Von Watson told reporters that Warrens had been chosen for the pilot programme since it was seen as the fastest growing area of the island.

“We are saying the Anglican Church is here for you. It is really about meeting the needs of people, rather than merely offering religious services,” Watson said, without giving an official launch date for the programme which will take place at Massy Warrens.

Also briefing reporters, Anglican Bishop of Barbados and Archbishop of the West Indies Dr John Holder said it was hoped that coming out of the initiative, there will be a greater reflection of Christian living.
