Call for church to reach youth


Share post:

A CITY CHURCH is being encouraged to reach out to the people around it so as to make a positive impact on their lives.
The call is coming from City of Bridgetown Member of Parliament, Lieutenant Colonel Jeffrey Bostic, during his address at a service to start the 60th anniversary celebrations of the First Baptist Church on Constitution Road, St Michael last Sunday.
“I want to encourage you to take the church outside the four walls . . . . I implore you to get out there and assist in transforming the lives of some of these young people in Bridgetown and the communities around this church.”  
Bostic said weed whackers and all the things “we tend to throw at our youth are not enough. There is a lot of room for God”.
Pastor of the church, Paul Leacock, said that the Baptist faith should recognise the work of its Sarah Esterbrook, much in the same way Methodists celebrated the contribution of National Hero Sarah Ann Gill.
“We too, with dignity, pride and respect, pay homage to the woman who brought the gospel to this country,” he added.
A plaque in honour of late leader, Reverend Lincoln Crichlow, was also unveiled by his widow Dr Jennifer Crichlow, daughter Jordyn Crichlow and son Dr Greg Crichlow.
The service was preceded by marches from Bay Street and  Tudor Street.
