COMMUNITY 2018-01-14T09:05:36+00:00

With almost two decades of community experience in both Urban and Rural contexts I have seen a broad range of ministry in community. My ethos is to work ‘with’ the community and not just serve but empowering as we share ourselves and the love of God in action. However, it is vitally important we share the good news spoken to those who are lost. Many people are looking for the missing piece in their lives, if you have questions please try this website.

“The work of the churches and of Jonny Gios, in Kendal during and after the devastating floods in December 2015 was the most real and tangible example of the church getting stuck in to help local communities when they needed it most.  Jonny seeks to help churches to engage with and support the local communities they serve.   This aspiration lies at the heart of the Christian mission to serve and make our communities better for all.”
