Throughout the Bible Jesus gives a clear example that we are to serve and care for others. One of the ways we do this through LYN. This is our social action programme where we take a small group of young people into the local community to help those who have a need that we are able to meet. This could look like cutting someone's grass, painting a fence or helping someone to clear out some rubbish. This programme gives young people a brilliant opportunity to serve members of their local community during the school holiday. More specific details will be displayed below in the run up to the school holidays.

The reason behind the name:
This one is obvious: LYN stands for Love Your Neighbour. In Matthew 22:39b we are told the second greatest commandment - 'Love your neighbour as yourself.' This programme is just one way that we put this commandment into action.
