We stand in unity and prayers for Ukraine
"Heavenly Father, hear our prayers for our brothers and sisters in Ukraine. Lord we ask for peace for those who need peace, reconciliation for those who need reconciliation and comfort for all those who don't know what tomorrow will bring. Lord may your Kingdom come, your will be done. We ask for you to be with all, especially children who are suffering as the crisis in Ukraine deteriorates, and for soldiers and civilians on the front line. Lord for those who are anxious and fearful. For those who are bereaved, injured or who have lost their lives. We ask that decision makers hear your voice. Parents protecting their families, deciding whether to stay or leave. Church leaders as they support and comfort people. And Lord we ask for wise actions from global leaders, who have the power to not only start wars, but to stop them too. And Father, we cry out for an end to this crisis. For mercy, peace and truth - because you are light, hope, power and love. Amen"
The Terminus Initiative is a registered charity working in partnership to meet the needs of Lowedges, Batemoor & Jordanthorpe.
Our area is considered deprived by many measures but is rich in community. We work hard to support & empower through supported volunteering, health groups, conversation, social groups, education, mental and emotional well-being, poverty relief and more. You can read about our work on this site.
Our charitable objectives
To further such purposes as are charitable under the laws of England and Wales as the Trustees see fit from time to time, in particular but not exclusively by advancing Christian faith and witness for the benefit of the community of Lowedges by:
Developing services and activities which will help to address the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of all sections of the community
Working in partnership with local residents, voluntary and community agencies and statutory service providers to help meet the needs of the community.
What people say
"The Terminus provides an excellent model of what can be achieved in a community of high health need, deprivation and unemployment. The whole approach has been “people first” and – from the outset - working with local people rather than on them.
There has been a careful and progressive winning of hearts and minds simply by affording a courtesy of asking people what their needs are, and then listening – a vital underpinning principle of successful community development work."
