MISSION AND HISTORY
Impact is a Christian youth project seeking to provide contacts, groups and events for our local area of Tyne Valley Parish (TVP); from North Middleton to Pathhead to Fala... and everywhere in between. TVP Impact opened it's first project in Pathhead back in 2019, and a second one in North Middleton in 2020. One of Impact's aims is to identify local needs within the young people and youth of our communities through establishing this community-based project to address those needs. Each area's Impact group will be run a little differently whilst part of one TVP Impact organisation. All have the same objective, to provide a safe place for young people to meet, have fun and nurture positive social group interactions... and have more fun... :-) ...and each group has a voluntary time and space to explore the Bible and the Good News of Jesus Christ with an opportunity to ask questions, get to know the Bible, or seek help on any challenge they may be facing.
Our main TVP vision is to share the Good News of our Lord Jesus Christ with all in our community, whether they've been here for generations or just visiting friends or family. We do this in a Christ-like fashion, in love, and never force our beliefs on anyone. The name Impact was inspired by the impact of events on the life of Zacchaeus (Luke 19v1-10). Jesus radically changed the life of Zacchaeus and had a huge impact not only on how Zacchaeus saw life, but also on the community in which he lived and worked. We believe Jesus can and still does radically impact lives today, so we share this good news, praying that God would continue to bring light into people's lives and reveal that
16 For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. 17 For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. John 3:16-17
