Thanet Centre of Mission
The Thanet Centre of Mission brings hope to communities in Margate, Ramsgate, Broadstairs and the surrounding villages on the east coast of Kent and is led by Peter and Lynne Bone. Across the deanery, there continues to be good collaboration between the centre of mission and other agencies including the Police, Food Link, schools, Manston Army base and community projects. Its work includes: Prayer Care, where the team visit residential care homes on a regular basis and build relationships with residents, family members, staff and management; Ignite, which seeks to build community by creating an environment where people are valued and accepted, and enjoy being with each other. It has been likened to Messy Church for adults; St Georges Ramsgate Project where we build community and show God’s love in a practical and relevant way; Men’s ministry; Thanet winter shelter; The Dream Team, which is an exciting new venture aiming to “enthuse the pews” with reaching out to our local communities in mission and evangelism; taking assemblies and visiting classrooms on a weekly rota; we are also a part of Schools+, an ecumenical group who run Christmas Unwrapped and Easter Cracked events for year 6 pupils across many different primary schools.
