Events in December 2016 :: Visit of the Teen Challenge Team
On Sunday, 4 December 2016,we were visited by the Team from Ilford where Teen Challenge run a 29 bed rehabilitation
centre for men seeking to be set free from addiction to drugs and alcohol.
David Tarr is the Outreach Director who himself, some years ago, had been addicted to heroin and alcohol for 25 years.
He went through the programme at the Teen Challenge centre and now testifies, “the power of Jesus set me free.” Now he is
involved in helping others in “a place where broken lives are mended as these men come to faith in the Lord Jesus Christ.”
David brought with him two men, John and Colin, who have both led difficult lives, plagued by alcohol and drug addiction or
abuse. They have known some of the problems that such addiction can bring, whether it be violence, family break-up or other
tragedies which, themselves, can drive people further down the pathway of addiction. You can listen to their testimonies which
will be on the audio section of our website by next week. They are both still on the programme. Both can now share what
Jesus has done in their lives so far.
