Firm Foundations UK is a Christian organisation, born out of 2 men’s visions from God. Lewis Haynes (Chairman) has been involved in ‘Recovery’ and Food Programmes over the last 8 years. God gave him the vision to take ‘Recovery’ to the people and to help those struggling to fulfil ‘Recovery’ in their current environment. John Mercer (Treasurer) previously had the God-given task of building a ‘safe haven’ for the vulnerable. When that task was completed, God told him ‘Don’t sit on your hands – build me a hostel’. Celebrate Recovery and Prodigal House are the two arms of Firm Foundations UK. We currently run 3 Celebrate Recovery courses in the community and will be ‘launching’ Prodigal House, our 12 month Residential Discipleship Course on 19th September, taking our first residents in October. The Celebrate Recovery courses are based on the Beatitudes and encourage us to look at the hurts, habits and hang-ups we carry from our past, together with fears and worries for our future. We call these the ‘bad fruit’ in our lives. We then invite Jesus to heal the roots of these ‘bad fruits’, so that they can ‘drop off’. We can then live in the freedom that Jesus offers, becoming effective disciples. Prodigal House will be a place of safety where people coming out of rehabilitation can grow in Christ, learn life and work skills and be equipped for re-entering society, living as an asset to the community and God’s Kingdom.
We hope to be linked-in with churches who ‘catch’ this God-given vision. Could this be you?
