Presbyterian Churches are some of the most passionate churches about Bible teaching.

But we don’t merely want to be hearers of the word. We want to be doers. Jericho Road is where that can begin. It’s a unifying program that gives each of us a different way to practically show Christ’s compassion in the community – either through some of the work of Presbyterian Social Services or through fresh initiatives around the streets where you live.

The inspiration, of course, is Jesus. He told that most famous of road trip stories – of the Good Samaritan. That one man, who had no great organisation behind him, but transformed someone’s broken life because he stopped to help someone in need. But Jesus stopped on Jericho Road himself. First to bring healing to Bartimaeus. Then, to bring in a social outcast called Zaccheaus.

What will and your church do on Jericho Road? Take a look around to see what inspires – then contact us so we can help you get started.

The first is ‘Body signs’ and the second is ‘Relaxation’. While the cartoon style and simplistic language still felt a little inappropriate for the demographic the program…
