…The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn, and provide for those who grieve in Zion— to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of joy instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of his splendour…
Boomerang serves to reach those in need, who are lost or broken in both a practical and spiritual way. The department hosts various outreach programmes detailed below with an aim of befriending, loving and walking with those in need.
We signpost to various organisations and aim to transform lives through God’s blessing.
As well as working with outside agencies, doing one to one house visits and supporting individuals in need throughout the week the Boomerang Project also has a number of regular events which happen weekly. (See the calendar below for exact dates and locations)
