“The very act of preparing and serving tea encourages conversation. The little spaces in time created by teatime rituals call out to be filled with conversation. Even the tea itself–warm and comforting–inspires a feeling of relaxation and trust that fosters shared confidences.”
– Emilie Barnes
Our desire at "Tea Time" is to disciple a generation that knows where their identity must come from, and to see transformation in and through their lives through the gospel of Christ.
Tea Time is a ministry that was born from the observation of a need for adolescent believers to have find a safe place that, due to different circumstances, they may not find in their own homes or in other contexts. This is a space where they can open their hearts with sincerity, express their doubts and real struggles, and bring them to the truth of what God thinks about issues that cause them conflict and insecurities and that possibly do not allow them to live a Christian life of strong convictions.
While we have English-style tea and snacks, we create a relaxed, trusting, and fun atmosphere where they can express what they think and believe, without fear of being judged. Once what they struggle with comes to light, then their conflicts can be confronted with God's truth and His word and bring freedom by destroying fear and changing their lifestyle.
