Celebrating what God has done


It was amazing to celebrate our 10th birthday party at the Belfrey Hall on Sunday and reflect on all that God has done over the past decade. Around 75 of our supporters enjoyed afternoon tea and birthday cake as we looked back to the start of the Besom in York in 2007.

We launched at the same venue in February that year with the vision to help the church in York to give. That vision remains the same today and we pray it will do for years to come.

Neil Hulse, the chairman of our trustees, reminded us of the motivation behind the Besom. He said: “It’s giving because we’ve experienced the love of Jesus.”

Neil highlighted what a blessing it is to give, as Paul states in Acts 20 v 35.
He added: “At the heart of the Besom in York is prayer. God is an attentive listener.”

The Besom in York’s co-ordinator, Rob Ainsworth, shared some of his highlights such as how the giving of local churches over a year period had blessed a mum with eight children. Since we started, thousands of recipients have been blessed through the church giving and this has been a real reminder of God’s heart for the poor.

As Paul writes in Ephesians 3 v 18, we have seen the full width, length, height and depth of God’s love in action.
