barnbusThe Thurrock Bar’N’Bus Project is please to announce the start-up of a new team at Grays Riverside.

The team – drawn from a number of churches in the Grays area – have been trained up and are nearly ready to fulfill the Great Commission of Matthew 28:18-20 to go and make disciples.

This will be Thurrock’s fifth team in the 4 years since the project began. The new team will be going out on a Tuesday evening and will be parking in the car park near Grays Beach and Kilverts Field, just off Argent Street. Grays Police have given the new team their blessing and intend to remain committed to supporting the project.

If you or your church would like to become involved in the Grays Riverside team (or any other team), please contact Thurrock’s Bar’N’Bus teams’ co-ordinator Tim Harrold on

Meanwhile, members of the 24-7 Prayer Transit team have been prayer walking the streets of Corringham, engaging with many young people who ask for prayer, to have bibles verses read to them and call on them to be a listening ear.
