SFJ generates relational support and networking. The steering group is in communication with the local council executives and members are often among the first to be consulted regarding borough initiatives and the first to receive news of events. Much has been achieved through our prayers and unity over the years and there are many reasons why we need one another moving forward. Leaders of member churches have an open invitation to attend any steering group meetings and to bring needs or perspectives to bear.
