Mission of the month
As a church we support a number of Christian mission organisations that do important work in serving God locally, nationally and internationally.
We support them all by praying for one each month during our church services.
During the month of August we will be focusing on World in Need.
World In Need was founded in 1991 and works with all who need practical help, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity or gender. They currently work in 11 countries in Africa, Asia and the Middle East. These are Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, Thailand, the Philippines, Jordan, DR Congo, Ethiopia, Kenya, Uganda and Sierra Leone.
They work to support people in a variety of ways, depending on what they need most, by:
sponsoring individual children and families, to ensure their wellbeing and give them a good start in life.
supporting schools and children’s homes, ensuring children grow up safe, well cared for and able to fulfil their true potential
building wells to give whole communities access to fresh, clean water,
empowering woman through co-operatives, education and apprenticeships, so they may support themselves and their families and lift themselves out of poverty,
building and supporting churches so that people can come to know Christ where they previously had no opportunity to do so.
