Compassion UK 

Compassion is an international Christian child development and child advocacy ministry. Partnering with local churches, it is committed to the spiritual, economic, social and physical development of children living in extreme poverty in 26 countries, enabling them to become responsible, fulfilled Christian adults.  

As a church we currently sponsor four children through Compassion UK.

Jacob who lives in Seeta, Uganda, Erick who lives in Kenya, Africa, Rosa who lives in Equador, South America and Akhara who lives in Thailand.

 

Samaritans Purse

We collect and package shoebox Christmas gifts for deprived children around the world as part of operation Christmas Child.  This year we hope to send over 200 shoe boxes to needy children.

Methodist Overseas Missons

We collect loose change in personal collection boxes from adults and children in JMA, (Junior mission for all), to support Overseas missions.  Children are presented with certificates and badges and regular magazines to encourage them.  Please contact Sarah Mills for more information.

Tithes

We tithe 10% of the Sunday offerings of the church to other good local, National and International causes.  In the past year we have provided support for:

  • Richard Welch - Richard was born and raised in Gornal but was challenged by the tremendous needs of Albania resulting in him making a three-week visit with members of his local church and eventually becoming a full time missionary there. Click to download Richard's Latest Newsletter.
