Each year the PCC decides which charities will be supported. These are chosen largely on the support they receive from members of the church. At present the charities are
Friends of the Mombasa Children
This charity has trustees amongst our congregation and provides education and support through sponsorship and donation. Groups from the church visit the schools for practical hands-on help.
Family Support Work
This charity is UK based and supports families going through difficulties.
Our mission partner in Burundi.
This parish has supported the work of the Bible Society for several years. Bible Sunday, which usually falls in October is marked by some kind of special service, which may include an outside speaker. This is usually followed by a display in the church hall of Bibles and Bible Reading materials.
Our home-groups give regularly to Bible-Society by donating their coffee money and several members are part of the Bible-a Month scheme. Bible society was featured as our chosen charity in our Christmas Card Tree appeal, two years ago. Updates of Bible Society news appear on the Missions Notice Board, in occasional articles in Seasight and on the Bible Society website.
