As a church we are committed to the support of mission both in the UK and overseas both in terms of finance and prayer. We set aside 10% of our total income to support them financially.
We support a number of agencies on a regular monthly basis and also emergency situations as they arise, such as the Tsunami appeal. In addition we make appeals for particular organisations throughout the year.
Speakers from the organisations come to share their experience with us to help us to get a flavour of what their life is like and what their needs are. Newsletters that we receive from individuals that we support are given to all the congregation to help us to be specific in our prayer.

- Calling all Knitters!
South Africa was hit by severe flooding last week and a charity called “knit a square” is supplying blankets. If you can knit they are crying out for squares, they can be really simple ones as long as they are 8″ x 8″ (44 stitches on size 4mm/old size 8 and double knitting wool) no need to sew them together. Thanks Denise Sayles (if you need a pattern there are some at the Info Point).
