Compassion UK

For a number of years our Church has supported

Compassion. We now have two sponsor children. Rakibul in

Bangladesh is in contact with our ‘IT’ group, and Indry from

Indonesia is in touch with Kingdom Kidz. Two members of

our Church are advocates for Compassion.

 

 

Christian Aid

We regularly support Christian Aid through activities

such as a sponsored slim and donation envelopes.

Spare change, old glasses and spent printer cartridges are also collected all year round in support of Christian Aid and other charities supporting work overseas. There’s more info about Christian Aid Week 2015 on our facebook page.

World Mission

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28: 19-20.

 

We seek to fulfil Jesus Great Commission not just in our community, but around the world. As such our Church generously supports many global organisations and projects:

 

 

Malawi

One of our elders served in the Embengweni Hospital in Malawi and the annual sponsored walk in June raised money to pay for refurbishment of the baby unit. The refurbished unit is now open and its improved facilities are having a very beneficial effect on mums and babies. In addition very many baby jumpers and hats knitted by the congregation were sent. A member of the Youth Group returned from Malawi on a gap year and put us in touch with the minister of a Church she had attended. A No Bible Sunday service informed the congregation and the annual “Alternative Christmas Card Appeal” was used to request donations so that Bibles in the Chichewa language could be purchased for the church. Over £800 plus gift aid was raised: sufficient to buy more than 100 Bibles. Spare communion glasses from our Church have also been sent to Malawi.

Blythswood Care Shoebox appeal

For many years members of our Church have responded generously to an appeal for shoeboxes, filled with essential items to be sent to Eastern Europe, India and Pakistan. The number of boxes increases steadily each year as awareness grows. This project now includes involvement from four local primary schools who increased further the number of boxes we have been able to send.
