Missionary Support

Mission Support

Mission is so important within the local church, because as Christians we are commanded by God to share the gospel. The LORD JESUS said "Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel" Mark 16:15. God calls different people to do this, we call them missionaries. In many ways we are all missionaries in our own lives but some are called to send their whole lives serving God in other places.

As a local Church we help support the following missions:

Caley's (New Tribes Mission)

Allan and Mandy Caley went to West Africa in 1988 to live among the Palake people. Firstly, they had to learn an unwritten languge and eventually write it down with  help (translator) before translating parts of the Bible for chronological teaching. Thanks 

In 2000, along with two other missionary couples they were finally able to present the gospel in the Palaka language to the people. The next two years were spent teaching fifty believers approximately before war broke out.

The Caley's with their three children had to leave in 2003 and serve with NTM in Florida before being transferred to NTM, North Cotes, Lincs in 2008. Amazingly, the church grew to 200 believers, now 250+.

Many books of the Bible have now been translated and by January 2020 the whole of the New Testament was completed. The language team; Johnsons in Sefonaike and Caley's have facilitated this. In addition the Caley’s are involved with Missionary Orientation.

The Palaka people continue to be thrilled to receive God’s word in their own language and were able to build a church with the help of two UK teams (completed end of May 17) and go out to neighbouring villages to preach the Gospel.

Morning Star Children's Centre South Africa

The mission was born January 2000, established by Joan Adams, out of a deep Christian compassion for the plight of this nation as the HIV/AIDS pandemic escalated! Initially 8 children were admitted in January 2000, and today 140 children are cared for daily, with a further 600+ on the register, who attend schools in the surrounding townships. The children are clothed, school uniforms provided, 2 meals given daily, also their guardians/grandmothers are helped with food parcels/clothing. Most mothers have died with Aids. Although the primary school children have Aids, they thrive because of good food, and a loving Christian environment.

Roger Carswell

Roger  has been an evangelist for approximately 34 years and he has travelled to many countries including India, USA, Isreal, Spain, Switzerland, Holland, as well as most parts of the UK.
