Donation to Barnabas Fund for coronavirus efforts (LATEST UPDATE)

As Brian mentioned on Sunday 7th June, £500 pounds is being sent to Barnabas Fund towards their coronavirus help initiative.   This Biblical imperative to help fellow Christians around the world in times of real and urgent need, shows that we are authentic in our desire to follow the good example of the early church.  You are invited to join in with this at your discretion as well by giving to this good cause, supporting brothers and sisters in Christ around the world at this challenging time (see link below for more details):

BMS NEWS:  A recent prayer for racial justice originally posted on our Facebook page by Sarah N from Kwame Adzam, BMS' Overseas Team Leader for Evangelism and Discipleship. Please continue to pray for those suffering under racial oppression across the world. 

 

(I was a good friend of Kwame at Spurgeon's College from 2003-2006 (prayed a lot together) and it is so good to see this excellent man of God having such good input at this time - Dean)

♦ MAF NEWS:  On May 12, 2020, Joyce Lin was piloting an MAF aircraft that descended into Lake Sentani. She was the only person on board and did not survive. Joyce was a light reflecting Jesus, and she will be deeply missed. While we mourn the loss of our dear friend and colleague, we celebrate her life and the fact that she is now with her Savior.

MAF Uganda makes its first emergency relief flight to flood-hit Kasese District since lockdown began  (29 May 2020)

As coronavirus restrictions lift across Uganda and heavy rains ease up, MAF is finally permitted to make its first emergency disaster relief flight to the flood-hit district of Kasese. MAF Uganda’s Communications Officer - Jill Vine, brings us the latest… 

‘The day we’ve been waiting for and working towards these past two long months, has finally arrived – our first emergency flight since the restrictions and floods.

Following a crippling ten-week lockdown of grounded flights because of coronavirus, our partially submerged airstrip in Kajjansi Airfield due to major floods and a record swarm of locusts in East Africa 20-times more serious than last year, we finally have breakthrough. 

We have been granted permission to fly cargo to Kasese and bring some much welcome relief to the local people. MAF Pilot, Greg Vine, got the call and was ready in 20 minutes.’

 BEYOND: AREAS OF MINISTRY

As a church we recognise the calling to reach, minister and get involved with the wider world, outside of our immediate location.  With this aim in mind, we look to engage with and support various organisations in the UK and beyond.  We also seek to increase people's understanding of how God is at work in these areas and to broaden people's outlook in how to join God in His mission to the world.

Below are some of the main areas in this section of our church ministry, with  just some examples given of our links and interests:

♦ Wider Church Network:

Wollaston Churches together 

BUGB

♦ UK & Overseas Mission:
