Each year at Stroat Church, we put 10% of our donations aside, so that we can support missions that are close to our heart. Some we have supported for years, and others change each year.
During 2019 we are supporting:
Chepstow & District Christians Against Poverty Debt Centre.
They support people struggling with the burden of debt, the centre started in 2014, and has helped over 60 families. For more information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or if you need help with debt call 0800 328 0006. www.capuk.org
Mercy Ships is a faith-based international development organisation that deploys hospital ships to some of the poorest countries in the world, delivering vital, free healthcare to people in desperate need. James Townsend from Stroat Church is spending nine months onboard the ship. www.mercyships.org.uk
Light of Hope (India)
The Light of Hope Mission in India is headed up by Pappy Daniel who came to know the Lord as his personal saviour at the age of 17. After graduating from high school, he attended a teacher’s training programme and became a public school teacher in India.
As Daniel walked through the villages, sometimes with his family, they saw the abject poverty of the village children. It was often easy to count the children ribs and it was impossible to not notice their hyper-extended bellies. www.lightofhopeindia.com
Together for Youth
They are passionate about helping children and young people engage with the gospel and the local church.
They want to help churches reach out to both the children and young people attending their church and the children and young people in their communities. They would also like to assist the church in evangelising, teaching and discipling children and young people. Offering practical assistance to support and develop volunteers who will run, manage and initiate children’s and youth work from their own church. https://sites.google.com/site/togetherforyouth2012/home?authuser=0
