Making a difference beyond our local area
We support a number of missions and charities who operate in the UK and overseas. We desire to reach out with God’s love in a number of ways outside our local area by supporting those who seek to make a practical difference in people’s lives. These are the organisations and charities with whom we are specifically involved.
In response to God’s love for the world, ROPE’s vision since 1991 has been to address the terrible effects of oppression, and to help the poor around the world, through practical and sustainable direct action, such as micro-financing of small businesses to help those in poor areas support themselves.
ROPE’s mission is to inspire compassion for the suffering of the poor around the world, converting compassion into hope and direct action through personal giving, in order to reach and change the lives of individuals who have no, or few, options for survival.
ROPE is a volunteer charity currently working in numerous countries through a network of 100 partnerships (ROPEholders), providing grass roots support for widows, orphans, refugees, the sick, the homeless and the unemployed.Click for more information
Betel of Britain is a caring, not-for-profit Christian community in the heart of the UK dedicated to restoring homeless and substance-dependent people to productive, independent lifestyles.
Together, Betel’s UK residences host up to 175 men and women. They have received numerous testimonies of lives changed, families restored, and new hope for the future.
“I fully commend the essential work carried out by Betel. We all strive to live out Gospel values in our lives. Betel achieves them through their work with people who need to be supported and valued. Restoring broken lives is going about God’s business. This is why I have no hesitation in supporting and commending the work that Betel does.” – Rt. Revd Dr. John Sentamu, Archbishop of York
The mission of Elam is to strengthen and expand the Church in the Iran Region and beyond.
Since the 1979 Islamic revolution, many Iranians have become disillusioned with religion. More Iranians are known to have become Christians in the last 25 years than during the previous 1,300 years.
The spiritual hunger of Iranians is a window of opportunity for the church to reach out. Elam seeks to support the Iranian church through encouragement, practical support and training.
WEC International is committed to seeing Jesus Christ known, loved and worshipped among the peoples who have yet to hear the gospel.
Most of these ‘remaining unreached peoples’ are also the world’s poorest and sometimes the most marginalized.
WEC’s core aim is to redress this imbalance – serving the last, first.
