Mission at All Saints & St. Luke's
As a church family we have special relationships with three different Christian organisations - local and international - we call these our "Mission Partners". By working alongside our "Mission Partners" we hope to:
serve the needy
spread the Gospel
fight injustice in the world
Our "Mission Partners" are:
Send a Cow
An organisation in Moldova
Balsam Family Project
Each organisation has a long-term connection within our church family - who have opportunities to give both their money and time to further the organisations' aims. More information about each organisation can be found below.
Send a Cow
Established more than 20 years ago by a group of Christian farmers, Send a Cow works in various African countries. It is extremely effective at helping African families work their way out of poverty through gifts of livestock and training in sustainable agriculture. Its "pass it on" principle empowers those it helps to help others.

We have now been supporting a project, based in Kenya for over a year. You can read more here, or watch the videos below.
Through our relationship with "our missionaries" on the ground we can help to show the practical love of God in a country that was Communist until very recently. Our giving means that we can directly help some of the poorest people in Europe to survive and find hope.
Balsam is a local charity helping to strengthen and support vulnerable and isolated families. It helps to provide the guidance and support that can break the cycle of family breakdown and deprivation.
