Our Church Council distribute 10% of our annual income to several Christian charitable causes at a local, national and international level, as well as supporting them in prayer. They currently include:
An Essex based Christian centre providing water-based activities for children and youth. One of our church members is also a regular volunteer.
A Chelmsford charity that supports students and schools with the aim of communicating the truth about Christianity to children and young people.
A charity that trains and inspires churches and communities, inside and outside of prison, to support the restoration of those affected by incarceration. This overlaps with our involvement in the CAP money course where there is a monthly meeting in the prison.
BCT is a Christian charity for children at risk, in Africa and beyond. They equip project partners to reach out to children at risk from poverty, HIV and abuse in their communities.
Open Doors supports persecuted Christians globally with Bibles, Christian materials, training, livelihood skills and advocacy, so that they know they are not forgotten and can stand strong to serve their communities.
MAF reaches isolated communities by means of light aircraft, delivering supplies, providing transport for missionaries & medical staff and evacuating the serious ill or injured. We have link missionaries with MAF: Fraser and Tracy Norbury who work in Papua New Guinea which is the location of MAF International’s largest operation in the world. Fraser is head of finance there and Tracy is head of staff training.
In addition to our church tithe we financially support various charities throughout the year such as The Children Society (Christingle), Samaritans Purse (shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child) and a local and international harvest appeals.
