Werrington Parish Church

Our Parish supports a number of organisations through prayer, by practical help and by financial giving. Each year the Home & Overseas Mission Committee receives from the PCC 10% of the total amount of church giving to enable us to financially support mission organisations.

Effects of the Pandemic

All of our mission partners are feeling the effects of the pandemic, especially the overseas missions. Tom and Ali, the directors of the Dalitso Trust, have been unable to visit Malawi for over a year. This has put additional stress on the local team especially Chippo, the leader, as the new headquarters in Malingunde are nearing completion.

Romania

ACA has been unable to send any relief lorries to the village of Vulcan. Since Brexit, ACA is required to have a specific licence to send humanitarian aid. They have applied for this and are still awaiting confirmation of the licence before they are able to book a lorry.

This year, Operation Mobilisation is celebrating the 50th anniversary of Ship Ministry! The first vessel, Logos, was purchased on 15 October 1970; the realisation of a vision that had been several years in prayer and planning. Today’s ship, the Logos Hope, is due to dock in the UK when lockdown restrictions are eased.
