We want to support not only our local community but communities across the world. It’s part of Jesus’ call to ‘Go and make disciples of all nations…’

We’ve partnered with various organisations to help fulfil that call

  • To Kenya With Love is a registered charity sponsoring children in Kenya, Africa and also have built and run a nursery and primary school in the slum area of Manyatta.
  • Genesis School & Key to life Church – a church and schools project also in the Manyatta district of Kisumu which is now part of the Compassion project.
  • Central African Missions (CAM) is a UK Christian charity supporting a group of Pentecostal/ Charismatic missionaries in Central Africa since 1915.
  • Compassion UK Many of our members sponsor a child in a developing nation through this amazing charity. Money is sent each month to your child’s family and letters can be exchanged either by post or online.
  • Wycliffe Bible Translators exists to enable all peoples to engage with the Bible in a language that speaks to their heart.  We believe the Bible is the inspired word of God and that it is for all people everywhere speaking all languages. Currently, however, at least 1.5 billion people do not have the full Bible available in their first language.
  • Open Doors is an international ministry serving persecuted Christians and churches worldwide.

Here is a little more info about some of these organisations and partners

To Kenya With Love

TKWL is a Christian charity whose purpose is to provide a better future for children living in Kisumu, Kenya’s third largest city. We do this by providing an education, which otherwise they would not be able to afford, thus giving them a better chance of gaining employment and eliminating poverty.

Our aim is to give our children an excellent, well-balanced, education within the school day, giving them time to play, be with their families and to be children. TKWL has its own nursery and primary school in the slum area of Manyatta. Most sponsored children attend our school, but some children are placed into government-run schools when it is too far for them to attend Simon Newberry School.

As well as providing an excellent academic education, we also strive to ensure that the children are taught, encouraged and provided for in all aspects of their lives, including their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual health. As part of this the children are provided with a snack of porridge in the morning and a nutritious meal each lunchtime.

For many children, this is their only meal of the day. Simon Newberry School is not-profit making and needs external funding each month to continue. This is done through fundraising and sponsorship of children most in need, and this means that more than half of the pupils are sponsored. After leaving primary school, sponsored children continue to be supported through secondary or vocational training.

Our sponsors support children by providing them with the essentials needed for their education or vocational training. Sponsorship funds are used to help buy school uniforms, shoes, school books and equipment, pay various school fees and cover medical expenses when they are unwell.

We have an excellent team working within the school and surrounding areas. Chris Wheat is the missions coordinator for TKWL who oversees the staff, administrators and social workers.

Genesis School

A project that was started by Key to Life Church who we have had connections for quite a number of years, Genesis school is located in the same area of Manyatta, Kisumu as the TKWL project.

Recently the project has come under the umbrella of Compassion (see below) who are helping to provide additional funding and sponsorship of children. Building work is continuing to replace the corrugated iron classrooms which were prone to flooding to brick built buildings to give the children a better atmosphere in which to learn.

Compassion

One of the world’s leading child development and child advocacy organisations, Compassion work with local churches to link children living in poverty with a sponsor. The money we donated give children access to education, health checks and the care of a local church-based Compassion project. There’s no quick fix to global poverty, but through these programmes, children’s lives are being changed. As a church we are able through Compassion to impact families and local communities.
