As a church we are committed to make and mature disciples of Jesus Christ for the glory of God (Matthew 28:19-20). As part of that we support gospel work at home and abroad.
We want to encourage individual members of the Church family to see themselves as active supporters of missionaries and to involve themselves through prayer, communication and other practical means. To enable this we have a Mission Group who:
- promote communication with the church family as widely as possible
- play a part in developing and maintaining support for present and future missionary work
Below is a list of the people and organisations we are currently supporting. All Christians are called to serve in mission either as a goer or a sender. We can get involved by praying for those we support, keeping in touch, funding the work and participating in mission.
Sarah works with OMF in Asia. OMF International is a Christian mission that serves the church and brings the gospel to some 12 countries in East Asia and has a pioneering ministry in others. We provide Christians with opportunities to share the love of Christ with East Asians worldwide. We also support Tim Jenkins, in Cambridge, an Area Mobiliser for this organisation.
John Huntingdon’s Charity is a Sawston based charity providing advice and help with benefits, debt and housing issues. They give grants to individuals and groups that work in our community and can provide temporary housing for those in our community with the most need. You can help directly by donating food at Budgens, or volunteering.
We believe that Christ-centred education is a powerful force for the transformation of individuals and societies.
TeachBeyond connects teachers, parents, and support staff with exciting educational opportunities around the world. God is using our members, their skills, and contexts to bring the light and healing of the Gospel to all—children, adults, leaders, and ministry workers alike.
The Besom is a Christian charity that provides a bridge between those who want to give time, money, things or skills and those who are in need in the community. It ensures that what is given is used effectively. The service it provides is free. The local branch of the Besom in Cambridge works predominantly with recipients referred to us through social services. Giving includes gardening and decorating projects, baby bundles, bedding starter packs, children’s clothes, Christmas hampers, and quality second hand furniture.
