Giving to charity is an essential part of being a church. We support 4 Mission Partners, donating 10% of our income to the charities collectively each year. We encourage links with the Mission Partners and pray for them regularly.
Currently our Mission Partners are:
We offer a home and work for 31 people who have experienced homelessness, providing the support and stability they need to move on with their lives. Our first shop was established 20 years ago and our community got going over 10 years ago.
Emmaus Gloucestershire has five charity shops - two in Nailsworth, one in Stroud, one in Cheltenham, and a Superstore in Gloucester.
We are a community of people who have been set free to follow God’s call in mission. Thousands of people from all walks of life are part of Church Mission Society – praying, learning and acting together in pursuit of that call.
Open Doors works in over 60 countries, supplying Bibles, training church leaders, providing practical support and emergency relief, and supporting Christians who suffer for their faith. In the UK and Ireland Open Doors works to raise awareness of global persecution, mobilizing prayer, support and action among Christians.
Tearfund is a Christian charity, called to follow Jesus wherever the need is greatest around the world. We help communities overcome the worst effects of poverty and disasters – we believe that the same people who face these issues, also have the best idea as to how they can overcome them. Tearfund works alongside local churches and other locally-based organisations in over 50 countries to help people realise their plans for a better future. In 50 years we've seen millions of lives restored and we won’t stop until poverty stops. Together there's more we can do. You can help us transform the lives of families around the world.
