Cry in the Dark
Cry in the dark is a charity who’s vision is to put Christian love and compassion into action by reaching out to children and young people of any race, creed or faith who are marginalised by poverty, sickness or disability.
They work in Romania and our church has been involved both financially and practically over the last few years by sending out members to be involved in building and outreach programmes. A team including members from our Church went to Romania during August 2014 for a week. See slideshow on Mission to Romania page. A large team including many young people went from 13th – 20th August this year.
Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF)
Based in Kent, this Christian organisation flies physical and spiritual care worldwide. Their mission is to operate light aircraft in remote places where flying is not a luxury, but a real lifeline. Every three minutes one of their planes takes off or lands somewhere in the world. On board are dedicated teams bringing medical care, supplies and Christian hope to communities struggling to survive amidst poverty, conflict or natural disaster. Flying across deserts, jungles, swamps and mountains, they reach places that might otherwise remain cut off because of impassable or non-existent roads. Our church has direct connections with the Harding family who serve from New Zealand overseeing operations through the far east.
