We are committed to making a positive impact locally in Oswestry and also globally. One way we do this is by partnering with like-minded organisations.
Therefore we actively support a number of local charities in Oswestry including:
- Foodbank – working in Oswestry & the Boarders
- Oswestry Christian Bookshop
- Schools Christian Worker Project – this is part of a local Churches Together initiative to promote Christian Education in Oswestry.
We also support a number of projects and workers overseas including:
One of our members is serving with OM, and several teams and individuals have done short term mission trips with OM over the years. We also support an ongoing project in Montenegro.
One of our members is serving with YWAM.
One of our members is serving with OMF.
A Little bit of Hope
This is a small charity with the vision of nurturing hope in the Butaleja District of Uganda by enabling people to overcome the hurdles that prevent them reaching their full potential. We support several of their current projects, including school farms, apprenticeships and provision of clean water and latrines. Some of our church leaders and members have also visited to see the work and the positive effect ALBOH is having on people’s lives.
They provide Christian TV by and for the people of the Middle East and North Africa, broadcasting in Arabic, Turkish and Farsi to the 500 million people of the region.
This is a Christian charity helping to transform the lives of families around the world.
Wycliffe Bible Translators
In 2005 the Church made a commitment to partner with the Banyole people of Uganda as they translated the New Testament into Lunyole, their mother tongue. This involved prayer, giving, and growing relationships between our church and the staff and translation committee running the project in Uganda. Over the years many church members visited to support, encourage and also train Ugandan pastors, and in 2017 some of us joined in the celebrations as the completed New Testament was launched. Since then we continue to support the work of translating the Old Testament.
We pray for and stand with Christians living under religious persecution.
