As a church, we support Compassion International, which is a Christian ministry that supports whole communities by caring for the welfare of children. The programme is about nurturing every aspect of a child's development - physical, health, emotional, spiritual, intellectual.
Each Compassion project is overseen by a Church community, and we know that the money we send will go towards the individual child that we support. However, it is not just, or even mainly about the money. We are encouraged to get to know the children that we sponsor, and to pray for them.
As a church we have a link with Boa Semente in Brazil, and sponsor two children. Two members of the congregation take the responsibility to maintain the contact through letters.
There are also a number of individuals who support children, some of them in the same Boa Semente community, and others in different places around the world.
