Rural Ministries:

We have links to Rural Ministries, a charity created originally to keep open rural Churches and Chapels that would otherwise have closed. They are a non-denominational organisation. In 1964 they acquired the Chapel and appointed successive Pastors to maintain and expand the work of God in the area of Stratford St. Mary. In 2015 the Chapel, the adjoining Manse and Grounds were transferred to Trustees appointed by our Congregation and the Chapel is now autonomous and self-funding. However, we retain our valued link to Rural Ministries. Rural ministries


Moldova: Eastern Europe:

Vale Marie in Moldova For the last 15 years we have financially and prayerfully supported a Church in the village of Valea Mare in Moldova, Eastern Europe. We have over this period provided funds to support their Pastor as well as building a Kindergarten, Medical Centre and other projects in the village. We have also maintained the Church building and created a much needed modern toilet block in the Grounds. We continue to provide financial support to Pastor Tudor Antoniuc and his Family operating in the vicinity of the Church.

Pakistan: Asia

Around 5 years ago we provided the funds required to create and maintain 2 Church Plants in Punjab Pakistan. One Church was established in Green Town in the city of Lahore and the other near the City of Shekhupura. We continue to support these Churches in prayer and giving. Both Churches have experienced huge growth spiritually and numerically and have reported the Salvation and Baptism of many new converts. Punjab Pakistan
