Fund-raising for the World Church

Many thanks to the five loyal collectors, whose boxes this year yielded the sum of £91.44. A small amount, perhaps, but when added to collections countrywide, it will help support the teachers, health workers, ministers, etc. who give their time and expertise to improve the lives of poorer people around the world.

Whereas the 'All We Can' (formerly MRDF) fund finances disaster relief and development work, the World Mission Fund pays for staff (mission partners) usually employed through the local Methodist Church network, and makes grants to help partner churches with projects.

The number of box-holders has diminished over the years as loyal collectors have died or moved away. If you would like to contribute to this work through having a collecting box, please speak to me.
