Mission Prayer

This week we are praying for SAT-7

SAT-7 broadcast God's word to countries in the Middle East and North Africa in places where it is difficult to meet and pray as Christians. Their programming provides hope and comfort to Christians in these places where they would otherwise be isolated by their faith.

We have updated the site to allow you to choose your own donation amount. If you are a regular giver or wish to make a donation you can do so online through our website. It's safe, secure and is another way of reducing the risk of spreading contamination through the use of cash or cheques. As ever, you are not obliged to give but if it is your wish to, this route is open to you.
