We recognise that we are a part of the global church. We want to support and partner with our brothers and sisters in other countries to see lives and communities transformed by the love of Jesus. Here are some of the churches and projects we are Involved with ...
Jeevan Asha in India
Each month we support Jeevan Asha, or 'Life of Hope', which brings hope to slum and impoverished children in Thane, Mumbai and Orissa. A basic education can help prepare children for school and the potential for education is to help break the poverty cycle. Since 1999, lives have been changed and nervous tiny tots have become confident young adults who have big aspirations and dreams for themselves and their families.
Church Planting in Turkey
CCR supports Pete and Carol Brett each month. Pete and Carol have been church planting in Turkey for over 15 years. They are now based in Istanbul and working with a team aiming to plant a new church in about a year's time.
Nehemiah Project in Zimbabwe
We support The Nehemiah Project AIDS Relief, based in the heart of Bulawayo, Zimbabwe. This ministry started in 2001, necessitated by the need to mitigate the negative impact of HIV and AIDS in society. The project's strap line is "rebuilding broken lives". HIV / AIDS bends and breaks the lives of those it touches. The Nehemiah Project seeks to empower those infected and affected by providing comfort, help and support to all, without prejudice or partiality.
