Missions
We support a number of Christian missions and organisations as we desire to fulfill our Lord's command to "go into all the world and preach the gospel" and to "heal the sick" meeting the needs of people as we are able. Where available, links are given to provide further information about the organisations.
Children's work in Zambia
One of our members, moved by the plight of needy children in Zambia, now lives and works among the people in N. W. Zambia. A nutrition centre, Sunday School work and agricultural projects are undertaken. More information about this work is available at the following site Feed my lambs.
Gifts may be made to this work using the Witton Chapel "give.net" Ikelenge donation page (also available by searching for "Ikelenge" at www.give.net).
Note that 2% of the gift is retained in costs by Give.net or 3% if the donor uses Gift Aid.
Children and needy Believers in Sri Lanka
The situation for many people and especially for children is desperate in parts of Sri Lanka. They have suffered from the 2004 Tsunami, the ongoing conflict and yet further severe flooding. In addition, some Christians suffer from persecution and discrimination. Formerly, support for needy believers and children in that land was channelled via an organisation called "Children for Jesus" until that work closed in 2007 and now support is sent to churches in Sri Lanka ("Lanka Evangelical Fellowship of Churches") via Belvidere Road Church in Liverpool.
Albanian Evangelical Mission
The AEM supports missionaries and local churches in Albania, once described as the world's first true Atheist State. Even in the midst of the atheist, communist years, the light of the gospel of our Lord Jesus remained alight and few though they were, believers in that land still held on to their Faith.
Persecuted Christians throughout the world
The Barnabas Fund seeks to raise public awareness of the persecution of Christians throughout the world and to give aid and support to those in such need.
Christians suffer throughout the world, many losing their lives simply through professing faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Some lose their livelihoods and jobs. Others are turned away from the provision of health care or the distribution of international aid.
When the list of countries in which Christians suffer persecution is considered, it makes one realise how precious and how relatively scarce is the freedom that some of us enjoy.

This list is by no means complete, but information about the situation in these countries can be found on the Barnabas Fund website:
East Europe - Kosovo, Turkey
Near & Middle East - Afghanistan, Azerbaijan, Egypt, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kazakhstan, Saudi Arabia, Uzbekistan
South Asia - India, Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Bangladesh
East Asia - Indonesia, Brunei
Far East - China, North Korea
Africa - Algeria, Chad, Eritrea, Ethiopia, Ivory Coast, Kenya, Libya, Mauritania, Nigeria, Somalia, Sudan
Pilgrim Homes
Pilgrim Homes (a part of Pilgrims' Friend Society) is an organisation providing housing, sheltered accomodation and nursing care for elderly Christians in the U.K. This provision is financed largely by the charitable giving of Churches, individual Christians and fees paid by residents and families who are able to contribute to their care.
Soldiers' and Airmen's Scripture Readers Association
S.A.S.R.A. work among the soldiers and airmen in the British Forces. The Scripture Readers are themselves ex-members of the Forces and they seek to reach and help members of the Forces with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Her Majesty the Queen is the patron of SASRA and they are able to visit the soldiers and airmen with the permission of the Chaplains and Commanding Officers.
