Here in Paulton our on-going project is to continue to support ‘Kanyawegi, an orphanage in Kenya, founded by local resident Jim Dawe many years ago. We have been supporting this project over many years and have a table set up in the Wesley Hall where people can donate and purchase items, the proceeds of which are then forwarded onto the orphanage.
As a church we are very much aware of the need for Mission within our own locality and are therefore currently supporting the Somer Valley Food Bank by continually supplying items of food for distribution.
Open the Book
A small group of members and friends from the church take Mission in to the local infant and primary schools with the ‘Open the Book’ project. They interact with the children during school assemblies twice a month, encouraging the children to learn about the bible with stories and play-acting. This is proving very popular with the children.
‘Churches Together in Paulton (CHiP) are responsible for Christian Aid Week and we all work together distributing envelopes, collecting and enjoying breakfast to aid the work of Christian Aid.
The majority of our Sunday Club children (and some older “children”) collect regularly for JMA (Junior Mission for All). Several members of our congregation collect for Home and Overseas Missions.
Send a Cow
Members of our congregation donate monthly to Send a Cow and help support their work to stop poverty and hunger in Africa. For further information go to www.sendacow.org
