Global Mission

Reaching out into the world

A picture of a miniature globe held in a handAll Saints supports both Mission Partners and Christian Agencies. Our Partners are typically individuals or families sent out from our own congregation to serve both in the UK and further afield. Christian agencies are organisations that are widely supported throughout our congregation prayerfully and financially that share our mission to make Jesus known throughout the world. Together we commit to regularly praying for these Partners and Agencies and also corporately provide practical and financial support if needed.

To help keep the church up to date, each Partner and Agency has a personal link with one or two members of the All Saints congregation who undertake to be the main representatives, co-ordinating support and prayer requests.

Here is a list of our current Mission Partners and Agencies:

Caminul Felix was born in 1992 in Oradea in the western part of Romania. After the fall of Nicolae Ceausescu in 1989 and the plight of tens of thousands of abandoned children was revealed to the world.

  • Please continue to pray for Caminul Felix as the seek to start working in Ukraine, pray the funds to purchase the land required. To build a new village to look after some of the orphaned and abandoned children left by the war.Pray for safety and wisdom for those who are visiting and working with the authorities.
  • Thank God for the nearly twenty people who will be giving up a week, to come to Romania in September, to help build a new home for a young couple. Please pray for the rest of the funds required to finish this project.
  • Thank God for the houseparents of Caminul Felix, who dedicate there lives to bring up a generation of orphan and abandoned children. Give them the strength, wisdom and patience as they show God’s love to children, who have had a very difficult start in life.

  • Please pray for the team of twenty going out to Caminul Felix in September. Thank God for all of those who have given up their week to go and help out in Caminul Felix. Please pray for safety as we work, for a fun and productive week. Pray that we may also be blessed as we seek to bless those around us.
  • Pray for all the children, young people and house parents as they go on holiday, that it may be a good time of refreshing and a time of making lasting memories.
  • Please pray for the leadership of Caminul Felix, as they seek to find a way to fund a shortfall of 8000 euros a month, brought on by the government raising the minimum wage unexpectedly.

Julian and Nicky Milson are passionate about sharing the good news of Jesus with Spanish people and training up disciples who can advance the gospel for generations to come. As of March 2018 they have lived and worked in Valencia, as Crosslinks Mission Partners. They have two children, Jemima and Theo.

It is estimated that just 1% of the population in Spain are evangelical Christians. Although 75% of Spaniards identify as Roman Catholic, this may reflect a sense of cultural identity rather than personal faith.

Julian is seconded to the IERE (Spanish Reformed Episcopal Church) as the Rector of  the ‘Iglesia de Jesucristo’ which is the only church in Valencia that is part of the Anglican Communion. Nicky is involved in various areas of ministry in the church, is learning Spanish and homeschools Jemima.

Before moving to Spain, the Milson’s lived in Hove where Julian was the vicar at Holy Cross Church for 11 years. Nicky served at Holy Cross in children’s ministry, youth work and music.

Please also visit the Milsons’ Crosslinks page for further information, to sign up to their newsletter and for the opportunity to give towards their work in Valencia: https://www.crosslinks.org/mission-personnel/julian-and-nicky-milson/ or visit their Facebook group for regular updates: https://tinyurl.com/y7wpfuvf

  • Please pray for a good, albeit short time with their families this week as they touch base with them (they are all up in Cambridgeshire)
  • Pray for the Milsons’ church in Valencia – that the plans made for them being away will work and that the congregation will know God’s blessing on them
  • Pray for safe travelling for the Milsons as they journey around the UK for the next two months- they are visiting 6 churches in total, including one in Aberdeen.
  • Pray for the 4 of them as they juggle ‘life on the road’- that they get on with each other and trust in God’s riches.
  • Pray for energy please- the family have arrived in the UK having had no meaningful break since last summer and they are feeling tired.
  • They will be meeting so many people on this trip at all the churches (plus individual supporters)- please pray for mutual encouragement.

 

The long-standing links between All Saints and South Rwenzori in S.W. Uganda have been in existence since the mid 1980s when the South Rwenzori Diocese came into being. The diocese centres on the town of Kasese where the Rev. Canon Nason Baluku was consecrated and enthroned at St. Paul’s Cathedral in December 2020, becoming the 3rd Bishop of South Rwenzori.

Kagando Hospital

All Saints’ currently supports the Diocese through prayer and financial giving towards the education of theological students studying for ordination, and the training of part-time students studying to become lay readers.  Both clergy and lay-staff will go on to perform pastoral duties in the many parishes within the diocese.

The other focus of our prayer and giving is Kagando Hospital which began as a small mission hospital and has grown into a medical centre and teaching hospital with a strong gospel ministry.  The hospital plays a vital role within the Kagando Rural Development Centre (KARUDEC), aiming to proclaim the love of God by serving to improve the physical and spiritual well-being of the poor and disadvantaged people in the district.

St Peter's Cathedral
St Peter’s Cathedral

A number of people from a range of professional backgrounds have contributed their expertise to establish and maintain the growth and development which has occurred.  Among them have been many from All Saints’; most recently Peter and Heather Candy who for two years managed different projects within and around the hospital.  Currently Anna Kingdom is the treasurer for the charity, Friend of Kagando.

Our mission is to preach the Gospel, make disciples and plant churches among the unengaged and unreached people groups of India.

We have reached 60 villages for Jesus by planting churches and have more than twelve castes these churches.

Worship Halls are constructed in the villages and we support missionaries to share the love of Jesus, each pastoring and caring for 3-5 villages. Many are baptised each month. There are around 7000 people meeting to worship the Lord every week across all our villages. We educate 300 children in our Christian School which acts as a bridge to reach Hindu and Muslim parents and children.

We care for 30 orphans in our ‘House of Joy’, sharing Jesus’ love, providing good education, daily meals, clothes and medical care. We support and care for widows and help the destitute. Pastors receive training for evangelism, discipleship and church planting in four centres across the country. To find out more about this Mission and to receive regular newsletters and prayer needs please contact Ron & Janet Goodenough (Ropeholders).

For over 20 years they have been involved in a variety of approaches to ministry as they have worked with and through local churches.

This is linked to an international church fellowship with believers and enquirers from many backgrounds. He is also involved in strategic networks of like-minded workers from different mission agencies both in the UK and Europe.
These networks help at many levels including; mutual support, building shared approaches to outreach and helping to equip the church.

This week we concentrate on three countries where there is severe persecution:

Iran;  several Christians in Iran have been given long prison sentences in the last month, one received a fifteen-year term, others five to ten years.

  • Pray; that they will feel upheld by God’s strength and comfort and continue to share their faith in these harsh conditions.
  • Pray; that their families will be surrounded and sustained by the Holy Spirit’s comforting presence
  • Thank God; that in spite of the persecution the church continues to grow

Afghanistan; since the Taliban took over the country in 2021 life has been more difficult and dangerous for Christians who have to keep their faith very secret. If discovered they may be killed or tortured into giving information about fellow believers.

  •  Pray; that secret believers will be strengthened and protected
  • Pray; that God will touch the hearts of Taliban leaders and other extremists who oppress Christians

China; Christians in China are facing increasing persecution from repressive laws and intrusive surveillance by the Communist authorities.  Children under 18 are forbidden from attending church

  •  Pray; for the protection and flourishing of House Churches
  • Pray; that Christians will be given wisdom and boldness as they navigate challenges on a daily basis
  • Pray; for parents as they teach their children about the Christian faith

Tearfund is a Christian charity which partners with churches in more than 50 of the world’s poorest countries. Here are just a few of their prayer needs:  

  • Praise God for a safe trip to Pakistan for Sarah Newnham evaluating the flood response programme after the 2022 floods.  As the rainy season starts again this month, after an extreme heatwave, severe flooding is anticipated again.  Pray that rains would not create floods and devastation.  Pray for the protection of people and crops, comfort those feeling fearful when it rains.
  • Pray for the families of two Tearfund staff members who were killed in an attack on their vehicle in DR Congo recently.  Pray that they may feel God’s presence and know God as their comfort and refuge while they mourn their loved ones.  Pray for the remaining 12 people who were caught up in the attack. Thank God that they have returned home safely, and pray for their continued recovery.  Pray for the rest of the Tearfund staff team  as they cope with this tragedy personally, professionally, and work hard to support the staff and families affected.
  • Isaac was one of over 4 million people who had to flee their homes in South Sudan to neighbouring Uganda because of ongoing conflict.  In 2020, he returned to find his house had been burnt down. With nowhere to turn, Isaac made his way to church. He was given food, accommodation, counselling and a new start through Tearfund’s Church and Community Transformation programme (CCT), being implemented through the local church.  ‘One of the things I learnt is that God provided us with resources in creation. The money I get from selling fruit helps to pay for my children to go to school. The church gave me the courage to forget about the horrors of the past and focus on starting a new chapter.’   Pray for Isaac and others like him going through the Transforming Communities programme in their local churches, that they would be able to rebuild their lives and find hope for their futures.

 

Anika is working with Sussex and Brighton Christian Unions as a Staff Worker to equip and encourage the students to share their faith with their friends and peers at university. She loves the work that God has called her to do and is always excited to see what he will do next.

Anika HuibersDuring Anika’s time at the University of Sussex studying a BSc Zoology degree, she joined the CU as an atheist. Through the CU, she learned more about Jesus, got plugged into a church, and eventually came to saving faith in the Lord. Since then, she has completed a year-long discipleship and training programme with UCCF called ‘Relay’, where her passion for mission on university campuses grew. Anika sees that there is an immense value in sharing the gospel to this age group, since individuals are most open and receptive to the gospel at this stage of life and can go on to bring the gospel into their future workplaces.

Anika is the UCCF worker on the three Sussex University Campuses.  Her main role is encouraging and supporting the Christian Union Committees and helping with the planning of events.

  • Pray that the new Christians will be discipled and grow in their faith

  • Pray that the new committees would be guided by the Holy Spirit as they start planning the year ahead
  • Pray that God would use them to reach students with the good news of the gospel, and to bring them to salvation

For Anika personally:

  • Praise God that she continues to love her job more and more with every passing day
  • Pray as she comes to the end of a busy period that she would seize the opportunity to spend more time with God and be refreshed

I have been serving with Youth With A Mission since 2001 - committed to young missionaries and to seeing the nations transformed by the love of Jesus.

Since that time I have travelled all around the world with God showing me so much of His character and how much he wants me to see.  I believe that God wants to restore us all to how He originally designed us – redeemed by Jesus. Throughout my time in YWAM I have had a wide range of experiences – teaching teenagers in the Cape Flats of South Africa, leading a delegation to the UN AIDS meetings in New York, leading & training missionary trainees, enabling outreach during the 2012 Olympics, exhibiting pieces of art in Brighton and counselling young women due to unplanned pregnancy or a diagnosis of HIV/AIDS.

In October 2018 after 5 years of prayer & exploration, I moved to Thanet, Kent to begin pioneering a new YWAM community under the umbrella of YWAM Holmsted Ministries.  My ministry areas are mercy; art & creativity; government & justice; spirituality and discipleship.

Due to the sensitive nature of some of my work, and to honour and respect those I connect with I’d rather share stories over a cuppa – please connect with my rope-holders or follow YWAM in Thanet on Facebook or Instagram.  If you’d like to support my ministry please follow this link.

Prayer Points

June 2024
  • A man who was in our English class, was recently moved to the Bibby Stockholm barge. The move was very traumatic for him. We still have contact with him and hope to visit him soon.
  • Over half-term, we did a three day pilgrimage walk, The Way of St Augustine. We were joined by four teenagers and two adults; the times of biblical reflection, learning about early missions and Christianity in the UK had a big impact on the whole group.
  • Lucy recently gave the gospel of Luke (in Arabic) to one of the women that we have been working with for a long time. She has come to church several times and regularly asks for prayer for some of the challenges in her life.
  • Property: We still don’t have a clear time for when we would have to find a new “hub” (office with space for worship, meetings & prayer). The date for when we would need to vacate our existing office keeps being pushed back.
  • Please pray for our team member Ashley as she heads to the USA in a few weeks to have time with family, her supporters and prepare to apply for her next visa.

Together making Jesus known

FSW works to support families overcome difficult periods in their lives offering information on benefits, housing problems, advocacy, and health and education issues including domestic abuse.

Our free and confidential support is offered to parents/carers and their children in many areas of East and West Sussex, including Brighton & Hove. This includes anyone who has the responsibility for the care of children, whether they are single, separated, divorced, bereaved or grandparents.

Our Family Support Workers arrange group activities involving parents alone as well as families. These are varied and depend on the needs and circumstances of those involved. They may include activities such as lunch clubs, where health and nutritional ideas can be absorbed; parenting; education work; a Time Out group for parents alone facing issues of school exclusion have all featured in the last twelve months; holidays for families at a highly subsidised rate are also organised by the workers; a free swapshop with clothes and toys donated by Association supporters adds to the development of mutual support among parents and families.
