MISSION AND OUTREACH
Mission and Outreach gives us opportunities to practice Christian fellowship in our churches, in our own communities and across the world. 

Currently the members of the Mission and Outreach committee are:

Great Gransden: Jenny Wilkinson (Chair)

Little Gransden:  Alison Wareham

Abbotsley:         Philip Soar

Waresley:           Christine Badcock

We were very sad when our previous Chair, Helen Catmur, died during the year.  She had been Chair of the committee for the past 11 years or so; organiser of the Christian Aid collection in Great and Little Gransden and organiser of the monthly Traidcraft stall in Great Gransden Church.  She inspired us with her concern for those in need wherever they were.

 

We support charities caring for others, in prayer and financially, whilst encouraging fellowship within our parishes. 

We support the parish of Christ the King in Rio de Janeiro and their priest, Father Antonio Terto.  We support them through our prayers and send money via USPG (United Society Partners in the Gospel).

We support Mind in Cambridgeshire, a branch of the nationwide charity Mind, supporting people in their recovery from mental health issues and campaigning against stigma and discrimination.
 
 
 
 

Thanks to Teresa Miller we continue to have a Traidcraft stall on the 3rd Sunday in the month in Great Gransden Church; the Traidcraft items remaining are taken to the Lighthouse Café on the following Tuesday. We would like to thank the Revd Catharine Furlong for the speakers she invites to our services during the year to speak about their organisations, e.g., Médecins Sans Frontières.

 


 


 

   

 

  



 


We have also supported the work at the hostel for young homeless people in Kings Ripton, Huntingdon, by giving harvest gifts, clothing and toiletries and also by helping with some gardening.   Harvest gifts  have also been given to the Salvation Army.
