As a church we endeavour to be aware of our responsibility to our community both near and far and as such we support the work of many organisations throughout the year.
Our CMS- Mission partners are David & Shelley Stokes, Peter and Fiona were at Cranmer College with David and Shelley.
Former SAMS mission partners, the Stokes returned to the Diocese of Northern Argentina in November 2010 with CMS. They are accompanying the mainly Wichi speaking congregations at a time of rapid change. David is involved in encouraging and training new and existing church leaders. Shelley works mainly with the women, helping with the women’s conferences and encouraging the start of parenting groups.

Scripture Union are about valuing children and young people. They help them explore what Jesus said and did. They offer times and places where they can discover, challenge and decide. This is done by supporting local SU Groups, offering children and young people the opportunity to experience camps and outdoor adventures most importantly everything is underpinned in Prayer.

Storehouse is a local charity organised by The Full Gospel Church. Storehouse aims to provide essential supplies to families in crisis in the Dalkeith area. Regular, ongoing donations of food, as well as essential household supplies meet the immediate needs of those in crisis. Please keep an eye on our pew leaflet and magazine as on an ad hoc basis larger items are often required. Small items can be left in the basket at the back of church however, please speak to Andrew or Peter if you think you have something else that may be of use! Together we can make a difference.
On Tuesday 7th and Wednesday 8th December they will be delivering Christmas Parcels. Here is a list of things they are asking for:
Chocolate sponge puddings/desserts
Blue lid long life milk
Shower gel/shampoo/ deodorant
As usual these can be left at the back of church or can be passed to Peter & Fiona or indeed can be handed into Storehouse on a Wednesday morning between 10am and 10.30am.
Once again, many thanks for your ongoing support – it is so appreciated.
We continue to collect Travel size toiletries for the sick kids hospital. Items can be placed in the grey collection basket at the back of church. Thank you for your continued support.
