Mission Partners

11.5% of donations to St James' general funds are given to mission each year. In addition, fund raising events and collections are held during the year, particularly around harvest and at Christmas. 

We have a number of Mission Partners working in various parts of the world and in the UK. Over the years we have supported financially, and prayed for, individuals as well as organisations. Each house group is linked to one of the Mission Partners and supports them in prayer and other ways. 

Our quarterly MISSION LINK newsletter will help keep you up-to-date with our partners - the  Autumn edition  can be found here.

Currently our main support goes to: 

  • The Church and Community Mobilisation Programme (CCMP), in partnership with the Diocese of Kondoa in Tanzania, and the Diocese of Rochester – life-changing training that helps release people from poverty.  see full details  
  • Clare Grimble, a physiotherapist working with UMN (United Mission to Nepal). Clare is based at a hospital in the foothills of Mount Everest, where a community-based rehabilitation programme is helping people living with disability - October newsletter here  (www.umn.org.np)
