Essential support for communities
Giving support to local, national and international charities is an essential part of St Andrew’s mission.
St Andrew’s supports a number of families in the mission field. Martin & Catherine Hickey (with Interserve) are back in the UK after their time in Nepal and India. Simon and Laura Walton and family (with CMS) are in Tanzania. Dean and Paula Finnie and their two sons have set up their mission in the SW Cape in South Africa. Regular newsletters from each of our mission partners advise of prayer requests, and bring updates on projects helped by St Andrew’s funding.
Below are some of the charities and projects supported by St Andrew’s with links to their websites. The weekly news sheet provides the congregation with regular news updates.
