Mission and Giving at Cambourne Church
The Mission & Giving group coordinate and promote our mission links by providing information and encouraging prayer, practical involvement and financial provision.
At the end of 2015, the church's giving was divided up as below:
Goma: Desire and Claudaline’s ministry among orphans and women, link initially established with Cambourne Church by Peter & Emma Wood
Uzimatele (Kenya) – project visited by church youth group several years ago, involving a children’s home, primary school, training centre and community church, with Pastor George and Jackline
“Outstretched Hands of Romania” – Christian charity working with underprivileged children and families in Romanian villages, visited by Jonathan Buwert, Joel Hunt and Dan Davey in 2015
A Rocha – Christian Conservation charity working in UK and 19 countries internationally
WYCCM – youth ministry involving churches of all denominations in the West Cambridge area (youth events, weekends away, school visits and leadership training)
Methodist Homes for the Aged – an important charity run by one of the denominations which make up our local ecumenical partnership
Our recommendations for current and prospective mission links are informed by the five marks of mission which we studied as a church last year.
1. To proclaim the Good News of the Kingdom (tell)
2. To teach, baptize and nurture new believers (teach/train)
3. To respond to human need by loving service (tend)
4. To seek to transform unjust structures of society (transform)
5. To strive to safeguard the integrity of creation and sustain and renew the earth (treasure)
