We endeavour to give 5% of our gross income. We support a range of charities: international, national and local. Some of our current passions are to work with Julian House, Genesis Trust and the following:
Send a Cow
Bath-based Send a Cow works hand in hand with poor families, teaching them the skills they need to leave poverty behind for good. By providing training in sustainable techniques, livestock, seeds and support, we help restore hope and create stronger communities. We also value the importance of making a positive change here as well as in Africa. Helping children become more clued-up and empowering them to change the world that we will leave them is our investment in the future.
STEP (Seeking To Equip People) is a registered NGO that seeks to improve the quality of life of vulnerable children in Iraq. It partners UNICEF and Kurdish agencies. It is currently helping Syrian refugee children to have a safe place, education, justice and protection.
This small organisation is run by Ele Regan, a member of Saint Stephen’s. It currently works in two rural areas of Kenya, by Lake Victoria, which suffer from high levels of HIV/AIDS. It doesn’t want to develop a culture of dependency so the goal for each project is to be self sustaining and empowering.
Giving to Saint Stephen’s
Churches receive no outside funding, we are here because of people’s generous giving. If you would like to know how to give to the work of God through Saint Stephen’s, please contact our treasurer, Ian Willis, or Mike King through the office.
If you would like to be more involved in the life of the church in any way, please get in touch - there’s always plenty to do, and many opportunities to use your time, gifts and talents. Thank you.
