Local to Global
Local to Global is the name given to the church group set up in 2015 to choose a charity that the church could support over the following three years. The name denotes our interest in both work at home and work abroad.
After much consultation the church chose to twin JOANNA, a charitable project in Leeds which we have strong links with already through a member of our congregation, and SAHAARA a Tearfund project in Mumbai, India. Both of these charities are working with vulnerable women who for various reasons are involved in prostitution.
Our target is to raise £3000 to be shared between the two charities. Periodically updates and fundraising activities will be posted on this page, in the church magazine and newsletter and on the church notice board and diary.
Interest will be shown to other local or global concerns as they come to our attention.
