Overseas Mission Partners
At St George’s we support 6 overseas mission partners. We cannot share all the details, but information on 5 is below. Each year we host a Global Passion event, usually in July, where our mission partners share their latest news (often in person). Regular prayer updates are also sent via Global Net. To sign up email email@example.com
Tim & Rachel: Serving in Mission & CURE International, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia
Tim is an orthopaedic surgeon working at the CURE hospital doing children’s reconstructive surgery. Rachel is busy with family medicine training leadership, school governor work and help with the graduate and undergraduate Christian Medical Fellowship groups. They have 3 children.
Jonathan and Laura: Wycliffe Bible Translators, Leeds
Jonathan and Laura are co-managing a Bible translation project for a minority language of the Fertile Crescent region (spoken by over 2 million people). They also work in EthnoArts, helping people to use their indigenous art forms to internalise God’s word, grow as disciples and share the gospel.
Jason & Rachel: Operation Mobilisation (OM)
Jason and Rachel and their two children live overseas and work with a cross-cultural OM team, many of whom are believers from a Muslim Background. The team specialises in making the Bible and Bible teaching resources available via the internet, television, phone and radio to people in a part of the world where there is strong opposition to the Gospel and where getting hold of a Bible has been difficult at best.
Sarah is an experienced overseas teacher. She is currently in Leeds studying for a Masters in International School Leadership.
Hugh and Heather: World Horizons, Japan
Hugh and Heather pastor a church in Nirayama of about 15 baptised believers plus other friends, and lead ‘Happy Clubs’ where children learn English and hear a short Bible message. They have recently bought a building in Heda, with a view to reaching the Izu Peninsula. Hugh and Heather have 2 sons, Tomo and Jun.
Short term overseas mission trips
Each year members of St Gs take part in short term mission trips. We have an ongoing link with a church in Hunedoara, Romania, which we support with summer teams plus a Christmas shoebox collection.
If you are a member of St Gs, please let us know if you are considering a short term mission by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org If you would like to apply for short term mission funding
Local mission partners
At St George’s we have 3 key local mission partners. We support them with prayer and finance, and church members volunteer as trustees and in many other ways.
St George’s Crypt
St George’s Crypt is a Christian homeless charity. It was set up in 1930 by the then Rector of St George’s, Revd Don Robbins, and there has been an extremely close relationship between Church and Crypt ever since.
Kidzklub works in Leeds to love and support children, reaching about 2,000 children with fun, safe activities, building strong relationships, and passing on an empowering Christian message.
Leeds Faith in Schools
Leeds Faith in Schools exists to be good news to the high schools of Leeds, with youth workers working across 19 high schools and academies.
We also support Spacious Places, Eckersley House (The Sick Children’s Trust), Manuel Bravo, and various student organisations including Transformations Leeds.
