Together with our sister church, St John’s Hartford, we support a number of mission partners and organisations who work with different people right across the globe. Below you’ll find some details about who they are and what they do. If you would like to find out more or to receive our monthly updates please contact the church office.
UFM - Johnny and Ann McClean
Johnny and Ann McClean are full time missionaries living and working in Bangkok Thailand.
Johnny works with New City Fellowship Church helping them with preaching, pastoral care and outreach. Ann is a History teacher and Safeguarding lead at St. Andrews International school where their children are also pupils.
Western Kenya - Robert Matati
Canon Robert Matati is an Anglican minister in Butere, Western Kenya. He is archdeacon of Namasoli, an area of 11 parishes (each with an average of 4 churches) and Chaplain of Namasoli high schools.
Robert is married to Mary and has 4 children; Nathan, Wilfred, Fridah and Aggrey. He also supports his Nephew at university.
Being in a remote and rural area, Robert often receives only a small portion of his stipend, which, without extra support, makes it impossible to pay school fees and buy medication for Mary who struggles with asthma. They also look after his ageing parents.
St Catherines Tranmere - Charlotte Kirkham
Charlotte is the young people and families worker at St. Catherine's church, Tranmere (near Birkenhead). She runs the usual set of mid-week groups and activities: Mums and Tots, Primary children's after school club, youth groups; oversees the three Sunday school classes, runs a lunchtime Bible Club and takes regular assemblies in the local school.
UFM - The Chellashaws
Kip, Rachel, and their 4 children; Elijah, Ezra, Susanna and Bethany, moved to Nairobi, Kenya in 2017 with the aim of planting a church. In November 2020 they realised this aim and now run meetings every Sunday. They aim to reach out to people of all circumstances and backgrounds with the hope of the Gospel.
UFM - Olivia Rigby
Olivia Rigby is in Ljubjana, Slovenia with UFM, working with International Students. She aims to establish an international student ministry where students can be impacted by the gospel and challenged to consider who Jesus is. Olivia will be supporting Slovene Christians in their faith, and helping them consider ways they can share the gospel among their peers in a country where the true gospel is not known by most
Barnabas Ministries Uganda - Pastor working in Uganda
We support a Pastor in Uganda, who is working to share the Gospel with Muslims and provide holistic care for converts from Islam. Our support for the charity, called Barnabas Ministries, is facilitated via the Church of Uganda.
