GLENORCHY MISSION CHARITIES 2022
Each year Glenorchy Church normally chooses three different charities to support through our Mission Box Scheme and special events, such as our Garden Party and Mission Concert or Tea Party. Please remember these charities and those who require help from them in your prayers.
We have chosen our three good causes for 2022 and will be reporting on them during the year here in the Review and on our notice board in the hall.
1 We are sticking with Rehoboth, the gallant family living near Bulawayo in Zimbabwe. Mark and Dorcas Nicholson have brought up a dozen adopted children, several of whom are approaching adulthood, as well as serving tirelessly in their local church and community. Mark was a client of Exmouth Open Door many years back, so we feel a special interest in this ministry.
2 We are returning to support Mercy Ships whose floating hospital calls at many ports around Africa and occasionally elsewhere, delivering top-class health care to coastal communities who would otherwise certainly miss out. This is a distinctively Christian ministry of healing in every sense.
3 For our local UK-based charity we are staying with the theme of healing and plan to support Hospicecare, which has a 12-bed unit in Exeter but delivers most of its care in the homes of patients. Currently they are running a major appeal and we felt it would be right to support this. We shall feature their work during the Mission Sunday service on March 27.
