As a church we are delighted to be working in partnership with a Compassion project in Burkina Faso, though whom we have seen dozens of children sponsored out of poverty and blessed with education, health care and gospel teaching. We have also been privileged to help the project acquire play equipment, mosquito nets and have extra classrooms built. However, one of the frustrations over recent years is that we haven’t had many profiles of children in need of sponsorship from that particular project. But that has just changed!
We have recently been given the profiles of 18 precious children who are in need of sponsorship. We aim to get many of them sponsored at our Compassion evening with Written in Kings this coming Friday. However, if you would be interested in sponsoring one of these children please do get in touch with us … Read More »
We are delighted to announce that our next Soul Sessions event is going to be on Friday 26th June at Cwmbran Costa and will feature South Wales band Written in Kings (check out the video below).
The evening will consist of the usual blend of good coffee, good music, and a gospel message. We will also be profiling the incredible work of Compassion and providing an opportunity for children to be sponsored out of poverty from all over the world, including children at our partnership project in Burkina Faso.
Doors open at 7:30pm.
Entry is free.
A collection towards the work of Compassion will also be taken.
Earlier this year one of our members, Margaret Davies, set about the colossal task of knitting puppets for all 125(ish) kids of the Compassion project that we partner with in Burkina Faso. As you can see from the photos and the letter below – it was a gift that has been very well received and touched many hearts.
Well done Margaret and thank you for all your hard work and dedication!
Great news from our partner church in Burkina Faso! The Compassion classroom project has now been completed, providing much needed new facilities and creating opportunities for scores more children from the Paspanga community to receive invaluable education, food, health care and Christian love. Thanks to all who have been involved in helping to raise funds for this project – your money has already made a HUGE difference to the lives of so many precious kids. HOWEVER, there is still much to be done and funds still to be raised in order for us to fulfil our commitments to seeing this project through to completion.
More fund-raising news coming soon.
