MISSIONS

New Life Children's Centre, Gambia

New Life Children's Centre has been providing education and a future for African children for 20 years now, through the provision of educational and now medical support as well as through the establishment of children's churches in Africa's smallest nation, the Gambia. NLCC now has two schools and educates 1,300 students a week, supporting another 700 through its outreach and Christian education programmes.

 

In a country of 1.5 million with approximately half the population under 14, the average age being 17, life expectancy just 52, the work of New Life Children’s Centres is making a huge difference in the lives of these African children.

 

The directors of the work are Ken and Sylvia Morgan based at the Everyday Champions Centre, Newark. A management board consists of 8 trustees who are responsible to the Charity Commissioners for the operating of the charity. In The Gambia, 55 full time staff including teachers, administrators and outreach workers are employed.

Colin and Julia Hurt

Colin and Julia are international missionaries who spend most of their time travelling the world training and encouraging Christian leaders. With some 50 years of ministry behind them, they are still hard at work, most extensively in Malaysia and the USA.

Sasha and Sara Vitakic - Light of the Gospel Ministries

Sasha and Sara are missionaries involved in church planting in Central Serbia, and have been connected with SLCC for over 20 years now. In 1997, they started planting a church in their living room in Kraljevo, a city of 150,000 people. Now the hall they are renting is too small and they have around 70 people coming regularly. They also have a children’s work with around 80-90 children coming regularly. In January 2010 Sasha and Sara planted a new church in Chachak, city of 130,000 people. They now have 20 people regularly coming, 15 already baptised in water. Through 'Light of the Gospel Ministries' Sasha and Sara are shining the light of Jesus in a region with no other evangelical witness.

Andy and Rachel David - World of Worth

World of Worth works in India, Africa and the Philippines, helping children, women and communities overcome a life of poverty and neglect. Working with established church partners, we demonstrate love and compassion to vulnerable people who are marginalised by society.

 

WOW has been a registered charity since 1980, and has released thousands of people across the world from a life of desperation and oppression. Their aim is to break the cycle of poverty by providing  education, food, healthcare and employment opportunities.

 

SLCC has supported WOW recently by running Women of Worth conferences and participating in the WoW sponsored walk, among other activities.

Steve and Hannah Prosser - HAS Missions

Stephen & Hannah Prosser have been involved in international mission work for over 20 years and have served in southern Africa as well as throughout Europe.  They work with the Next Level International Network – Stephen is the Czech Leader, and Hannah is the Operations Manager for Central Europe – focussed on church planting and leadership development.  They are also AOG associate missionaries and serve on the AOG Regional Missions Team, as well as ministering around the country at various churches and conferences.  Both have their MA in Practical Theology / Missions. 

 

Several churches and mission stations have been planted since they started the projects in Europe in 2013.  They work alongside national church leaders and planters, providing training and mentoring for those working in towns that have no other evangelical expression of church.   Stephen and Hannah are passionate about Jesus, about caring for people and will serve ‘until the whole world hears’.  They combine their international ministry with local church work; Stephen serves as the Campus Pastor at Hope Church Rotherham.  They have two daughters, who also spend time on the mission field and love Jesus deeply.
