All Saints’ Church has had a huge heart for mission both locally and within God’s world.
In the past we have sponsored mission links in the Democratic Republic of Congo supporting the Church’s work focussed on education and reconciliation among young people and in Paraguay supporting the translation of the bible into the Enxet language of the people of the Chaco.
More recently, our support for overseas projects has been limited due to financial constraints secondary to the development of the Community Centre and recent challenges imposed by national economics.
We maintain a close association with Open Doors, a Methodist Centre in Hull which supports refugees & homeless people.
Our special appeals at Lent, Harvest and Christmas have provided food and toiletries for local charities as well as supporting national and international charities such as the Samaritans, Salvation Army and Tearfund.
Important links to mission outreach include
Tearfund (Christian Action with the World’s Poor) Val & Chris Woodyatt are our local representatives keeping in touch with Tearfund.
The Childrens Society (helping vulnerable children in the UK) Liz Caley & Marion Briars.
Open Doors Hull (working with asylum seekers in Hull) Joan Selby volunteered regularly for many years, and is our link. We support the charity financially on a monthly basis.
Mercy Ships (Aim to follow the 2000 year old model of Jesus bringing hope and healing through surgery to the world’s forgotten poor. They use hospital ships to transform individuals and serve nations, one at a time). Chris Rigg has given an update of the work of Mercy Ships here
