Syria and Albania
AFGHAN REFUGEE APPEAL, SEPTEMBER 2021:
Tek Ura, a Christian charity in Albania, www.tekura.org is working with other agencies, including Urban Roots, to support refugees arriving from Afghanistan in the current crisis. Please help them supply traumatised families with food, shelter and sanitary items. The charity founders, Dan and Annie Dupree, work with BMS (Baptist Missions Worldwide), and are friends of Chris and Debbie Carter.
We are appealing for funds through the month of September 2021. You can give by CASH on a Sunday morning, by CHEQUE, or through our JustGiving Campaign (click on the button below). Thank you!
Since October 2016, we have pledged as a Church to do what we can for Syrian Refugees. We are supporting OPEN DOORS UK and their project 'Save Me - Bring hope to the Middle East'. You can read more about their work HERE
In 2018 two of our church members, Chris and Debbie Carter, went with BMS World Mission to Tirana, Albania, where they spent 3 years teaching. They sent back stories of the Roma people, poor and marginalised in Albanian society. They also sent back stories of hope: Tek Ura is a small mission to the Roma people, providing practical and spiritual support to communities on the fringes. As a church, we are following their activities with interest, and supporting them. Read about BMS involvement HERE and about Tek Ura's work HERE
