Mission intro text here.
Kirima Parents Primary
Kirima Parents Primary is a school in the Kanungu region of SW Uganda which we support principally through sponsoring pupils.
Rev Hamlet Mbabazi and his wife Kellen started Kirima Parents Primary School in 1994. Emmanuel people have been supporting from the start, and a group of young people from Emmanuel visited the school in 2000.
Kanungu is a region in great need of help but it is also a beautiful place with warm and welcoming people.
Sponsoring pupils sustains a high standard of education and funds health projects. These projects can take the form of clean water supplies and mosquito nets and make a dramatic difference. We also provide food for the children, with day pupils having breakfast and lunch, whilst boarders receive three meals a day. In Uganda many children are still unable to attend primary school, so our sponsorship provides the children with an enormously better start in life at Kirima PPS.
Funds are channelled to the school via a UK charity, Kirima Ltd, which is run entirely by volunteers so that 100% of the funds is sent to help the people of Kanungu.
The Bible Society
For over 200 years Bible Society has been working to bring the Bible to life by helping people engage with it, relate to it and make sense of it. The work is driven by the conviction that when people engage with the Bible, lives can change for good.
The Bible Society of England and Wales sees education, politics, arts and the media as the principal drivers of our modern-day culture. We work in and through these areas to address the needs of those who have the Bible on tap but do not see what role it has to play in everyday life. We also work to increase the confidence of the Church in the Scriptures, and resource Christians as they seek to apply the Bible to the whole of their lives.
An international programme is delivered through a close relationship with 146 national Bible Societies that work in over 200 countries and territories. This involves:
Translation: making the Bible available in new languages, and revising existing Bibles to bring the language up-to-date, so that everyone can experience the Scriptures in their ‘heart language’
Production: printing physical copies of the Bible and producing sign language, audio and digital Scriptures in order to meet the demands of the millions around the world who want a Bible of their own
Distribution: taking the Bible to places it might otherwise be hard to come by, in formats that people can use
Literacy: helping people to read and to read well, using the Bible as a resource
CMS, The Church Mission Society
Sharing Jesus, changing lives
CMS is a mission society of the Anglican Church committed to working together in partnership with local Christian communities in over 40 countries in Asia, Africa, Latin America, the Middle East and Europe. It is a mission community, called to be a people who are: Pioneering; Evangelistic; Relational and Faithful. Emmanuel Church supports the work of CMS, through our Mission Partners; firstly a couple (with their two children) in South Asia involved in encouraging leaders, strategic discipleship and outreach. We support the education of their two children through gifts towards their school fees. We also pray and support the Peart family working in Bolivia.
Our mission partners visit the church when on leave in UK to share about their work. We also invite speakers from CMS to come to share special work of the mission in the church and also church members attend special events to spark excitement for what God is doing in his world, such as Creation Care days and Community Vision days held in the South East.
The Leprosy Mission
Following Jesus Christ, The Leprosy Mission seeks to break the chains of leprosy, empowering people to attain healing, dignity and life in all it’s fullness.
How TLM helps
The Leprosy Mission does this by focussing on the physical, social, spiritual and psychological needs of a leprosy-affected person and their steadfast support means thousands of people globally have seen their lives transformed over a number of decades.
Health, rehabilitation and disability care
Tragically, even after treatment, leprosy may have already permanently damaged the nerves. As they no longer feel pain, a person is then at risk of injuring their hands and feet while completing daily tasks such as walking and cooking. TLM train people within communities to lead self-care groups which help minimise the risk of injury. Specialist shoemakers build shoes to support a leprosy-affected person’s damaged feet.
The most common leprosy caused disabilities that can be corrected by surgery are a clawed hand, foot drop and a clawed toe. After weeks in plaster and physiotherapy, the results can see a leprosy-affected person walk again without dragging their foot on the ground, or use their hand to grip items. The fitting of life-like prostheses can transform the lives of people who have lost lower legs as a result of leprosy,
Counselling and tending to the spiritual and emotional needs of people affected by leprosy are an integral part of their care and health services.
They work to break down stigma and empower people affected by leprosy to stand up for their rights.
Tearfund is an international relief and development charity called to follow Jesus wherever the need is greatest.
TEARFUND IS A CHRISTIAN CHARITY CALLED TO FOLLOW JESUS WHEREVER THE NEED IS GREATEST
Tearfund works alongside local churches and other locally-based organisations to tackle the causes and effects of poverty. Emmanuel Church is a long-standing supporter of Tearfund, supporting the charity by giving, praying and campaigning.
CHRISTIANS PASSIONATE ABOUT ENDING POVERTY
For 50 years, Tearfund has been empowering and equipping local churches as, together, we follow Jesus where the need is greatest. Motivated by the relentless love of Jesus, we want to see an end to extreme poverty. It’s possible, but it’s going to take all of us.
We’re following Jesus where the need is greatest, working through local churches to unlock people’s potential and helping them to discover that the answer to poverty is within themselves. When disasters strike, we respond quickly. We won’t stop until poverty stops.

CMJ -The Church's Ministry among Jewish People
Until the day “All Israel will be saved” Romans 11-26
CMJ have grown over the last 200+ years and now carry the ministry through every Continent.
The Ministry is Three-fold

- EDUCATION- CMJ seek to encourage Churches to engage with the Jewish community around them
and support Christian’s in deepening of the Jewish Scriptures and the teaching of Jesus and the apostles.
- ENCOURAGEMENT- CMJ recognise the need to encourage Messianic Believers to connect with other Messianic Believers as they seek to understand who they are in the fullness of Jesus.
