NEW WORLD MISSION STAMP APPEAL – You are invited to raise money for World Mission by saving your used postage stamps! It’s a simple way to recycle and help World Mission partner projects. The 2016/17 Appeal raised a fantastic £4,344 for the Other Eco-spirituality Centre (Church of South India), which supports ecological innovations and hopes to educate and inspire local people to live sustainably. In 2017/18 the Appeal will support the Giffen Institute of Theology, Presbyterian Church of South Sudan (PCSS). The Institute trains 75% of PCSS ministers, playing a vital role in educating and equipping students for ministry. Due to violence in South Sudan over the last few years the Institute has twice had to relocate to ensure the safety of staff and students. Sadly, this has meant many of its resources were lost. Now re-established in a refugee camp in Kenya, the Institute needs to rebuild its resources, including replacing the books lost when its library was burned down. Your used stamps can help ensure the Institute’s work training the future ministers of South Sudan continues. Please save your stamps for this worthwhile cause and deposit them in the box in the Hall of Friendship.
