Last year we raised over £200,000 and we are so grateful for the generosity of everyone who gave. The money that was raised has funded a number of church plants, projects and conferences, including funding Pervez Sohail’s apostolic base in Pakistan, supporting a church plant in Istanbul, and funding teams and projects in Albania, Ethiopia / Somalia, South Sudan, Tanzania and Uganda. We also set aside a portion of the offering to subsidise the Catalyst Festival. This enables us to keep the festival ticket price as low as possible so that many more people can be connected together, strengthened and inspired to advance the Kingdom of God wherever they are.
This year’s offering will be another opportunity to support churches overseas, and we are trusting God to raise enough money to fund what we believe he has called us to together. Once again we’ll be funding work in Pakistan, Istanbul, Ethiopia / Somalia, Albania, Tanzania and Uganda, with additional funds for Russia, elsewhere in the Balkans, Beirut, Guinea, other apostolic support and church planting training.
We also want to continue to have enough funds to support churches facing particular crises, both in our own sphere and elsewhere in Newfrontiers – we are very aware, as ever, that our friends around the world do not have access to the financial resources we do here in the UK. And once again we will be using a portion of what we raise to subsidise the Festival.
Please consider how you might be able to contribute to the mission God has called us to - once again we want to have a great offering that will enable us to do what God has asked us to in the year ahead.
