Knowing God - Following Jesus - Loving Others- Inviting All

Supporting other charities

Each year Stoke Poges Church aims to give 10% of its general fund income to other charities. This usually amounts to between £16,000 and £18,000.

In 2014 we began an exciting new charity project with the Nepal Leprosy Trust making it our partner charity – see more details below.

In addition we continue to support various global and local charities and these include the Barnabas Fund, Worldshare, Compassion, Crisis for Christmas, the Children’s Society, the Royal British Legion, SHOC, St. George’s church in Britwell and Wycliffe Hall a theological college in Oxford.

Charity Partnership – Nepal Leprosy Trust

In 2013 the PCC asked the congregation to nominate Christian charities with projects overseas that the church could partner and support with a large sum of money.

It was decided to support the “Nepal Leprosy Trust’s”  Self Care Training Centre as our special charity project.  This Christian charity was the front-runner following the lunch and works with people affected by leprosy and their families in Nepal.

The project will teach people who have been physically damaged by leprosy how to manage their disabilities in the context of everyday life. Leprosy is a significant disabler of people in Nepal and the manual nature of their lives can make it very difficult for them to care for limbs and eyes that have lost feeling due to nerve damage caused by leprosy. “Self-care training” provides the skills and knowledge necessary to prevent further disability, whilst still carrying on with normal life to the degree that they can.

If you are interested in helping or hearing more, please contact Tina Edwards.
