OUR REGIONAL TEAM
The visit to hands at Work in Africa.
A group of churches are now forming a regional team to visit Hands at Work in Africa:
St John’s, Heath Hayes,
St Anne’s, Chasetown,
St Mary’s, Wheaton Aston,
Holy Trinity, Heath Town,
All Saints, Streetly.
Our team member is Yvonne Twigger. It is good that she will be another voice to continue the advocacy of Sheila and George Green who have made working visits since 2004.
The care workers and children of the marginalized communities helped by Hands are greatly encouraged and uplifted by meeting people from far away who are standing with them, and praying for them in their struggles. They had felt abandoned. The repeated visits by Hands give Hope, which is more valuable than money.
The expected outcomes are, firstly to develop a relational partnership between our church community and the Community Based Organizations in Africa that will transform both.
Secondly, we hope that, on return, the team’s churches will continue to work together to help Hands at Work UK develop more effective engagement of small churches.
