We support missions internationally, nationally and locally, through prayer, involvement, and giving. We hope to further develop our links with these organisations

International: Tear Fund

Teadfund

There are 80-90,000 orphans in Zimbabwe, mostly due to AIDS. St Peter's helps to support the Zoe project which helps orphans often in child headed households, supporting them to grow crops to feed their family and to raise goats. They are taught market gardening so they can sell their excess food. Our former Treasurer Laeeka visited the project earlier in 2015 and met Jean Webster who set up and heads the Zoe project. Laeeka was able to see first hand this valuable work. Currently the Zoe Project are raising funds for a second vehicle so they can send teams of volunteers to visit more children.

National: Ruth Sayers Mission Partner CMS

Ruth was sent out fom St Peter's as a Mission Partner with CMS in 2002 and has worked in Palestine, Egypt and Jordan. She is now working as a Mission Partner in Devonport, Plymouth, an ex-Naval estate.
Ruth tells us "The area in which I am based is an area of need; it’s an area that has been built on the influence of the dockyard and the naval presence but the reduction of spending over many years has resulted in significant deprivation and much unemployment. I am very aware of the sharp contrasts between the beauty of the area and the needs of the community and for an active spiritual presence in Devonport. This is what we are seeking to do in this place, showing the love of God to those who live here.

Local: Guildford Street Angels

Guildford Street Angels was launched in 2008 and is run by the Guildford Town Centre Chaplaincy, a charity established by the Churches of Guildford to care for people in our town centre at night.

Emma from St Peter's volunteered because she felt drawn to answer the call to care for the vulnerable: Matthew 25 v 35-45. Emma says that God has given her gifts that are useful for Street Angels. “As a psychiatric nurse I am already used to looking after vulnerable people and to working nights. I can't think of a better (more fun) way to spend a Friday night.” Street Angels have regular prayer meetings where all are welcome. Money raised is used for training volunteers, CRB checks, the distinctive Street Angels jackets and items given out at night such as flip flops, silver foil blankets, gloves, tissues, bottles of water and hundreds of lollipops.
